ASHS Update – Further changes to NCEA

Kia ora whānau,

As we highlighted in recent communications, there have been further changes announced in regards to Auckland students working towards their NCEA in 2021.

To recognise the extended disruption for senior secondary school students in Auckland, the Minister of Education has today announced a full reintroduction of the measures which applied for students in Auckland last year, when a similar total amount of time was spent in lockdown.

In summary, these are:

  • Auckland students will be entitled to 1 Learning Recognition Credit (LRC) for every 4 credits they achieve through assessment in the 2021 school year, rather than 1 LRC for every 5.
  • Auckland students will be eligible for up to 16 LRCs at NCEA Level 1, and 12 LRCs at levels 2 and 3.
  • The threshold for Auckland students to be awarded a Certificate Endorsement will be 44 credits at Merit or Excellence level, rather than the usual 50.

The changes to Course Endorsements and University Entrance announced on 2 September will continue to apply.

This means:

  • Auckland students will require 12 credits at Achieved, Merit or Excellence level to receive Course Endorsements, rather than 14.
  • To be awarded University Entrance, students in Auckland will need to achieve 12 – instead of 14 – credits in each of 3 University Entrance Approved Subjects, as well as attaining NCEA Level 3 and meeting the usual literacy and numeracy requirements.

And once again, we have been so impressed with the rate of engagement and I want to take this opportunity to thank family and whanau for their support throughout lockdown! I know it is complex and busy time for everyone!!

Be kind.
Stay safe.
Stay home.
Wear a mask if going out!
We got this team!!
