How NCEA works

  1. 1. How NCEA works
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>NCEA is the main qualification for secondary school kids in New Zealand. </li></ul><ul><li>NCEA stands for the National Certificate of Educational Achievement </li></ul><ul><li>It comes in three levels – 1, 2 and 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Comprised of standards which lead to credits </li></ul><ul><li>External exams as well as internal assessment </li></ul>
  3. 3. Setting the standard <ul><li>Subjects are divided up into all the things you need to know – they’re called standards </li></ul><ul><li>Each standard is worth credits </li></ul><ul><li>Credits count towards the final qualification </li></ul><ul><li>Credits accumulate throughout the year </li></ul><ul><li>Need 80 credits to get an NCEA qualification </li></ul>
  4. 4. Results <ul><li>Tell you a lot more than just – “NCEA level 1, passed”. </li></ul><ul><li>Results notice shows your result for each standard </li></ul><ul><ul><li>N : Not achieved </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A : Achieved </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>M : Merit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E : Excellence </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Merit and Excellence <ul><li>If you get 50 credits with Merit or Excellence, you get a Merit or Excellence endorsement included in your qualification </li></ul><ul><li>Can be useful if you're doing well in particular courses or subjects </li></ul>
  6. 6. Course endorsement <ul><li>Tells people you are especially good at a particular subject or course </li></ul><ul><li>If you get 14 credits with Excellence in a particular course you will have that course ‘endorsed with Excellence’ </li></ul><ul><li>Good for showing results to people after leaving school – for work or going somewhere else to study. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Planning for your career <ul><li>Good to have an idea where you want to go </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure the standards you are studying are going to give you the results you need to do what you want to do when you leave school </li></ul><ul><li>Need to get credits in the standards that will be useful to employers or that the university will expect to see in your results </li></ul><ul><li>Universities want to see lots of Excellences in your results </li></ul><ul><li>Try and get as many Excellences or Merits as possible </li></ul>
  8. 8. Have more questions? <ul><li>Talk to the experts – your teachers </li></ul><ul><li>Visit the NZQA website – www.nzqa.govt.nz </li></ul><ul><li>Phone NZQA on 0800 697 296 </li></ul>
