Hi there,


I'm currently waiting for my de facto visa to be granted so I can get back to OZ and make a start on building my life down under. While i'm eagerly waiting, i thought i would have a look at what jobs are available at the moment. I noticed with one job i saw, it asked for the matriculation score from high school and also something about an OP 6+ which (i think) was for a degree.


I'm from the UK so I hold 11 GCSE's and a first class honours degree...is this what the two are referring too?


Any help with this would be grateful and appreciated,

There are no exams at 16 and therefore no equivilant to GCSE's in Australia and to make it more complicated each state has it's own system of university entrance gradings - OP (overall position) is Queensland's.


I wouldn't worry too much though as this is for entrance to university and once you have a degree no-one is going to be overly interested in your high school education. It sounds like you are over-qualified for the job you were looking at :)
