As part of the January offer round the Queensland Tertiary Admission Centre revealed the minimum OP score required for an offer to be made into each degree.
The most OP1 students have been admitted to the University of Queensland with 106 students successfully receiving offers today, followed by 55 at Griffith University, 23 at the Queensland University of Technology, 17 at James Cook University and 10 at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
QTAC CEO Dr John Griffiths said students who had not received an offer today should not stress with subsequent offer rounds to come and various alternative pathways available to gain entry into university.
He congratulated the 17,688 Queensland school leavers who had already received offers into their dream tertiary courses.
"Those who have received an offer have until 4pm on Tuesday 21 January 2020 to respond," he said.
Dr Griffiths reminded Queenslanders that they could now change preferences on their QTAC applications, allowing them to be more competitively considered for further offer rounds.
Nearly 56 per cent of year 12 students in the state with an OP between 1 and 5 made UQ their first preference.
UQ's Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Joanne Wright said their Bachelor of Environmental Science had the largest percentage increase in undergraduate first preferences, with a 66 per cent year-on-year rise.
"In terms of demand for particular programs, we're continuing to see a lot of demand for courses prized by tech-focused employers - including programs like maths, computer science and advanced science.
But she reminded Queenslanders there were subsequent top up offer rounds until the February 20.
"There is still time for students to contact us and talk through the options available," she said.
QUT's Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Sheil said the reduced cohort of Queensland Year 12 students who graduated last year meant there were fewer applications.
"QUT had planned for this and so has been able to make all its offers to applicants ranked in the top 30 per cent of the state.
"For example, there is still a high demand for engineering, science, maths and information technology courses at our Gardens Point campus, thanks to the university's strong focus on STEM engagement and our investment in excellent facilities," she said.
"Places are still available for semester one entry in many QUT courses, including Nursing, Law and Education, so it is not too late to apply."
