A Leaving Cert student who appealed her exam results has been told she can start college on Monday.
Rebecca Carter took a case in the High Court, after the State Examinations Commission told her she'd have to wait until the middle of October for a mistake in totting-up her results to be fixed.
The delay would have meant she'd have to wait a full year to begin studying veterinary medicine in UCD.
Earlier this week, a Judge told the commission to make a decision on Rebecca's appeal by today, and to look at how fast it deals with all appeals in future.
The 19-year-old say's she's "absolutely delighted".
"Nothing was set in stone until I got that phone call this afternoon", she said.
"Nothing is going to stop me now", she promised.
Rebecca Carter's business paper has now been officially upgraded from a H2 to a H1 and her points from 554 to 566.
The official CAO offer will follow later today and she will be able to begin veterinary medicine in UCD next week.
In the ruling on Wednesday, the judge said that an appeal system which took a month and a half was "manifestly unfit for purpose".
He added that he did not want to see the same situation next year and recommended that all appeals be determined by the start of the academic year.
Officials from the Department of Education will now meet with the State Examination Commission and colleges to try resolve the issues raised by the ruling.
