NCEA re­sults out to­day for 4375 North­land stu­dents

The Northern Advocate - - Local News - Mikaela Collins

The wait is over for thou­sands of North­land stu­dents who have been anx­ious to find out how well they did in ex­ams.

Re­sults for the Na­tional Cer­tifi­cate of Ed­u­ca­tional Achieve­ment (NCEA) will be avail­able on the NZ Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Au­thor­ity (NZQA) web­site to­day which means the 4375 North­land stu­dents who sat ex­ams can see how they fared.

Kristine Kilkelly, NZQA deputy chief ex­ec­u­tive as­sess­ment, said more than 165,000 stu­dents na­tion­wide would be able to check their re­sults.

“We ded­i­cate IT re­sources to­wards en­sur­ing re­sults are ac­ces­si­ble and we test ex­ten­sively in the lead up to re­sults re­lease. We ac­tively man­age all our sys­tems to en­sure max­i­mum per­for­mance.

“If stu­dents do ex­pe­ri­ence a de­lay in ac­cess­ing their re­sults on­line, this could be due to a num­ber of fac­tors, in­clud­ing what kind of de­vice the stu­dent is us­ing and the qual­ity of in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity they have.”

NCEA are na­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tions for se­nior sec­ondary school stu­dents.

There are three lev­els of NCEA cer­tifi­cate and to achieve each level stu­dents must gain a de­fined num­ber of cred­its which they can get through as­sign­ments and ex­ams.

To gain NCEA level 1 stu­dents need to achieve 80 cred­its. To gain NCEA lev­els 2 and 3 stu­dents need to achieve 60 cred­its in each level (plus 20 cred­its which carry over from the pre­vi­ous year).

Stu­dents who plan to go to univer­sity will also be hop­ing they achieve Univer­sity En­trance (UE) — the min­i­mum re­quire­ment to go to a New Zealand univer­sity.

Kilkelly said staff at the NZQA call cen­tre would be ready to an­swer any ques­tions stu­dents may have about their re­sults. Con­tact the call cen­tre on 0800 697 296 or email [email protected]
