Carrying forward eligibility from 2016 to 2017

Please only complete this section if you applied to AND were eligible for DARE last year.

Eligibility for DARE carries forward for ONE year provided that you:

  • Apply to the CAO by 17.15 on 1 February 2017.
  • No later than 17:15 on 1 March 2017, disclose your disability and/ or specific learning difficulty in your CAO application and fully and correctly complete Section A of the Supplementary Information Form (SIF). You must answer YES to Question 1 (‘Do you wish to be considered for DARE?’) on Section A of the fully completed SIF by 17:15 on 1 March 2017.
  • Supply your correct 2016 CAO number under Question 1(b).

The outcome of your 2016 DARE application was communicated to you in writing in June 2016. If you applied to the CAO in 2016 and you were deemed eligible for DARE in 2016, then your DARE eligibility can be carried forward to your 2017 application.

You must enter your correct CAO 2016 number in the box provided.

You are still required to complete all relevant sections of the 2017 SIF form (Section A); however, you do not need to supply the Educational Impact Statement (Section B) or Evidence of Disability (Section C) as part of your application. In the event of being offered and accepting a DARE place in 2017, you may be required to provide the original documents that accompanied your 2016 DARE application.

You should get assistance from your parents or guardians and use the Application Handbook to help you answer all the relevant questions on your online DARE application. You can contact the CAO helpdesk if you require information about your 2016 DARE eligibility.

Note: You must tick the ‘Terms & Conditions’ box to confirm that all the information you provided is correct and that you undertake to comply with the regulations of the CAO. You must press ‘SUBMIT’ to complete your eligibility carry forward application.
