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.
