NCEA Exams

NCEA End of Year Exams 2023

Senior students (Years 11 - 13) will sit exams from Monday 6 November to Thursday 30 November. Study leave will begin on Monday 30 October for students to prepare for their exams. We encourage all parents and caregivers to ensure their children are taking these exams seriously and making the most of the study time provided to prepare for their exams.

It is important that you watch this short video which explains our expectations and how the end of year NCEA Exams 2023 will take place:

Each day, exam venues will be advertised on the exam notice boards outside the Theatre and G25.

Students must be at their exam room by 9am for morning exams and 1.30pm for afternoon exams.




Buses During Exams

Buses run at normal times during exams. Students finishing early or late will need to find an alternative way home.

NZQA Logins

All senior students have received instructions on how to log into NZQA. They must log in to:

  • Complete their digital exams.

  • Check their final results in January 2024.

All NCEA students must have a functioning login to NZQA. These logins are managed by NZQA, not by the college.

Derived Grades

Derived grades can only be applied for in the event of an absence or negatively impacted performance during an exam due to legitimate reasons such as:

  • Serious Illness or pandemic

  • Family bereavement

  • Significant injury or trauma at the time immediately before or during exams that may impede their ability to complete any or all exams


The student or their whānau must apply for a derived grade and submit the completed application to Mr Doubleday no later than 14 days after the last affected exam. It will then be uploaded to NZQA for consideration. 

In the event of another lockdown-type situation or natural disaster, the derived grades will be applied automatically by the school. Students will not need to apply. 

If you have any questions about specific assessments, please contact your child’s teacher.
