Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Today is the closing date for completion of online HEAR/DARE forms

17.15pm deadline Friday 1st March 2019

Today is the closing date for completion of online HEAR/DARE forms
If you are applying to HEAR or DARE for CAO 2019, all elements of your online application form must be completed by 17.15pm today (1st March).

Applicants must disclose their disability and/ or specific learning difficulty in their CAO application and fully and correctly complete Section A of the Supplementary Information Form (SIF).

To apply to DARE, you must answer YES to Question 1 (‘Do you wish to be considered for DARE?’) on Section A of the fully completed SIF by 17:15 on 1 March 2019.

Applicants who miss the HEAR or DARE March 1 deadline wishing to make an appeal must:

  1. Write to the CAO Independent Appeals Commission stating the nature of their appeal.
  2. Provide objective documentary evidence to support their appeal.

Appeals of this nature must be addressed to:

The Secretary
CAO Independent Appeals Commission
Tower House
Eglinton Street
Galway
Ireland

Examples of why an applicant might appeal may include:

  • An applicant who missed the March 1 deadline due to not having a diagnosis for their disability or condition at the time but now wishes to apply to DARE as they have received a diagnosis. Appeals of this nature must be accompanied by documentary evidence from a consultant detailing that onset of the disability or condition occurred before the March 1 deadline and that the applicant had made attempts to get a diagnosis of their condition in a timely manner for the purposes of DARE. (i.e. initiating this by 1 March)
  • An applicant who missed the March 1 deadline due to circumstances beyond their control, for example they were hospitalised for a significant period and as a result missed the March 1 deadline. Appeals of this nature must be accompanied by documentary evidence from a consultant or professional working under the instruction of the consultant outlining the details of the circumstances which prevented the applicant from meeting the March 1 deadline.
