I've seen people say 'Higher Links' & 'Pilot Scheme'. Whats the difference between the 2 and how do i find out which one i am.
Will i still have a chance of getting an offer on the 23rd?
it depends on what course u were doing and what u applied for. the higher links scheme is related directly to your course eg. if u get 5 specific distinctions eg communications plus 4 others then you may be succesful in getting a 3rd level place that requires those modules eg.
to get Social Science you would need to get a full DCHSX award with distinctions in communications, human growth and development, work experiance, care practice and provision etc.
the pilot links scheme applies to IT's for plc colleges in your area. eg.
in cork, people from college of comm, CSN and St. Johns can apply under this scheme and there are places reserved for people applying directly from those plc colleges. same applies to the other counties.
sorry if i've made that confusing!
only a few offers were made yest, the bulk will be made on the 23rd along with the leaving certs, so don't worry yet!
