Tomorrow (December 15) is a milestone day for Queensland’s more than 51,000 Year 12 graduates, with final end-of-school results revealed.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) will publish individual results, including Overall Positions (OPs), in student online learning accounts from 9am Saturday 15 December.

Independent Schools Queensland Executive Director David Robertson wished the class of 2018 every success for the future, particularly the 11,000 independent school graduates.

“Queensland school leavers will likely be feeling a mix of nerves and excitement tonight as they count down the hours to the release of their results,” Mr Robertson said.

“About half the graduating seniors will receive a Tertiary Entrance Statement, which includes their OP,” he said.

“With students today expected to experience 17 jobs over five careers, tomorrow represents just the start of an exciting and diverse career path.”

Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network Executive Officer Sue Kloeden said many parents and carers will be equally as nervous as their children on Saturday.

“Families walk the long school journey alongside their children and will be there to support them in this next phase of their lives, whatever path they end up following,” Ms Kloeden said.

“There are some excellent support services and websites to guide students and parents during this period, particularly those who are unsure about their future or need a Plan B. The QIS Parents Network has pulled together some key resources for parents in a post-school options web page.”

According to Mr Robertson, students and parents should feel confident about the future with surveys consistently showing the majority of Queensland school leavers are in education, training or employment (86.3%) six months after finishing school.

“According to the results of the latest Next Step Survey, studying for a Bachelor’s Degree remains the most popular destination accounting for 38.8% of Year 12 graduates who finished school in 2017.  The next most popular destination was full or part-time employment (28.2%) followed by vocational education and training, including apprenticeships and traineeships (19.4%),” he said.
