Nonetheless at the moment there are students who remain indecisive about future roads which require prompt decisions. While the vast majority are happy enough to accept their top preferences, others find themselves at a crossroads. Students that have been offered their third or fourth choices (or lower) ask themselves, should they accept a lower choice or repeat the Leaving Cert?

They include depression, anxiety, and conduct disorders, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives (Mental Health Ireland).
