NZQA Scholarship Exams
NZQA New Zealand Scholarship Exams
NZ Scholarship exams provide recognition and monetary reward to top students in a subject. They are externally assessed exams run by NZQA and are designed to challenge the most capable Level 3 candidates. They are not a qualification and do not earn credits but they will appear on a student’s Record of Achievement. NZ Scholarships are awarded to approximately the top 3% of participating candidates in each subject.
Students will be identified as potential Scholarship candidates by their teachers based on their academic performance and potential in a subject, students may inquire whether they would be suitable for entry. Additional work and a study programme would be implemented to prepare for the exams.
