The six best results, in recognised subjects, in one Leaving Certificate Examination will be counted for points computation.
One sitting only of the Leaving Certificate Examination will be counted for points purposes.
In the case of certain subjects, e.g. Home Economics (General), Foundation Level Mathematics or Foundation Level Irish, some HEIs may not award the points shown above. If in any doubt, check with the Admissions Office of the appropriate HEIs..
Remember, you must first meet the minimum entry requirements in order to be considered for entry to a course. The bonus points are included in the overall points calculation only when Mathematics is one of the applicant's best six subjects following the addition of the bonus.
