Yesterday was the last day of the NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship examinations.
Over 143,000 students sat 120 exams over four weeks, NZQA deputy chief executive assessment Richard Thornton said.
“The examination process is a very large operation with a significant number of exam sessions taking place at schools across the country every day for a month. The success we have in running the exams reflects the support we get from schools and the well organised, efficient processes in place.
“All papers are currently being marked and the results entered by marking panels around the country. Marking will be completed by Christmas.”
Mr Thornton said all NCEA results would be available for students to access online from Wednesday, January 14, 2015. New Zealand Scholarship results are due out Tuesday, February 10, 2015.
“To allow for the loading of results and final system testing, the student Learner Login section of our website is going to be unavailable from Friday, January 9, 2015 through to Wednesday, January 14, 2015 in the lead-up to the release of results.
“Students should have a practice run using their Learner Login well before Christmas so that they are not held up on the day results are released by having to find login details or change passwords.”
From Thursday, January 15, 2015 (the day after results are released) all students who have paid their fees and completed NCEA or University Entrance will be able to order their certificates online. Answer booklets will be available for all candidates from late January.
