Please note that CAO will not send applicants unsolicited emails or SMS text messages containing information about examination results. Examination results are provided to candidates by examining authorities.
How to identify a genuine SMS text message from CAO
In your inbox, the sender will be identified as 'CAO' rather than appearing to come from a mobile phone number.
The message will begin with 'CAO' and your 2013 CAO application number.
CAO will not direct you to any website other than www.cao.ie.
