CAO is the last piece in the process

The long wait is almost at an end as the CAO figures come out on Monday. We have had the tension of the exams, the excitement of the celebrations and now the last piece in the process is about to fall into place.

Most students will get something they want from the CAO offers, even if it is not the college course that tops their list of choices.

For some there will be disappointment.

For others, they may get their first choice but find their chosen course is not what they expected or what they really wanted.

But the most important thing to remember is that there is more than one way to pursue their chosen career -- whether that is through repeating the year, taking a diploma, changing courses or broadening their horizons.

We wish every student the best of luck in finding their true path to the future.
