Leaving Cert Students Face Tough Batte For College Places

With only two days left untill the leaving cert results are released, students from Monaghan face tough competition for a college place.

Experts are predicting some science courses could rise above 500 points for the first time, while the trend is also expected to spread to other areas like some agriculture and computing courses.

It’s being put down to a combination of a new bonus points system for maths, and competition amongst candidates.

The first round of CAO offers will be released one week from today.
