OP 2 is better news than losing a tooth
Nervous wait over for region’s Year 12 students
IT WAS a nervous wait for the region’s Year 12 students sitting in front of their computer screens.
Their Overall Position results were made available online on Saturday morning.
Burnett State College students performed admirably with the 2012 dux Adrian Taylor and school captain Roseanna Dolding receiving an impressive OP 2.
After being told the results would be posted online at 9am, Roseanna checked her Facebook at 8.45am to see her friends already posting their scores.
“I was in a blind panic,” she said.
“But then I had tears running down my face. Iwas bashing down Mum and Dad’s door, yelling, ‘I’ve got an OP 2’.
“They thought I was saying I lost a tooth.”
Fellow BSC school captain Blake Gannon was also rewarded for his studies with an OP 5 and hopes to study at the University of the Sunshine Coast to become a teacher.
Students Amy Cooper and Brady Urquhart also achieved OP 5s.
Monto State High School student Tamara Allen achieved an OP 6 and is looking at studying psychology.
Fellow students Luke Titmarsh scored an OP 7 and Madison May-Thomas got an OP 8.
Students must wait to see if their preferences for study at university are accepted, with the first round of offers coming out on Thursday, January 17. The tertiary entrance rank shows how students performed in their high school studies.
