NCEA and Scholarship Exams
There will be an assembly on Wednesday 31st October – At this assembly there will be a presentation about NCEA exams and all NCEA students will receive their 2018 Exam Admission slips. If you miss this opportunity to receive your Exam Admission slip, you will need to get this prior to your exams starting from Mr Dyer.
Admission Slips: You must bring your admission slip and school ID card to each exam. You will not be permitted to enter the exam without them.
