Candidate Admission Slips and examination information

Schools must issue to all candidates a copy of their admission slip and the Instructions and Information for Candidates sheet.

Please inform the appropriate staff that boxes containing this information will be delivered to schools from 12 October 2015.

The boxes will contain the following for each candidate sitting an externally-assessed examination:

Candidate Admission Slips are sorted by candidate surname and also by any sort keys you may have provided with your school data, e.g. by form group. In some cases, the Candidate Admission Slip may be two pages. The admission slips are printed with a colour divider denoting the start of a new sort key. The sort key is printed on the divider in large font.

The admission slips are not in envelopes. When the admission slips are handed out please ask candidates to confirm that their entries and address are correct. The late entry process should be followed if entries are missing. If a change of address is required, please make the necessary changes by data file submission immediately. This will ensure any booklets/materials are sent to the appropriate address in January.

If candidates lose their admission slips, schools can print a copy from their NZQA login page (Reports, Exam Reports link) and this must be signed by the Principal’s Nominee. If late entries have been made, these will not show on their original Candidate Admission Slip.

Please note candidates can reprint their Candidate Admission Slip through their Learner login on the NZQA website and this must be signed by the Principal’s Nominee.
