Special assessment conditions

NZQA grants entitlement to Special Assessment Conditions (SAC) so that approved candidates may be fairly assessed and have access to assessment for National Qualifications. Special Assessment Conditions are approved so that entitled candidates can demonstrate their knowledge, skills and understanding, without providing unfair advantage over other candidates.

Applications are made by schools on the behalf of candidates. Entitlement for SAC is required for both internal and external NCEA assessments.
