OP 2 is bet­ter news than los­ing a tooth

Ner­vous wait over for re­gion’s Year 12 stu­dents

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
