Graduating classes of 2018 wake to OP results

HUNDREDS of Southern Downs school leavers can access their OP ranking from today, marking the end to 12 years of study.

While formal certificates will start arriving in the post from next week, graduates can access their results and OPs online by logging into their account on the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority Student Connect website.

Across the state 733 students received an OP1, the highest ranking on offer and 21,333 students will receive an OP between 1 and 15.

Students will also receive their Queensland Certificate of Education.

Queensland Minister for Education Grace Grace congratulated more than 48,000 Year 12 graduates.

"Results show the class of 2018 worked to a consistently high standard, with 94 per cent of graduates achieving a QCE," she said.

"That is a fantastic result and I congratulate the students for their efforts.

"The QCE is an internationally-recognised qualification that records student achievement in school courses, vocational education and training, workplace learning and university subjects.

"I'd also like to pay tribute to the teachers who have played a very important role in helping students reach their potential."
