“New Zealand Scholarship assessments enable candidates to be assessed against challenging standards and are demanding for the most able candidates in each subject. Assessment is by either a written/spoken examination or by the submission of a portfolio or report of work produced throughout the year.
Scholarship candidates are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding, and ideas to complex situations.
New Zealand Scholarship provides recognition and monetary reward to top students in their last year of schooling.” NZQA
A special mention needs to made of Leo, Veronica, Hollie, Carys and Zara who achieved scholarship while still in year 12!
