NZQA Christ's College Framework

Derived grade applications

External Examinations

If a boy is unable to attend an external examination he must follow the steps below:

1. Notify the Principal’s Nominee

2. Download Derived grade form from NZQA website or email the school to request a copy

3. Present Derived Grade form and a medical document from an independent professional explaining reasons for missing the assessment. It is vital that the form is dated for the day of the examination (or as close as is feasible). This needs to be submitted to the Principal’s Nominee before the deadline

4. The Principal’s Nominee will then apply for the Derived Grade through the NZQA secure website. The form is kept securely by the Principal’s Nominee.

5. An estimated grade for externally assessed achievement standards will be derived from assessments that have taken place under valid exam-like conditions. Where there is no grade from practice assessments for an external standard because a student was absent or didn't complete an assessment no derived grade will be possible

6. Teachers are expected to provide valid assessment opportunities for Derived Grades for any content taught as part of the normal classroom curriculum.

7. Derived Grades are not available for Scholarship entries
