Last year’s results are not yet confirmed but our first summary is mostly positive:
NCEA Levels 1, 3 and UE have risen
Level 2 is down significantly. This is a concern as this is the accepted 'school leaving minimum qualification'
Compared to pre-Covid, Levels 1 and 2 are down; 3 and UE are up
Nationally (by decile) we are doing well in everything other than Level 2 this year
Endorsements vary significantly but aren't a major concern overall
Literacy and Numeracy are slightly up.
We’ll report more on this as the data is confirmed. Students who are “just short” of the required credits to pass a level should talk with their teacher or Dean about sitting further assessments soon as it is possible to add new grades for a few weeks yet.
