NCEA and NZ Scholarship exams end for 2022

2 Dec 2022

NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship exams for 2022 have come to an end this morning, with the last exams being for NCEA Level 1 Social Studies, Level 2 Dance, Level 3 Art History and New Zealand Scholarship Earth & Space Science.

“Around 142,000 students across New Zealand, the Cook Islands and Niue were entered for 134 exam sessions over the last four weeks”, says NZQA Deputy Chief Executive Assessment, Andrea Gray.

“More than 40,000 students completed one or more of their exams online, including more than 14,000 students sitting NCEA Level 1 English digitally on Thursday 17 November.”

“After all their hard work, I congratulate students and wish them a relaxing summer.”

“I also acknowledge whānau, teachers, schools and exam centre staff for the vital roles they play in supporting students.”

NCEA results will be released online on 17 January 2023 and New Zealand Scholarship results will be released on 8 February 2023.

“Students feeling nervous about their results, or concerned they may not achieve the credits they need, can find information and support on the NZQA website.”

“Students will also be able to see their assessed NCEA exam papers online from 24 January, rather than receiving them in the mail. NZ Scholarship papers will be available online from 9 February. This is the second year we are returning papers to students through their NCEA learner login, reducing the exam process’ environmental footprint and allowing students to more quickly view their responses.”

To prepare for the release of results, NZQA’s secure Student Login will be unavailable from 9 January until results are available on 17 January.

“We recommend students practise logging into the Student 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.”

“If students need help finding their National Student Number (NSN) to create their login, NZQA’s new chatbot ‘Awhina’ is available 24 hours a day to help. If Awhina is unable to resolve a query, students can call us on 0800 697 296 between 8am and 5pm Monday-Friday (9am-5pm Wednesdays),” Andrea Gray says.
