15 November update regarding flooding

Updated at 12:00pm

We are aware of issues of flooding in the lower North Island and expect that they will affect some NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship examinations this afternoon.

If students are unable to attend an NCEA examination because their school is affected by flooding or they are unable to safely travel, the same derived grade process advised for yesterday’s earthquakes will apply.

New Zealand Scholarship students affected by flooding, should contact their school ASAP. We are working with schools to make alternative arrangements for these students and ensure they are not disadvantaged. 

Students in areas where schools are open and travel has not been affected are advised to proceed as normal with their examinations.

Students must apply for derived grades through their schools, so if you have any questions or concerns regarding derived grades, please contact your school directly to discuss it.
