Congratulations to the Class of 2012

December 21, 2012

Amongst the finest in our College's history, our graduating Class of 2012 has achieved outstanding Overall Position (OP) results.

The OP result is a measure of a student’s position in a state-wide rank order, based upon their overall achievement in subjects that have been approved by the Queensland Studies Authority. This measure indicates how well a student has done in comparison to all other OP-eligible students in Queensland and is used for the purposes of tertiary admission only. The OP Bands range from OP1 (highest) to OP 25 (lowest).

Each year A.B. Paterson College publishes a summary of the OP results achieved by the graduating Year 12 class.  The 2012 summary of results provided below includes all results for students who gained an OP in 2012.

While such rankings do not portray or adequately describe the myriad of educational opportunities available, or the commitment to excellence within the educational environment of the College, they remain of great interest.

These rankings do indicate, however, a significant improvement on those achieved in 2011 and are, therefore, amongst the finest in the College’s history. It is with much pleasure that we congratulate the matriculating class on their individual performances and, just as importantly, on their performance as our 2012 graduating class.

A.B. Paterson College ........... Developing young men and women of character – leaders now
and for the future.
