NCEA is New Zealand's National Certificate of Educational Achievement

NCEA is a flexible and internationally well-recognised qualification, consisting of both internal assessments and external assessments to cater for different learning styles. Students sitting NCEA are assessed throughout the year with assignments, practical assessments, presentations, examinations, and project work.

It is possible to gain NCEA in two years, however, usually students gain credits in their last three years of school (Years 11, 12 and 13). All students who are at Rangitoto College from February to December (one full academic year) will be required to sit NCEA exams at the end of the year. The NCEA exam fees ($400) are already included in the tuition fee and are paid by the school.

NCEA Subjects

At Rangitoto College, students can choose many of the subjects they study and their choices will depend on their goals. We always encourage them to choose subjects they are interested in and subjects that are a prerequisite for a specific tertiary or vocational pathway.
