(It is important to note that these LRCs are stand alone and do not count towards, numeracy, literacy, course endorsements or UE.)

To receive a Certificate Endorsement, students will need 46 credits at Merit or Excellence level, instead of the usual 50.

To be awarded University Entrance, students will now need 14 credits in each of two UE Approved Subjects, and 12 credits in a third UE Approved Subject (they will also need to attain NCEA Level 3 and meet the regular literacy and numeracy requirements).

Additionally, submission dates for the listed externally assessed portfolios have been moved back one week:

  • Technology (NCEA Levels 1-3 and NZ Scholarship)
  • Design and Visual Communication (NCEA Levels 1-3 and NZ Scholarship)
