The day has arrived for thousands of Queensland high school graduates to find out if all of their hard work has paid off.
More than 48,000 Year 12 graduates from across Queensland have received their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and OP scores online – via the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) Student Connect website.
Formal certificates will start arriving in by old fashioned mail from Monday.

The OPs will determine whether some school leavers will gain entry into their preferred university course.
733 students will receive an OP1, while 21,333 students will receive an OP between 1 and 15.
Those who haven’t received the result they were hoping for are being urged not to be discouraged.
“Students can upgrade their results or explore other ways to gain entry to university and training courses. There’s no need to be disheartened,” Minister for Education Grace Grace said in a statement.
“Results show the class of 2018 worked to a consistently high standard, with 94 per cent of graduates achieving a QCE,” Ms Grace said.
“The QCE is an internationally-recognised qualification that records student achievement in school courses, vocational education and training, workplace learning and university subjects.
“I’d also like to pay tribute to the teachers who have played a very important role in helping students reach their potential.”
