Around 3,000 Kildare students are due to receive their results.
A guidance counsellor is warning Leaving Cert students that it's "unlikely" they'll start college in September, if they chose to appeal their results.
Sixth years will receive their results on Friday but won't know if they've secured a place in their chosen course until the following Wednesday.
It's expected points will rise this year, which will increase the number of appeals submitted.
Brian Mooney from the Education Matters Yearbook explains why the appeals process will be slow this year:
Determined to make sure school leavers see ALL their options for third level & not just some. This requires overhauling the information they see through CAO process. We need much greater visibility of further education options & apprenticeships. Meeting this week to advance this— Simon Harris TD (@SimonHarrisTD) August 29, 2021
