GRADUATES: South Burnett’s top OP scorers

THIS time last week Year 12 graduates all eagerly looked up their long-awaited OP results.

The 2019 cohort of school-leavers made history as they became the last ones to ever receive an Overall Position result, which assists a student wanting to pursue tertiary study.

We caught up with some of the South Burnett's highest achievers and heard about their plans for 2020.

Matthew Early from Nanango State High School has finished his high school education with the highest OP score in his cohort.

Queensland Year 12 students will make the switch to ATAR, also known as the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank, in 2020.
