The anxious wait is now over for Year 12 graduates, with the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) releasing the final results and OPs online just moments ago.
Thousands of nervous teens were able to log on to the QCAA’s Student Connect website at 9am to get an idea as to how their tertiary study options might pan out.
Those who are a bit ‘old school’ can wait for the postie to deliver certificates early next week.

This year, a record 53,098 young people completed Year 12, with 93 per cent achieving a Queensland Certificate of Education.
Education Minister Grace Grace congratulated students and teachers on a successful year.
“I congratulate the class of 2017 on its outstanding performance, and thank the teachers who play such an important role in supporting Queensland students to achieve consistently impressive results,” Ms Grace said in a statement.
Ms Grace said graduates should not be disheartened if they don’t get the results they are hoping for.
“Graduates who are disappointed still have lots of options. They can upgrade their results or explore other ways to gain entry to university and training courses,” she said.
QCAA Chief Executive Officer Chris Rider said Certificates of Academic Commendation would be sent to 953 graduates who received Very High Achievement in at least 24 semesters of Authority subjects (the equivalent of six VHAs).
“The commendation is the first category to be awarded in the annual Queensland Certificate of Education Achievement Awards,” Mr Rider said.
“Winners in a further six categories — including Queensland’s highest achieving student —will be announced in February.”
