Why is ncea best

Why is NCEA best?

Independent research has shown that if you do well in NCEA, you are likely to do well in your first year at university.

“We find that the students who get the Excellences really optimize their learning; and when we follow those students who get Excellence in the NCEA into university they do the very best in their tertiary qualifications.”

John Hattie, university of Auckland


A guide to ncea national certificate of educational achievement

“I’ve employed a lot of young people over the last couple of years and reading through their papers and credits you do get a good indication of where they’re at. NCEA tells you a bit more about the person; if they’re hands-on or computer skilled or good at fault finding.”

Jud Dwyer, Manager at Westland Milk Products


A guide to ncea national certificate of educational achievement

“The transition from school to uni was very smooth. Under NCEA, you’re working hard all through the year, so you’re always aware of your assessments you’ve got at the moment, and then the next ones. You’ve got a plan and you know that there’s more coming, which is quite similar to uni, where you know when your assessments are and when they’re due.”

Olivia Burt, student at Auckland University
