Assessment Week October 14 - 21
Preliminary school exams for Year 11, 12 and 13 students begin on the Wednesday of the first week of Term 4.
Over the following week, all Year 11-13 students start each day with an assessment or examination at 8:40 am. This means senior students need to be at school by 8:40 a.m. on both Wednesdays also. Juniors start at the regular later Wednesday time.
These important practice exams are an integral part of senior students' learning and preparation for the external examinations held in November. They may also be used as the basis for a Derived Grade should a student be sick during externals or if elevated Covid levels result in external NCEA exams being cancelled.
As we tell students at school, 'Achievement is not down to innate brilliance. It comes from planning, preparation and perseverance'.
The Student Study Guide is a resource for your child to plan exam revision. It has been emailed to parents and students. Thank you for looking through this guide with your son or daughter.
The details of how the week runs and what students need to know are also in the guide which you can find on our NZQA Updates page here: NZQA UPDATES
