The wait is almost over for more than 50,000 Queensland school graduates who will tomorrow (Saturday 16 Dec) receive their eagerly anticipated Year 12 results.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) will publish individual results in student online learning accounts from 9am Saturday.

Independent Schools Queensland Executive Director David Robertson wished all school leavers every success for the future, particularly the 11,000 graduates from independent schools.

“Tonight may be a sleepless night for some students who have a clear goal about the course they want to study and the results they need to make that happen,” Mr Robertson said.

“About half the graduating seniors will receive a Tertiary Entrance Statement, which includes their Overall Position (OP) score – a key gateway to the tertiary course of their choice,” he said.

“Whatever the results, it’s important students remember there are many paths to success.”

“They have time on their side to study, train and work in a range of different fields before finding their passion. Being flexible and enterprising are two skills in demand by employers in today’s mobile gig economy.”

Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Executive Officer Sue Kloeden said many parents and carers would also be holding their breath as their sons and daughters logged on to get their results.

“Whether students experience relief, excitement or disappointment, Queensland parents will be there to support them as they have throughout their entire schooling lives,” Ms Kloeden said.

According to Mr Robertson, the graduates of 2017 can take heart from the findings of annual surveys examining the study and work destinations of Queensland Year 12s.

“The good news is the majority of Queensland school leavers are either in education, training or employment (86 percent) six months after finishing school, according to the results of the latest Next Step survey,” he said.

“Studying for a Bachelor Degree remains the most popular destination, accounting for 39.3% of Year 12 graduates who finished school in 2016, followed by full or part-time employment (27.4%) and vocational education and training (19.5%).”

“Instead of launching straight into their chosen degree, some school leavers choose to travel and work, undertake a shorter course of study or take a break. According to the survey 1 in 10 graduates from 2016 deferred their university course or were waiting for a course to begin.”
