The OP (Overall Position) score is used solely for tertiary education admission. It reflects each student’s position in a Queensland-wide ranking order of overall achievement in Queensland Studies Authority-approved subjects. Overall positions range from an OP1 (the highest) through to an OP25.

Fairholme QCS percentile bands for 2017

The QCS (Queensland Core Skills Test) is a common state-wide test designed for Year 12 students which contributes information for the calculation of Overall Positions (OPs) and Field Positions (FPs) and is used to rank students for tertiary entrance.

These strong results are representative of a committed and focused approach to learning while at Fairholme College, as well as the steady support of family and friends. Best wishes to all of our Year 12 girls as they step forward into their next phase of learning; one that will draw from key qualities of persistence, grit and resilience.
