Year 12 Results Set to Hit Student Online Accounts on Saturday
There will be a mix of anticipation and nerves in the households of the graduating class of 2019 tonight as Queensland school-leavers and their families count down to the release of Year 12 results.
Students will be able to access their final marks online, including their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and Overall Positions (OPs), from Saturday 14 December.
Independent Schools Queensland Executive Director David Robertson wished the state’s almost 38,000 Year 12 graduates, particularly the 8,600 from independent schools, every success in the future.
“This year’s graduates are history-makers – they were Queensland’s first statewide group of Prep students and are the last school-leavers to receive an OP – a tertiary ranking system that has been in place in Queensland since 1992,” Mr Robertson said.
“Whatever result students achieve and whatever their ambition, there is significant support available to help them realise their goals and navigate their next steps,” he said.
“Students and parents can also take heart from the destinations of last year’s school-leavers. Almost 9 out of 10 graduates surveyed were either studying for a university or vocational education and training qualification or had a job within six months of leaving school. About 4 in 10 of these students were studying for a bachelor’s degree while about 3 in 10 were working.”
Newly appointed Executive Officer of the Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Justine Cirocco encouraged school-leavers and their parents and carers to tap into the extensive range of events and support available to help them navigate post-school life.
“The QIS Parents Network has put together a website post detailing upcoming university open days as well as study and pathway websites that will help arm students with the information they need to chart this next phase of their lives,” Ms Cirocco said.
“Students still need the encouragement and support of their parents and carers during this important changeover from familiar school routines to post-school independence,” she said.
“At ages 17 and 18 these young men and women have time on their side to try different study or employment options to narrow down what interests and motivates them.”
Parents are encouraged to bookmark the QIS Parents Network website and follow its Facebook page to keep up to date with tertiary offer dates and other post-school advice and support.
