Senior students finish QCS tests

STUDENTS across the region were delighted to see an end to the gruelling two-day QCS exam which they completed yesterday.

Four students particularly pleased to finish were Amanda Miller, Jennifer Booth, Taylor Johnstone and Georgia Mazzer.

These four girls were relaxing after yesterday’s exertions and all said it had been an exhausting two days and it was now good to relax.

On the test itself, they said it wasn’t as hard as they first thought.

“It was much easier than the practice test,” Taylor said.

“I found the writing test much easier than the practice tests,” Georgia said.

Generally, the girls agreed that they all did the best they could over the two days and were hoping to pass.

“I did alright and hopefully I passed,” Jennifer said.

All girls are hoping to obtain an OP score and contemplating heading to university next year.

In the coming months they will be anxiously awaiting their results and QTAC placements.

“I really just want to see how I went on the test. I was thinking about attending university at CQU but I am now unsure,” Amanda said.

Jennifer is hoping to get an OP of 10 or under as she wants to head up north and attend James Cook University next year.

She is hoping to study marine science.

Taylor will stay close to home, hoping for a place at CQU Gladstone to study early childhood.

Georgia will be heading south to the University of Southern Queensland to study nursing or vet nursing – and for these four friends life after school will be very different.

The girls will take a short break before preparations for end-of-year exams, the school formal and end-of-school activities and then look forward to life after school and hopefully a place at their university of choice.
