    You need 80 Credits at Level 1, 60 At level 2 & 3. Those 20 of those 80 credits from NCEA Level 1 carry over to Level 2.

    To guarantee you get into the selected subject, To pass the subject you need at least 14 or 16(?). If you get less than 14/16, It doesn't necessarily mean you won't get into it.

    What subjects are you taking by the way? Or plan to take next year?
    I am planning on taking Histroy,Tourism,Geography,Englihs,Maths Applied,Health.


    Abo, i haven't heard of anyone staying in year 11 just because he hasen't got 80 credits, but my real worry is to NOT repeat a lot of level 1 subjects. I don't know how you guys get 190 credits, because the maximum you can get in Level 1 is 130 and that's if you pass every internal and every external you get.

    If I remember correctly you need 80 credits to pass NCEA 1
    And you need 14 credits in each subject to pass that subject. So you need 14 credit in NCEA 1 geo to do level 2 geo. Though this isn't always the case, I did geo in level 1 then picked it up in level 3 without doing level 2. Teacher make exceptions like these if they think you can handle the workload etc just generally just have to not be a retard lol
    So if you got 14 credits in each subject you would end up with 84 credit overall and thus pass level 1.

    Side note: Don't know how people end up with 190+ credits. I passed everything and only ended up with 130, guess some schools are lenient with how many standards they allow students to do.
    For us it was usually 6-7 papers with an average credit rating of 3-4 i guess.

    EDIT: not all subject require the same i think, for comp sci level 2 you needed 5 excellence papers in math 1 to do it lol.

    I knew people that didn't get level 1 but they moved on to level 2 subjects. However some did stay behind in some classes like English/Maths because going up a level without doing well in the year prior will be too hard.

    Goodluck.
    Protip for year13: Do computer studies, you can bang out like 40credits in your free time if you ask to do the assessments that were not covered in class. brb make a powerpoint and get 5credits

    I attained NCEA level 2 without turning up to most classes. I didn't do any homework at all from year 7-12, if I couldn't do it in the classroom I wouldn't attempt it. Wish I put more effort into it though. Uni was quite tough especially learning calculus for the first time and 2nd year mathematical statistics was a real bitch because I lacked the building blocks of statistics.

    Yes, but your teachers always try to make you paranoid about failing so you get scared and work harder.

    Um, having a work ethic (even if it's for an arbitrary and kind of shitty goal) is very important.

    The level 1 NCEA standards changed last year, these days most subjects offer less credits than they do as a result. Schools should be offering about 20 credits per course, meaning 6 subjects should now offer a total of 120 credits.

    OP you need to look at the entry requirements for all of the subjects you intend to do next year and try and meet these. Then you won't be stuck repeating or filling your timetable with stuff you aren't interested. If you don't get level 1 this year your level 2 credits can be counted down, so you'll end getting it sometime next year. Assuming you don't slack off all over again..

    OP, if you can't even grasp the importance of paragraphs, you'll probably still pass NCEA. That's how retarded it is. Just get extra credits for picking up litter.

    I think your basic subjects you will just be able to go and do level 2, but maths for example you won't be able to move on until you complete level 1 maths afaik

    If you can't pass NCEA level 1 without trying you're ****ed.

    My advice: leave school in 6th form and take on a trade like plumbing etc.

    I thought it was designed so no-one could fail.

    School Cert, 6th form Grading 1-9 and Bursary were the 'You pass or you fail' times. NCEA is the 'everyone passes but you're better than normal' time.

    If you're not part of the everyone passes.... well i just don't know..... :|

    *Edit* i know there was a name for sixth form, but its totally slipt my mind, cut me some slack it was over 10 years ago!

    Only got 8 credits at Level 1 English, still got into Level 2 English and eventually got Merits at English at Lvl 3.


    Still failed Level 3 in the end.



    Still got into uni, getting A's, so I don't understand how NCEA really worked, it certainly didn't reflect my actual intelligence

    Watch the video, ask a teacher. (Your Form teacher or Learning Advisor or whatever your school calls it.)

    http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualificatio...ow-ncea-works/

    Short version: You need 80 at any level to get NCEA L1. For most people, this means they can get 60 at L1, and 20 at L2. (60+20=80, in case you're not getting those L1 maths credits).

    Most schools require you to have a certain number of credits in a subject at L1 to do the subject at the next level; it's not an NZQA requirement, just the schools, but is common sense. If you're flubbing L1 geography (NOTE THE SPELLING - COMPARE WITH YOUR POST; IS ENGLISH ONE OF THE SUBJECTS YOU'RE FAILING? JESUS!), the school would be irresponsible to let you into L2 geo, as you'd have no hope of passing it.

    I wagged half of 5th form and did absolutely zero work the other half and i still passed. NCEA is easy, but also annoying and stupid. Not even teachers understand how it works. Bring back School Cert tbh.
