Congratulations to Tara Suresh on being awarded an Entrance Exhibition from Trinity College.
Entrance Exhibitions reward academic achievement of new undergraduate entrants to Trinity College Dublin. They are awarded to the student accepted into the first year of a full-time undergraduate degree programme who achieves the highest points among Trinity entrants from their secondary school.
These awards demonstrate Trinity’s commitment to academic excellence and are a distinctive part of Trinity’s history. Entrance Exhibitions first came into being in 1870. They were established by Humphrey Lloyd who was an eminent physicist and Provost of Trinity. They were awarded to just 12 students on the basis of a competitive examination covering a wide range of subjects taken in the first year. Since 1985, Entrance Exhibitions have been awarded on the basis of performance in public examinations such as the Leaving Certificate.
