Literacy requirements for University Entrance for 2012 and 2013

The literacy requirement for university entrance can be fulfilled in either English or Te Reo Māori and Te Reo Rangatira, but not a combination of both:

  • 4 credits at Level 2 or higher are required in Reading
  • 4 credits at Level 2 or higher are required in Writing.

Notes:

  1. Where standards count for either Reading or Writing, an individual student may not count credits for both Reading and Writing. Nevertheless, it is possible to split a standard to satisfy the requirement for at least 4 credits in Reading and at least 4 credits in Writing. For example, a student would fulfil the literacy requirement by achieving standards 90721, 90722, and 90723.
  2. The following will be recognised for the Waikato Certificate of Studies, English:
    • Certificate of Studies (CS) 2.1 and 3.1 can count for the university entrance Writing requirement.
    • Certificate of Studies (CS) 2.2 or 2.2 (i) and 3.2 can count for the Reading requirement.
