University and NCEA

“To gain admission to university you’ll need enough credits to gain University Entrance. This means more than just getting NCEA Level 3. To get UE you need NCEA Level 3 as well as 14 credits each in three approved subjects, 10 Literacy credits at level 2 or above, and 10 Numeracy credit at level 1 or above. I advise you to check with your school to make sure that you are taking a mix of subjects and achievement standards that will allow you to get UE. It’s also important to know that some universities have higher entry standards than UE to gain admission. And some subjects will have special admission criteria. So talk to the university or check their website.”  (read more)
