NCEA results

As a secondary school student, you receive results for all internal or external standards that are assessed as part of your NCEA qualification. For more information, see Assessment of standards.

During the school year, you will receive results for internally assessed work which are sent by the school to NZQA.

At any stage, you can view the results NZQA holds for you using your Student login. Check out the guide to online results information.

External assessment results

From late January, you can access results of your externally assessed standards through your Student Login.

You have the right to request:

  • a review, if a processing error has occurred, or
  • a reconsideration, if you believe an error in marking has occurred.

For more information, see Reviews and reconsiderations. Please note that the application forms for reviews and reconsiderations aren't available via your student login until after marked exams are available to you.

Return of exam material

From late January 2022 both digital responses and scanned answer booklets for all NCEA exams and the NCEA Level 3 Visual Arts Result Card will be available online through the NZQA Student Login.

For detailed information about how and when NZQA sends material to schools and students, see Return of examination material.

NCEA certificate

Certificates for NCEA and University Entrance are printed on request and will be available from January. For more information on the qualification, see NCEA levels and certificates.

School Results Summary (SRS)

An SRS is an unofficial transcript of all results a student has gained for both internally and externally assessed standards while at secondary school, including those not achieved. It also lists any national qualifications, endorsements and awards gained while at school, and has a summary of credits by course and level.

You can print a copy of your SRS anytime, by:

  • logging into your NZQA Student Login
  • clicking on the pdf icon in the "My School Entries and Results" screen
  • printing the School Results Summary pdf.

For information on how NCEA results can be used for entrance to tertiary study or employment, see Using NCEA after leaving school.

Record of Achievement (RoA)

A NZ Record of Achievement is an official transcript of all the national qualifications and standards that a person has ever achieved. Any qualifications gained before the implementation of the National Qualifications Framework will not appear on the RoA.

You can order your RoA here.

NCEA results released to universities

In January, NZQA will make all NCEA level 2, level 3 and university entrance results (that have been authorised for release) available to New Zealand universities. This helps them to process pre-enrolments. Note: If you do not want this to happen, you must tell your school.
