Year 12 results and OPs out December 18
The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) will release final results and OPs for Year 12 graduates online this Saturday.
Education Minister Kate Jones said certificates would arrive in the post early next week.
“A record 92 per cent of the 51,022 Year 12 students had achieved a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) — their passport to further education, training or work,” Ms Jones said.
“The QCE is an internationally-recognised qualification that recognises student achievement in school courses, vocational education and training, workplace learning and university subjects.
“Achieving a QCE shows that a student has worked consistently and to a high standard during their senior schooling, and has skills suited to their preferred post-school pathway.
“As well as congratulating students, it is important to acknowledge that Queensland schools do a great job in supporting hard working students to achieve their goals.”
Ms Jones said students should not be disheartened if they didn’t get the results they hoped for.
“I encourage anyone who is disappointed with their results to be aware they have many options,” she said.
"They might work towards upgrading their qualifications or explore alternative ways of securing a university place or accessing training programs.”
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 Awards for Year 12 graduates,” Mr Rider said.
“Winners in a further six categories, including Queensland’s Outstanding Academic Achiever and Highest Result on the QCS Test, will be announced at the awards ceremony in February.”
Students can access their Year 12 results online from 9 am on Saturday 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 (external site).
