“Unfortunately, not everyone gets the result which they wanted. What I would say to those that are disappointed with their results or who do not get what they anticipate is ensure that you view your exam scripts and if necessary get your examination papers rechecked. Even if you do not get the points for the course you wish to study it is not the end of the world. There are always ways and means of getting to where you want to be in the future.” says Fine Gael Seanad Spokesperson on Education & Skills and Senator for Limerick City, Maria Byrne.
