The proposal was forward from the SU to the Student Council and it was put to a vote. 82% of all who voted, 3,504 Trinity students said they didn't want the new supplemental fees.

Despite the outcome of the student vote, the College Board of Trinity made the decision to introduce a flat rate of €450 for any exam a student must repeat.
