CAO offers out today – Full list of LYIT points requirements

The number of CAO courses requiring 500 or more points has jumped by more than a quarter.

Around 50 thousand offers have just been made available online in this year's first round, following last week's Leaving Cert results.

Growth in demand for places has been mirrored in areas of the economy that have been on the rise, like business and engineering, as students look to target careers after third-level.

Prospective students now have a week to accept the places offered this morning and join the some 210-thousand people already in higher education.

Letterkenny Institute of Technology has seen increases in the requirments for a number of its courses, with the steepest Level 8 increase in General Entry Computing, up 65 to 300.

Here is the full list of points requirements for LYIT -
