NCEA – Student Progress
We are now entering the business end of the year for our NCEA students. All students should now have gained credits through the internally assessed component of their courses. Students have been given their National Student Numbers (NSN) by their Deans towards the end of last term. This should allow them to set up their account to log in to the NZQA website. On the NZQA website students can check on their progress, find out how they are faring in relation to course endorsements and overall certificate endorsements, check their examination timetable, and request copies of their qualifications to date. The following links may be useful in finding out about NCEA:
The Aquinas College Options Evening is occurring on:
Date: Tuesday 15th August
Time: 7:00pm till 9:00pm
Venue: School Administration Block
The night has been scheduled in order to allow parents and students the chance to discuss potential subjects with subject specialists at Aquinas College. It is a valuable opportunity to gain their opinion on which subjects will best suit your child into the future. Mr Mike Smith, the Careers Advisor at Aquinas College will also be available to meet with parents. In addition, there will be advisors from Waikato University, Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology, and Bethlehem Tertiary Institute available to discuss future study pathways.
If you have a child who will be in Year 10 or above in 2018 then you should consider attending this evening. Once again student option selections will be completed online this year. Please note the following:

Senior Derived Grades Assessments
The school Derived Grades Examinations are scheduled for week 9 of this term (starting Monday 18th September). These examinations are used by some subjects as a way of determining top in subject and as an indicator of how a student is likely to perform in their final NCEA externally assessed examinations. Please note this week in your diary.
