Changes to Application Process 2021

Recognising the difficulty applicants and schools are facing due to extended periods of school closure, temporary changes have been made to the 2021 DARE process to help students to make their applications. To ensure supporting documentation reaches CAO in time for the March 15th deadline, DARE has made the following two changes to Section B Educational Impact Statement (EIS)

  1. Schools can now electronically sign off students’ supporting documentation. For further details please click here; and
  2. Students applying with Specific Learning Difficulties can now use literacy or numeracy attainment test scores which are up to three years older than those originally sought (from 2016 instead of 2019). For further details please click here

If you require any further clarification, you can contact a participating HEI here
