NCEA assessment policy

Our school assessment policy has been developed in line with NZQA requirements, incorporating the nationally agreed guidelines published by NZQA.

Please download the Mount Aspiring College assessment policy handbook. 

NZQA exam rules and procedures (Nov 6 - Nov 30 2023)

Please download the NZQA exam rules to find out what you need to do before an exam, what you need to bring to an exam, what you cannot bring to an exam, the rules you need to be aware of, and how to deal with problems if they arise. 

Special assessment conditions

Students can also apply for special assessment conditions if they can meet certain NZQA criteria. Students who may qualify for NZQA-approved assistance are identified at school and should have documentation submitted to support their case by the end of Year 10. Such assistance can take the form of a person to read or write assessments, access to separate accommodation, allocation of extra time, and the use of a computer and different-sized fonts for exam papers. Students entering MAC for the first time at Years 11, 12 or 13 must provide us with documentation from their previous school to support such an application.
