Understanding the subject layout

Tim Grocott —

Please read this section before looking at each individual course.

Approximate Contributions

This section is included for those subjects which have contributions (other than stationery) associated with them. These contributions are estimates of expected expenses and are included to enable this factor to be considered. 

Recommended Entry Criteria

This indicates the level of knowledge or qualification needed to tackle this course with a reasonable chance of success.

Students who have not reached the recommended entry criteria should discuss their course with the contact person whose name is listed in the subject they wish to take. In some cases exceptions can be made after consultation and approval through the appropriate mechanism. Very few exemptions are approved as experience tells us students are unlikely to succeed in this situation.

Exemptions are applied for on course interview day at the beginning of the 2019 school year after NCEA results are obtained.
