New guide will help with stress of CAO forms
WITH the college application season opening next week, parents will welcome a new guide to help them help their children through the process.
Filling in the CAO form can be a source of anxiety and confusion, but the new publication provides pointers on how parents and guardians can support students.
The CAO opens for online applications at noon on Tuesday – and 'A Guide for Parents and Guardians', available online only at www.cao.ie, is a first from the agency.
Meanwhile, NUI Maynooth is handing over control of its Facebook page and Twitter accounts to its students – on a trial basis
Prospective students or parents can use the hashtag #AskMaynooth on @GoNUIMaynooth or visit facebook.com/gonuimaynooth to ask existing students questions about the college.
