Carrying forward eligibility from 2016 to 2017

Please do not complete this section if you did not apply to or were not eligible for HEAR last year.

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

  1. Apply to CAO by 17.15 on 1 February 2017.
  2. No later than 17:15 on 1 March 2017, indicate in your CAO application that you wish to apply for the HEAR scheme and fully and correctly complete all elements of the HEAR form. Once you have completed the HEAR application form, you will get a checklist that tells you which documents you need to supply.
  3. Supply your correct 2016 CAO number under Question 1(b).

The outcome of your 2016 HEAR application was communicated to you in writing in June 2016. If you applied to CAO in 2016 and you were deemed eligible for HEAR in 2016, then your HEAR 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 HEAR application form; however, you do not need to supply supporting documents as part of your application.

In the event of being offered and accepting a HEAR place in 2017, you may be required to provide the original documents that accompanied your 2016 HEAR application.

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