India’s school work yields dividends

TANNUM Sands State High School graduate India Plath waited up until midnight on Friday to find out her Overall Position score.

And she was relieved to learn she'd achieved what she'd hoped for - an OP 1.

"We were hoping for it (an OP 1) but there's no guarantee for your score.

"It was a bit of a relief to know that all the hard work of this year has paid off," she said.

India hopes to be accepted into the University of Queensland for a course in dentistry or medicine. "I've worked at a local dentist for the last two years and I'm really passionate about that area," she said. She spent many nights up studying, but she said it was important to have fun during your final year of schooling too.

"It's very stressful but at the end of it you look back and think it's worth it ... There were heaps of highlights of the year.

"One of my priorities was to have fun - I definitely went out and had a ball," India said.

During her final year India studied maths B, English, modern history, biology, chemistry and physics.
