Trains Strike Thursday 16 November 2017

Message sent from NZQA in regards to the Train strike tomorrow 16 November 2017

  • Students who cannot get to their exam centre will not get a Derived grade
  • Emergency grades do not apply in this situation
  • The latest time a student can gain entry into the exam centre/school is 30 minutes after the start of the exam (ie 10am and 2.30pm)
  • A student can sit the exam at another school if the school can manage the extra numbers. (If you intend to do this I would suggest you contact the school you intend to do the exam with today and ask if this is possible)
  • SAC candidates cannot be accommodated by other schools
  • If you do intend to do the exam at another school you MUST  have photo ID. An admission slip is helpful but not compulsory
  • If the student does not have an admission slip, they will be provided with the papers they believe they are sitting. NZQA will sort out entry issues with their school afterwards.
