Scholarship provides recognition and monetary reward to
top students in their last year of schooling.
Scholarship exams enable candidates to be assessed
against challenging standards, and are demanding for the
most able candidates in each subject.
Scholarship candidates are expected to demonstrate high-
level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and
to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills,
understanding and ideas to complex situations.
Scholarship – from NZQA

Format of the assessment
The examination will be resource-based.
In 2014, the examination questions and resource
booklet will focus on urbanization, urban settlements,
and urban growth.
Some resource materials (such as maps, text,
photographs, models, graphs, tables and cartoons)
related to this theme will be provided, to assist
candidates within this geographic context.
