Derived grade examinations will take place in Week 9 for students sitting external assessments. If a student is not able to sit the real exam in November it is the results from the Derived Grade Exam week that we use to determine what grade a student is awarded. This is either via the derived or emergency grade process, visit the NZQA website for more information about this: https://www.nzqa.govt.nz/
We also use the results from the derived grade exams, as well as other internal achievements, to help us award major prizes for senior prize-giving. We therefore ask whanau to support us in supporting our students to be in the best position possible when they sit their exams.
If you have any questions regarding exams please contact Miss Kimberley Mahy for more information. Kimberley Mahy Wairoa College Assistant Principal Principal's Nominee 06 838 8303 0277225154
