Carrying forward eligibility from 2020 to 2021

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 2021.
  2. No later than 17:15 on 1 March 2021 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.
  3. Supply your correct CAO 2020 application number under Section 8 of the online HEAR application form.

The outcome of your 2020 HEAR application was communicated to you by email in June 2020. If you applied to CAO in 2020 and you were deemed eligible for HEAR in 2020, then your HEAR eligibility can be carried forward to your 2021 application.

You must enter your correct CAO 2020 number in the box provided.

You are still required to complete all relevant sections of the 2021 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 2021, you may be required to provide the original documents that accompanied your 2020 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 2020 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.
