NZQA Christ's College Booklet

Derived grade applications

External Examinations

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

1. Notify the Assistant Principal Curriculum

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/certificate is dated for the day of the examination. This needs to be submitted to the Assistant Principal Curriculum before the deadline date ● This form is then forwarded to NZQA following determination of the grade to be awarded to the student; this must be based on standard specific evidence ● 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, whether that is because a student was absent or didn't complete an assessment, or because the timing of the teaching has meant no practice assessment was given, no derived grade will be possible

● Derived Grades are not available for Scholarship entries
