The 2023 cohort of Year 11–13 NCEA students demonstrated strong commitment to academic excellence as evidenced by the recently released NCEA results.

In all three levels, students showed improvements in pass rates compared to the previous year. On top of this, the percentage of students passing with a higher endorsement surpassed 70% at all levels. These achievements are qualifiers for students to receive a prestigious Saint Kentigern Academic Colours or Honours – a school award for recognition of academic excellence.

Our results, barring completion of final recounts and remarks, are as follows:

Level 1 NCEA

At Level 1 (Year 11), up from last year 98.8% of all our students gained their NCEA Level 1 certificate. This is an impressive 415 out of 420 students. Of these, 40.96% achieved the highest level of Excellence Endorsement and 44.82% attained Merit Endorsement. Therefore, 86% of our students achieved Level 1 with an Excellence or Merit Endorsement.

Level 2 NCEA

Our Level 2 (Year 12) students also improved from last year’s scores with 99.29% pass rate –  279 out of 281 total students. The cohort had 31.54% achieve their certificate with an Excellence Endorsement and 47.67% with a Merit Endorsement. 79% of our students achieved Level 2 with an Excellence or Merit Endorsement.

Level 3 NCEA

Finally, 97.84% of our 2023 Year 13 students received their NCEA Level 3 certificates improving on 2022’s results by over a percentage point. 272 out of 278 students received their qualification. Additionally, 21.94% achieved Excellence Endorsed and 48.2% achieved a Merit Endorsement. Therefore, 70% of our students achieved Level 3 with an Excellence or Merit Endorsement. The University Entrance rate for the year stands at 91%.

Congratulations to all our students on their determination, dedication, and achievements. The statistics we see are the culmination of everyday commitment to be better, with eyes firmly set on accomplishing academic goals.
