The National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is the main national qualification for secondary school students in New Zealand. Useful information about NCEA can be found at the links below.
Requests for an extension for an assessment may be granted at the discretion of the Principals Nominee Mrs Gibson, in consultation with subject teachers and Head of Learning Areas. The request must be filled before the due date for the assessment.
The circumstances below are some cases when applications may be declined:
