YEAR 12 school leavers took a deep breath on Saturday when they found out their Overall Position (OP) results.
Last Saturday hundreds of Gladstone's school leavers logged on to the web to find out their results. Chloe Clayton was among those keen to find out.
'I was a little disappointed when I found out, because I knew I could have done better,' she said.
'I got an OP 13, which will definitely get me into my course.
'My Mum said as long as I got enough to get into my course that is what counted, which is true.''
Chloe said she wanted to get into Bachelor of Learning Management, primary school at Central Queensland University.
'I require a OP 17 to get into my course, so I certainly have enough to get in,' she said.
Chloe said she wanted to get a higher OP but she was just pleased to get enough to get in.
'Year 12 certainly was a busy year for me,' she said. 'We had a lot of assignments and other school commitments which definitely made it hard to keep up with the work.
Chloe said she was starting to get withdrawal symptoms from school.
'I really miss the social side, seeing everyone each day,' she said. Overall Positions, or OPs, provide a statewide rank order of students on a 1 to 25 scale, 1 being the highest, based on students achievement in the subjects studied for the Queensland Senior Certificate.
