We congratulate the Year 12 students from 2015 on their final academic results. Following a busy year, highlighted by academic, vocational and extracurricular achievements, our students are now looking forward to the university offers they will receive from QTAC tomorrow.
Students applying to university through the OP pathway had their results posted to them last month and we are pleased to announce that 9.7% received an OP 1-3 and 81.9% of students received an OP from 1-15.
Special congratulations must go to our two OP 1 students, Katie Sutcliffe and Arthis Zhang.
Students applying through the QTAC pathway will receive notification of their first round university offers tomorrow and we are expecting that all of our graduates who have applied for a university place will receive an offer at that time.
Principal Mr Ian Gamack said “These results add to a very successful year for Cathedral students both in and outside of the classroom. However, none of this would have been possible without the considerable hard work from our dedicated and supportive staff and I thank them for all the assistance they have given our students to reach their potential in an environment that values excellence and a life-long commitment to learning.”
