What if … CAO First Round Questions?

A Career to Love

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain 

 

On the morning of the CAO First Round Offers, you will face one of the following options: What if I

  1. Got two offers?
  2. Didn’t receive my First Choice?
  3. Got not offer?

Whatever CAO First Round Offer options you are faced with ensure that you make no hasty decisions. You have time to make a decision so please do so carefully and with plenty of advice.

What if I got two offers in CAO First Round Offers?

If you are one of the lucky CAO applicants who received two CAO offers this morning congratulations.  This means the CAO offered you

  1. A Level 8 course and
  2. A Level 6/7 course.

You must now choose which course you want to accept. If you decide to accept your Level 8 course, go to  CAO, follow the Accept Offer procedure. By accepting your Level 8 course, you automatically decline your Level 6/7 course. You, therefore, need to do nothing further with your Level 6/7 course.If, on the other hand, you want to accept your Level 6/7 course and decline your Level 8 course

If on the other hand, you want to accept your Level 6/7 course and decline your Level 8 course you follow the same procedure. By accepting your Level 6/7 course, you automatically decline your Level 8 course.

What if I don’t receive my First Choice?

First things first, consider your first CAO offer as potentially your ONLY CAO OFFER. This means it is possible that you will not receive any more CAO offers. At this point, you can decide to

  1. Accept your First Offer,
  2. Defer your place. For more information on the Deferral Process, this article gives you plenty of information.
  3. Ignore any offer you don’t want and it goes away.

If you receive your 5th-course choice on your Level 8 list and your 3rd course choice on your Level 6/7  the following happens

  1. All courses on your CAO form beneath your 5th choice disappears and
  2. All courses on your CAO form below your 3rd choice on your Level 6/7 choice will disappear.
  3. Any courses above your 5th Level 8 choice remain and
  4. Any courses above your 3rd  Level 6/7 choice remain.

It is possible you will be offered a course higher up on your Level 6/7 or your Level 8 CAO choices in Second Round CAO offers.
