UCD Entrance Scholars and TCD Exhibitions

We are delighted to announce that six of our outstanding students from the Rhetoric graduating class of 2017 have been recognised as UCD Entrance Scholars, while another six have been awarded Entrance Exhibitions in TCD. Each year both of these universities recognise the calibre of their incoming high-achieving students with these awards, which are presented to first year students who achieve 560 points or more in their Leaving Certificate (or equivalent second level examination) in recognition of their academic accomplishment to date.

Recipients are presented with a recognition certificate at a ceremonies held in November each year and their achievements are recorded on their academic transcript. This year’s awards ceremony were held last week and the following students from Rhetoric 2017 were honoured:
