There are certain subjects at Level Three, in which students — principally in Year 13 — have an opportunity to win scholarship. Scholarship is a monetary award designed to recognize New Zealand’s top students in subjects. Gaining a scholarship does not give a student any more credits, nor does it count towards their NCEA or any other qualification. But if a scholarship is gained it will be stated on a student’s record of learning.

Scholarship is an external assessment in NZ education that assesses secondary school students against challenging standards, and will be demanding for the most able students in each subject.

“Scholarship students will again be expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalization, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding and ideas to complex situations.”
