HUNDREDS of Leaving Cert students can expect new college offers this week after getting an upgrade in their results.
The State Examinations Commission ( SEC) is today releasing the results of appeals by 5,141 of this year's 55,815 candidates. About one in five appeals have been successful. In some cases, the improved result may mean the candidate is entitled to a new college offer.
Anyone receiving a late CAO offer is entitled to the place this year, but colleges often encourage students to defer because of what they have already missed.
Candidates will receive the results of their appeals today either through their school or through the online service on www.examinations.ie.
