With Year 12 results and OP scores to be released online from December 20, thousands of aspiring Queensland university students will find out if they’ve been accepted into their chosen program.

“The OP season is a very exciting time and the culmination of many years of hard work in secondary school,” said Academic Provost Professor Adam Shoemaker.

“Sometimes students just miss out on their desired score. However, this is by no means an obstacle to tertiary study at Griffith, a university which is committed to accessible excellence.There are many alternative pathways to those sought-after entry scores.”

“Over the past 14 years, thousands of Griffith graduates have come to the university through its highly successful partnership with the Queensland Institute of Business and Technology (QIBT). However, the QIBT pathway does not just cover Business and IT programs; it also includes sciences, criminology, engineering, graphic design, health and media and communications.

“Griffith also has a dual qualification arrangement with TAFE and this can culminate in being able to transfer into a Griffith Bachelor degree.

“The fastest way to increase one’s rank for another Griffith program is by enrolling at Griffith in the first place. Becoming a Griffith student fast-tracks your future in all sorts of ways.”

Through Open Universities Australia, students who complete four units above a pre-determined GPA cut-off may then apply for a place at Griffith.

“It’s all about considering the best pathway for you, one that provides a solid study foundation and maximises the possibility of future university enrolment and study,” Professor Shoemaker said.

On Saturday, students will be able to access their 2014 Year 12 results and OP scores through the Queensland Studies Authority’s Student Connect website.

To help prospective students make the most of their OP, Griffith University will hold Options Information Sessions at the Gold Coast and South Bank campuses from 10am-2pm on Saturday, December 20.
