Carrying forward eligibility from 2021 to 2022

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 17:00 on 1 February 2022.
  2. No later than 17:00 on 1 March 2022 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 2021 application number under Section 8 of the online HEAR application form.

The outcome of your 2021 HEAR application was communicated to you by email in June 2021. If you applied to CAO in 2021 and you were deemed eligible for HEAR in 2021, then your HEAR eligibility can be carried forward to your 2022 application.

You must enter your correct CAO 2021 number in the box provided.

You are still required to complete all relevant sections of the 2022 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 2022, you may be required to provide the original documents that accompanied your 2021 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 2021 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.
