If an applicant, for any reason, is seeking exemptions from minimum entry requirements (e.g. exemptions from Irish or modern language requirements) then they should contact the Admissions Offices of the Hgher Education Institutions they are applying to (or, in the case of NUI institutions they should apply to the NUI without delay and no later than 21 days after opening their CAO account - see for details).

Applicants must make arrangements for exemptions each year they apply.
