With the Leaving Certificate results set for release on Wednesday 14th August, Griffith College has some advice for parents ahead of the big day.

• Sit down in advance of the results to talk about options. Prepare a plan B in advance to decide what to do if points aren’t achieved.

• Remember that the CAO re-opens applications during August and September for college places that haven’t been filled with their Available Places utility.

• Remind students to be sensitive when discussing results with friends and encourage students to celebrate their achievement, even if their first or second preference isn’t secured. This is the start of a new chapter in the student’s life and should be celebrated.

Good luck to all students on August 14.
