NCEA Exams

NCEA exams have been postponed by two weeks. They will now begin on Monday 22 November and finish on Tuesday 14 December. This will allow two more weeks of classroom/teaching time. Due dates for portfolio submissions will also be pushed back by two weeks.

The NCEA Level 1 Mathematics Common Assessment Task (MCAT) has also been delayed for two weeks – to 28 or 30 September. At this stage, the dates for DigiCATs remain 20 Sept – 1 October and 18 – 27 October.

The postponement of exams will mean a later finishing date for our Senior students, and we will have more information on that nearer the time.
