Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Doing the Leaving Cert in 2018

Tools to help Leaving Cert Students

Doing the Leaving Cert in 2018?

Downloading the CareersPortal CAO Point Calculator App will be really helpful and it's absolutely free!

The latest app from CareersPortal.ie is an essential tool for all students of the Irish Leaving Cert.

Designed for both iPad, iPhone and Android, the Leaving Cert CAO Points Calculator does exactly that - it calculates your CAO points based on your subject results.

It’s quick and easy to use. You can input as many subjects as you want from Higher and Ordinary papers and the calculator will work out your top six scores, as used by the CAO.

The Leaving Cert CAO Points calculator is for students who are sitting the Leaving Cert in 2018 and beyond.

The calculator allows for the inclusion of LCVP grades and the 25 bonus points available to those who sit Higher Maths and achieve a H6 grade or greater.

We have not included Foundation level points as these may not be accepted by all colleges and the results may be misleading.

Download it now from iTunes Leaving Cert CAO Points Calculator.

Download it now for android  CAO Points Calculator Android .

A menu system included in the App provides a direct link to the CareersPortal CAO CourseFinder where you can search for the latest information on all current courses. The CourseFinder has loads of filters you can use to drill down and find the perfect courses. 

Examples of some of the filters in the CourseFinder include;

  • New Courses for 2018
  • Which courses accept ordinary level maths
  • Which courses don't require a science subject
  • All courses in a specific region, such as Munster
  • All Level 7 course or all Level 8 courses
  • All courses in a specific subject areas such as busines or enghineering
  • View courses with progression routes from PLC courses
  • You can also use this link to find the final round CAO cut off points from 2017
