NOTE:    Credit totals must be achieved through a combination of external and internal Unit or Achievement Standards. Students who do not have the recognised New Zealand prerequisites must be prepared to submit/perform work at appropriate standard.

The minimum literacy requirement for University Entrance is 10 reading and writing credits at NCEA Level 2 or Level 3 (5 credits in reading and 5 credits in writing).  Some Level 2 and 3 achievement standards across a range of courses contribute to the University Entrance requirement.  Some standards contribute only to reading or only to writing.  Some standards can contribute to both (depending on where the need is, but not to both reading and writing at the same time).  Please talk to the HOLA of the relevant course for the most up-to-date advice or to Mr McAllen, Deputy Principal ? responsibility for literacy.
