1 Year Subject Selection

2 Your course selection  You have to take six subjects  Most subjects will have about 20 – 25 credits available in it.  Most students will be taking all Level 2 subjects some may be taking a combination of Level 1 and possibly Level 3 subjects.  Your course choice for the core subjects should follow your subject teachers recommendations.  If you have not passed the subject at Level 1 you will have to still pass the required standards at this level before progressing to Level 2.

3 Your course selection  Some courses will have a mixture of internally assessed and external end of year exams.  Some will only have internal assessments.  YOUR SELECTION IS IMPORTANT AND WILL DECIDE WHAT YOU CAN DO IN THE FUTURE –for Year 13 subjects and many tertiary courses.  The school also offers the Trade Academy and Gateway (this will be spoken about after this presentation)

4 Vocational Pathways  Vocational Pathway is a guide  6 main sectors  Achievement standards are linked to relevant sectors  NZQA login  profile builder  Those students working towards a specific career or industry sector can include the majority of their subjects from that sector

5 Vocational Pathway 1.Construction and Infrastructure 2.Manufacturing and Technology 3.Creative Industries 4.Primary Industries 5.Service Industries 6.Social and Community Services

6 To pass NCEA Level 2  You require a minimum of eighty credits, 60 at Level 2 or above.  There is no specific English or Maths requirement to pass but students are expected to take both English and Maths in Y12.

7  To achieve course endorsements at merit or excellence level students must pass a minimum of 14 credits at the level. At least 3 of the 14 credits must be either internal or external.  For overall Level merit or excellence endorsements 50 credits at that level or higher are required across all subjects.

8 University Entrance Requirements  For University Entrance in 2014, Literacy - 10 credits at Level 2 or above made up of:10 credits at Level 2 or above  5 credits in reading  5 credits in writing

9 UE requirements  Numeracy - 10 credits at Level 1 or above, made up of:10 credits at Level 1 or above  achievement standards – specified achievement standards available through a range of subjects, or  unit standards - package of three numeracy unit standards (26623, 26626, all three required).

10 University Entrance requirements  For both UE literacy and Numeracy these credits can be from selected courses in a range of subjects.  For example The PE course below will contribute to 4 reading credits but no writing credits Physical Education 3.5 Examine a current physical activity event, trend, or issue and its impact on New Zealand society. 4INYN

11 Special Note  Many Universities are now placing minimum entry requirements in excess of the general UE criteria  Eg Auckland University require a minimum of 17 Level 2 English credits.  In addition many Universities are basing scholarship awards on Level 2 results.

12 Your selection should be chosen because:  It is required for your career  It is required for your Year 13 subjects  It is needed for your university, polytechnic or training courses  If you do not know what you are going to do in the future – you should select a range of different subjects to keep your options open.

13 Our Expectations…  Students should be aiming to achieve at least 120 credits, including Level 2 and subject endorsements.  To achieve this students will need to:  attend school regularly (90% or higher )  to apply themselves consistently throughout the year.  Be role models for the junior school through responsible behaviour and following the school codes.

14  School leadership  We will be encouraging students to be involved in a wide range of school co- curricular and possibly community activities.  This is an important year for students to be developing and demonstrating the qualities required for school leadership in 2016.
