The moment many Year 12 students have been awaiting/dreading arrived on the weekend with OP results Gladstone being made available.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) released final results and OPs for Year 12 graduates online Saturday 17th of December and certificates will arrive in the post from this week.

Students could/can access their Year 12 results from Saturday 17 December using their Learner Unique Identifier (LUI) and password to log into their learning account on the QCAA’s Student Connect website https://studentconnect.qcaa.qld.edu.au Students who have questions about their results can call the Student Connect hotline on 1800 804 991.

The statewide results show:

  • 740 students will receive an OP1 — nine more than last year
  • 21,403 students will receive an OP between 1 and 15 — 336 more than last year

A breakdown of regional and school will be available in February, called the ‘Outcomes Report’ which will show a school by school comparison of results. OP results Gladstone are currently only available for individual students.

Education Minister Kate Jones said it had been a year of record achievement in senior secondary schools.

“Ninety-three per cent of the 51,613 Year 12 students achieved a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE),” Ms Jones said.

“We are continuing to see increasing number of students achieving a QCE with another increase on last year’s record.

 

“I congratulate the class of 2016 on its success and thank Queensland’s dedicated teachers for supporting students every day in the classroom.”

 

QCAA chief executive officer Chris Rider said Certificates of Academic Commendation would be sent to 908 students who received Very High Achievement (VHA) in at least 24 semesters of Authority subjects (the equivalent of six VHAs).

“The commendation is the first category to be awarded by the QCAA in the annual Queensland Certificate of Education Achievement Awards,” Mr Rider said.

“Winners in a further six categories will be announced at an awards ceremony in February.”
