Quinn resting easy while fellow colleagues await ATAR results

Quinn Brennan finished Year 12 last week with a sigh of relief.

While many of her fellow colleagues are waiting with bated breath for their ATAR results which won’t be released for another fortnight, she’s got a guaranteed entry into uni through CQUniversity’s Principal’s Recommendation Scheme (PRS).

The PRS is a program that provides an alternate entry pathway to CQU based on the recommendation of a school Principal, rather than ATAR.

“Knowing I had a guaranteed place at university took the pressure off me while I was sitting exams,” Quinn explained.

“It allowed me to focus on what was important such as my schoolwork and gave me the opportunity to relax and enjoy some down time.

“I am pleased that I know what my future path looks like.”

The Toolooa State Highschool graduate and Gladstone local has been accepted into CQUniversity’s Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Diploma of Professional Practice (Co-op Engineering) and will relocate to Rockhampton to study the degree.

“I have lived in Gladstone all of my life although I often go to Rockhampton for shopping and social activities and I am very excited about what next year will bring,” she said.

“I am excited to take on the challenges, demands and requirements of the Bachelor of Engineering and am looking forward to all the possibilities it may bring.”

CQUniversity has admitted over 350 PRS applications for entry into 2021 with more still being processed.

And it is not too late to apply with applications closing on Tuesday, 1 December.
