Announcement of NCEA and NZ Scholarship results release day

3 Dec 2019

Another year of NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship exams has ended, with the last exams being completed this afternoon.

“Around 140,000 students have attended 119 exam sessions across New Zealand, the Cook Islands and Niue over the last four weeks”, says NZQA Deputy Chief Executive Assessment, Kristine Kilkelly.

“Whānau, schools and exam centre staff have all played vital roles in supporting students through this important time of year.

“We wish students a relaxing summer after all of their hard work.”

Around 20,000 students from just over 200 schools entered to sit some of their exams online. This year we offered online exams for 14 subjects across NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3.

This was up from 6,700 students from 53 schools who sat three levels of English, Media Studies and Classical Studies in 2018.

NZQA will be further scaling up the range of subjects in 2020 to around two thirds of NCEA exams and we expect more schools and more students will be opting to sit their end of year exams using a digital device, rather than pen and paper.

NCEA results will be released online on 14 January 2020 and New Zealand Scholarship results will be released on 5 February 2020.

The secure Learner Login will be unavailable from 10 January until the results release on 14 January, to prepare for the release of results.

“We recommend students practice logging into the Learner Login before Christmas, so on the day results are released, they won’t be held back by trying to find their login details or reset their password.”

Students will be able to access their New Zealand Record of Achievement with their 2019 results through their Learner Login from 15 January 2020. They can also order certificates through their Learner Login.

Student exam answer booklets will be returned from late January, and digital exam booklets will be available digitally from late January until May.

Students can visit the Student page for more information about accessing results.
