NCEA stands for National Certificate of Educational Achievement. NCEA is the most common qualification you will be working towards in Years 11 to 13
Level 1 = 80 Credits at any level, including literacy and numeracy NCEA is gained by building up credits for each standard in the course you are studying.
Most subjects offer between 18-24 credits. This means you have the opportunity if you were to pass every standard to get approximately 120 – 140 credits from all your subjects.
If you gain 50 credits at Excellence your NCEA will be endorsed with Excellence. If you gain 50 credits at Merit (or a mix of Merit and Excellence) your NCEA will be endorsed with Merit.
If in a single year you gain 14 or more credits at Merit and or Excellence for a course, you will gain endorsement in that course. At least 3 credits must be from externally assessed standards and 3 credits from internally assessed standards in that course. ** some exceptions apply (Religious Education and Physical Education)
You require 10 credits for numeracy 10 credits for literacy These are obtained primarily in English and Mathematics, but can also be obtained in some other subject areas.
Your school will enter you for NCEA and tell you when to finalise your entries and pay your fee of $75
There are two types of standards: Achievement standards (internally and externally assessed) Unit Standards – are internally assessed at school
Assessments measure your performance. Assessments can be internal (a test, activity or assignment) Assessments can be external. An end of year exam or portfolio. When you achieve a standard, you achieve credits for that standard.
