“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.
