Going to College is a four-part series helping you to prepare for some nerve-wracking - and exciting - weeks ahead, presented by Síona Cahill, former USI President.

From the Leaving Cert results to CAO offers and then making plans for college or elsewhere, it’s stressful and life-changing, but this series will help with practical advice, tips and insights from experts in this area.

For this first episode, the Leaving Cert results are out on Tuesday 13th August and the days beforehand can be nerve-wracking. So, what can you expect on the day itself and what to do if you're not happy with the results you got?

To help you deal with the day, Síona is joined by Guidance Counsellor, Betty McLaughlin, Eric Ehgie, Welfare Officer with the Irish Second-Level Students Union and himself awaiting his Leaving Cert results, Mary Quirke from Career Confidence, and Colette Harrison, QQI’s Manager of Awards and Certification.
