Rechecks are biggest issue
The burning question on the minds of students and parents ringing the National Parents Council helpline - 1800 265 165 - yesterday was about having an exam paper rechecked.
The helpline dealt with more than 400 personal callers - many with more than one issue. Other popular topics were apprenticeships, options after "failing" maths, points and the HEAR and DARE entry routes to colleges.
The helpline, which is sponsored by the Irish Independent, the Department of Education and eir, is open today from 10am to 7pm.
