Ordering result documents
The ‘My School Entries and Results’ screen will be updated with internal results as they become available during the year. External results will be available online from mid January.
As your results are updated regularly NZQA recommends that you choose carefully when ordering copies of your documents. If you require additional copies there may be a charge.
What can I order?
Record of Achievement (RoA)
You are entitled to one free RoA each year (if you had results in the previous year). Any more copies will cost $15.30 each. You can order online.
NCEA and University Entrance Certificates
You are entitled to one free NCEA certificate at each level and one free UE certificate (provided you have paid the relevant NCEA fee). Any more copies will cost $15.30 each. You can order online.
There is a charge of $15.30 for each certificate reprint. You can order online.
What should I do if I apply for a review or reconsideration?
If you are going to apply for a review or reconsideration please do not order your result documents until the review or reconsideration process has been completed.
If you have applied for a review or reconsideration for University Entrance please let your chosen university know as it can take up to four weeks for your updated results to become available.
Read more about reviews and reconsiderations.
What can’t I do online?
- Apply for a review. A form will be available through your learner login.
- Apply for an overseas admission. Contact Secondary Data Management for more information.
Results available to others
All the details shown on your SRS and RoA are sent to your school automatically.
New Zealand universities are able to access your records if you have allowed your results to be released to tertiary institutions. You can confirm this by checking in the 'My Enrolments' area of the learner login. If 'Results to Tertiary Institutions' is yes, New Zealand universities have access to your results.
Contact Secondary Data Management if you wish to make changes to your tertiary release status.
If you are planning to study at an overseas tertiary institution, contact the institution as early as possible to find out what results information you need to provide.
Australian universities will contact NZQA directly to obtain your results.
If you are an international fee paying student, you can download your ORN from the 'Order documents' section of the learner login. The ORN contains a summary of credits by subject in PDF format.
Since 2013, the ORN has contained the Abitur score for German international fee paying students.
Sending your results directly from NZQA to your university
Some tertiary institutions require your result notices directly from NZQA. Contact Secondary Data Management for more information relating to the overseas admission process.
If the tertiary institution to which you are planning to study does not directly recognise NCEA results, NZQA may be able to provide an estimate of your overall and subject performance in the form of a GPA letter. This is subject to there being sufficient credits assessed during the year.
For more information regarding the GPA process contact Psychometrics, Reporting and Statistics.
Offers of places at universities are entirely at the universities discretion.
If the tertiary insitution to which you are applying requires authentication of your NZQA result notices, refer to the Department of Internal Affairs website for information relating to document authentication.
Some institutions also require the secondary school to authenticate these documents or provide a school leaving letter or certificate.
