Biennial Review of the New Zealand Scholarship Subject List

Open for Consultation 10 May 2018 - 22 Jun 2018

NZQA is inviting feedback on the New Zealand Scholarship (Scholarship) Subject List for examination from 2019.

Every two years NZQA consults with the education sector and other interested groups about the subjects assessed in Scholarship to ensure that the list is relevant and meets the sector’s expectation.  NZQA is seeking feedback on subjects to be added or removed from the current Scholarship Subject List.

Subject identified for consideration for addition to the Scholarship Subject List

Based on strong feedback from the sector and other interest groups in 2016, NZQA would like to know whether Religious Studies should be considered for inclusion in Scholarship from 2019.

Subjects identified for consideration for exclusion from the Scholarship Subject List

Due to declining student numbers in Latin and Sculpture in recent years (23 and 27 in 2017 respectively), NZQA is concerned about the ongoing feasibility of maintaining these as Scholarship subjects. NZQA would like to know whether these subjects still meet the criteria for inclusion or if they should be considered for exclusion from Scholarship from 2019.

Actions sought

Please consider:

  • the current Scholarship Subject List and the proposed subject list, named Appendix D in the feedback document (DOCX, 79KB); and
  • the criteria for a subject to be included into the New Zealand Scholarship Subject List, named Appendix C in the feedback document (DOCX, 79KB); and
  • the suggested inclusion (Religious Studies) and exclusion (Latin, Sculpture); and
  • other senior secondary school subjects you believe meet the criteria and would like considered for inclusion, or no longer meet the criteria and would like considered for exclusion.

 We ask you to provide proposals and/or feedback comments to NZQA using the Scholarship feedback document (DOCX, 79KB), attached as Appendix B, by Friday 22 June 2018.

 Please direct any queries regarding this review to scholarshipsubjectreview2018@nzqa.govt.nz and one of our team will be in touch as soon as possible.
