Well done Hannah - top score!
FRASER Coast Year 12 graduate Hannah Skopp has received an OP1 as scores began filtering out across the state at the weekend.
Hannah, who went to Isis District State High School, was hoping for the highest Overall Position so she could study pharmacy at university.
She said she was expecting a score fairly close to an OP1 after being named dux earlier in the year.
Hannah was on her way to work at Coral Coast Pharmacy at Woodgate Beach on Saturday when she found out about her score. Her brother, Tom, looked it up on the internet and phoned his sister straight away.
Hannah has wanted to get into pharmacy for as long as she can remember and is hopeful her top score will mean she will be able to study for her dream career at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
Isis High principal Trevor French said he was not only proud of Hannah but also of the school because it “continued to provide the opportunities for students to excel”.
Mr French said there had been a graduate who had received an OP1 for the past four consecutive years.
Deputy principal Allan Cook has wished Hannah all the best and described her as a great student.
“She had straight As, was an excellent student and deserves an OP1.
“Congratulations to her; it’s been very well deserved.”
Eighty-two per cent of Isis High graduates were placed in the OP1 to 15 range. That is compared to 73 per cent of OP eligible students across Queensland.
There are 25 OP levels which determine acceptance into university; one is the highest grade.
