The scheme is designed to assist students who have not achieved the required grade in maths for entry into WIT. The process provides a “second chance” for students to achieve that grade by attempting a paper comparable to the leaving certificate ordinary level paper.
Candidates who apply to sit the examination at WIT, and if they achieve the designated grade specific to their chosen programme of study, will be offered a place (subject to numbers) as a CAO Round 4 offer in September 2017. The scheme does not provide any additional points to the total leaving certificate score.
Further details about WIT’s Maths Entry Scheme 2017 are available at www.wit.ie/mathsentry . Please note that application forms must be completed and returned on or before 12pm, Thursday 24 August 2017. I would greatly appreciate if you could bring the above information to the attention of your colleagues, students and their parents.
