This will allow students to log onto yooni.ie and complete the 'Yooni Fit assessment' that matches leaving certificate students to 3rd level courses within the CAO system. The assessment involves students completing a career interest inventory, a personality test, and inputting their predicted grades. The 'Yooni Fit' results are then engineered through our system using artificial intelligence to match students to courses that they are best suited to".
