Students await their final rank
WHILE the Christmas countdown is on, 2016 graduates are eagerly awaiting the release of their OP rankings.
The students' Overall Positions will be released on Saturday from 9am.
OPs rank Year 12 achievement based on academic performance - 1 being the highest level and 25 being the lowest.
Each student receives an individual ranking which is used by universities when selecting eligible applicants for each course.
"We have mixed expectations this year,” St Luke's Anglican School's Head of Senior School Robyn Deer said.
"This year we had a smaller cohort and last year we had four OP 1 students, if we could get anywhere near that, that would be great.
"We hope all students have done well and know they are very excited to see their results.”
Bundaberg Christian College principal Paul Sterling said their school was expecting some great results.
"Last year we had 33 students within the one to five range and we are hoping this year we will have similar results,” he said.
Juliana Chuey a Bundaberg Christian College graduate, hopes to further her love of science with a degree in biomedical science at the University of Queensland.
"I'm a bit nervous, but I'll be all right with whatever result I get,” she said.
"I chose biomedical science because I love science and this degree covers a wide range, but I don't want to become a doctor.”
Courtney McKim said she was not overly concerned with the ranking release.
"I'm not really bothered, whatever score I get will be enough to get in to what I want to do,” the future primary school teacher said.
