Level 3 Accounting develops the skills and knowledge learnt in Levels 1 and 2, and applies those skills and knowledge in the context
of partnerships and company business structures.
There are now six achievement standards, three internal and three externals. Students in this online class are expected to attend a
weekly video conference class. Regular communications between students and their teacher are vital in an online environment and
students are encouraged to engage with their teacher and other students through a range of web tools.

Any external standards assessed are only summative and as a result of practice exams.
In preparation for the external examinations at the end of the year, Adam will be sitting a practice exam for AS91404 and
AS91408 at the end of Term 2 and I will then be able to report the results. Adam did very well in the first internal, passing
AS91405 with an Excellence grade and he will be sitting the second internal, AS91409 early Term 3. The final internal, AS91407
will be worked on throughout Term 3, which will leave Term 4 to concentrate on preparation for external examinations.
Adam keeps in regular contact with me and always completes his set work in a timely manner.
What improvements can be made:
It would be beneficial for Adam to go onto the tki website, www.tki.org.nz and nzqa website, www.nzqa.govt.nz to access past
exam papers in preparation for the external examinations and start his study programme now. He knows what old standards
relate to the new standards introduced this year and has a study guide to assist in his studies.
I will be holding a “study day” on Friday, 16th
August at Selwyn College which would be hugely beneficial if Adam could attend,
and hopefully his school will be able to arrange the travel. There is also a free workshop being held at the University of Waikato in
late August to support students entering for Level 3 and Scholarship Accounting which I would like Adam to consider attending.
I am available for an interview at any time throughout the year. I can be contacted through phone, video conference, skype or
