Reminder, students entered into internal or external NCEA standards must pay NZQA fees every year to have their results recorded on their Record of Achievement and to receive certificates. There are separate fee structures for domestic students and international students. The NZQA fee structure remains largely unchanged to previous years, however, a couple of years ago there was a change for students who are considering doing New Zealand scholarship exams and are not eligible for financial assistance. Each scholarship exam now incurs a $30 fee in addition to the $76.70 NCEA assessment fee.

Financial assistance is available for domestic students to help with the payment of entry fees. Financial
assistance is not available to international fee-paying students. Families who meet the financial assistance criteria based on income, benefit or multiple-candidate
applications will have the fee reduced. This fee will cover all NCEA and New Zealand scholarship exams.

Financial Assistance information is available on the NZQA website. A link to the Financial Assistance Application Form is also available on that webpage.
