NCEA – find your way through the online information

New Zealand's National Certificates of Educational Achievement (NCEA) are national qualifications for senior secondary school students.

It can be tricky to find exactly what you need on the NCEA webpages, so we hope to make it clearer for you. Remember to bookmark pages you will use often.

These key websites provide information about NCEA assessment:

The NCEA on NZQA pages contain all of the information you will need for external assessments, plus some on internal assessments. 

The NCEA on TKI pages contain important exemplar information on internal assessments.

As well as the key sites detailed above, the following websites may be of use:
