Remember just turn up, no bookings required!

Differences between NCEA and University (Feb 2015)

NCEA University
Students can pick and choose assessments (A la carte) within courses Assessment is almost always compulsory and you need to do all assessments to pass
Lots of teacher support Less teacher/lecturer support (but it is there!)
NCEA Achievement Standards break subjects into discrete parts for assessment Holistic assessment is common, need to know the whole course
Grades are Achieved; Merit; Excellence % based assessment; A-E grades
Writing is often instrumental to pass a standard Academic writing can be more about developing a critical, creative argument, not reaching a standard.
Students can re-sit assessments No re-sits
