Changes to DARE Application Process

As schools remain closed due to COVID-19, DARE has made two temporary changes to the required documentation in order to enable applicants to complete their application by the published deadline of 15 March at 5:15pm:


  1. A Digital School Stamp and Signature will be accepted on the EIS this year – for instructions on adding a digital stamp/signature to the document please click here
  2. The date of updated literacy and numeracy scores for those applying under the Specific Learning Difficulties (ie Dyslexia and Dyscalculia) category – for full details click here


Details of these changes will be hosted at


The DARE deadlines of 1 March (completed online application) and 15 March (receipt of supporting documents) apply to allow sufficient time to process applications in time for CAO offers. If you have any further questions in relation to DARE applications, please consult with our FAQs. You can also contact one of our participating colleges.
