Clarification of 2015 Assessment Specifications for New Zealand Scholarship Accounting

Assessment specifications provide the assessment parameters for each externally assessed standard. They should be read alongside the applicable standards. These were published in December 2014.

Further clarification of assessment specifications

Teachers will not need to alter their teaching programmes or the preparation of candidates for the examination as a result of this update. Unchanged and indicated under the heading Special Notes, candidates should be familiar with the following (bullet points 2 and 3):
