  12. Some questions you might have

  13. When are the exams? • They start on 11th November and run through weekends and alongside NCEA Level 3 • NCEA Level 3 and Scholarship finish on the 1 December • Where there is a clash it may be possible to shift a Level 3 exam the same day, but not a Scholarship exam

  14. How many people get a Scholarship in a subject? • The number of Scholarships is based on the number of students studying Level 3 in that subject • Each subject has about the same percentage of Scholarships, but this has a level of tolerance • Marking is based on standards based assessment, then by determining the students who have reached the standard most “evidently”

  15. What is the support I can expect at school. • Each department has set up different ways of supporting Scholarship candidates: eg knowledgenet, tutorials, additional assignment materials • The expectation is that students will be self motivated and proactive • From Term 2 a regular series of meetings will be established for mutual support and requests for particular help

  16. How do the results of Scholarship affect my entrance to university? • Not at all –entrance to University is based on my NCEA Level 3 results. Scholarship provides recognition and reward to top students ; it is not an entrance qualification

  17. Questions to ponder: • What are my reasons for considering doing Scholarship? • Do I have a reasonable chance of success? • Am I committed to the exams and to the various school support programmes? • Is it going to disadvantage my other Level 3 results? • I’m going to go for it with commitment, enthusiasm, passion and hard work    
