OP scores and offers

Body

The release of OP scores and university offers can be a time of either excitement or disappointment. Your child should be proud of their achievements, whether or not they received the OP they were hoping for. They still have plenty of options and opportunities for their future.

OP scores

If your child didn’t get the OP or entry score they were hoping for, or if they don't meet a program's entry requirements – don’t panic.

An OP or an entry score isn’t the be-all and end-all of gaining admission to university, or a particular UQ program.

We offer a range of pathway options to help your child achieve their goals. 

If you’re unsure about the right pathway for your child, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

OP Results Advice Night

After the release of OPs each year, we host an OP Results Advice Night for prospective students.

The night is designed to let your child discuss their UQ study options after receiving their OP and gives them the opportunity to speak face-to-face with experts from all our study areas. 

Your child has the option of changing their preferences after attending the advice night. 

How to respond to a QTAC offer

If your child applied through QTAC, they will need to respond to their offer through QTAC.

Your child has these options when responding to an offer:

  • Outright accept, defer, or reject.
  • Conditional accept, defer, or reject with no change to preferences.
  • Conditional accept, defer, or reject with change to preferences.

More information about these options and how to respond is available on QTAC’s Offers page.

Deferring and gap years

Recent research has linked gap years with better performance at university.

If you think your child might benefit from a break between high school and university, we encourage you to consider the option of a gap year and to discuss this with them. 

Your child has the option of deferring a UQ offer for up to one year.
