2017 NCEA Digital Pilot examinations

07 Feb 2018

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has become aware of some results from the 2017 NCEA Digital Pilot examinations where no marks have been allocated.

The 2017 Digital pilot examinations were in Classical Studies, English, and Media Studies, at Level 1 and Level 2.

Our quality assurance process included checking the marking of a randomly selected sample of digital examination entries. These were check marked by a senior marker and no incomplete results were identified through this process.

NZQA is reviewing any such results and, where marks should have been allocated, the students’ record will be updated within the next few days. 

NZQA is contacting the relevant schools today and is looking into how this occurred.

NZQA has systems in place to ensure no student is disadvantaged and encourages students who have an unexpected N0 (zero) result in their 2017 Digital Pilot examinations to speak with their teachers in the first instance.
