Keeping track of NCEA achievement

Students are encouraged to keep track of their progress in NCEA each year. There are a range of ways to do this:

· Subject tracking sheets

· NCEA Level 1, 2 or 3 tracking sheets

· Asking their Dean, Learning Advisor or the Principal’s Nominee for an NCEA printout from KAMAR

· Visiting the NZQA student login facility. This requires the student’s National Student Number and an email address, and can be set up at school during Learning Advisory.
