“Pretty much the first thing I did was open my laptop and head to the website because I really wanted to know, and I was very very surprised, I started screaming and I was crying and my mum rushed in, it was a great moment,” she told The Courier-Mail.

“At about 7.30 this morning I thought maybe they would release them for 9am and I thought I couldn’t wait another hour-and-a-half.

“Such a great end to such a not-so-great year, it’s a great early Christmas present.”

Ms Samios was dux of the prestigious girls school and hoped to achieve the highest ranking to study medicine at Griffith University.

“It’s such a relief, it’s a weight lifted off my shoulders,” she said.

Brisbane State High School’s Stamatios Iconomidis also achieved a 99.95. It comes as Queensland schools are heralding strong performance in the first year of the new system.
