Monitoring and Marking Update

11 December 2005

Monitoring and Marking Update

The exams are over. The finals exams, Scholarship Mathematics with Calculus, German and Media Studies, were held on Saturday.

More than 135 thousand secondary school students have attended 114 different exam sessions at 409 exam centres since Monday 14 November.

The final week of Scholarship exams ran smoothly except for a few Wellington students who got stuck in traffic after a crash on the motorway on Tuesday morning on the way to their English exam.

"This was one of those rare instances when schools found a valuable use for students' cell phones. The schools were able to contact the stranded students and advise them to go to the nearest school to sit the exams," says Karen Sewell.

Nearly 40 percent of NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3 exams have now been marked.

Marking will be completed within the next two weeks, and results will be distributed to students between 26 and 28 January.

"The monitoring and marking process is proceeding as expected. The additional monitoring processes in place this year enable the panel leaders, markers and the Qualifications Authority to identify any results which are unexpected, and investigate possible reasons. This process has resulted in the remarking of 12 standards to date.

The standards remarked so far are:

Subject and Standard Number Credit Values
English level 1 – 90054 - 2 credits
English level 1 – 90057 - 3 credits
English level 2 – 90380 - 3 credits
Economics level 1 – 90198 - 5 credits
Maths level 1 – 90152 - 2 credits
Maths level 3 – 90636 - 6 credits
Maths level 3 – 90635 - 6 credits
Japanese level 1 – 90102 - 6 credits
Drama level 3 – 90612 - 4 credits
Classics level 2– 90247 - 5 credits
Accounting level 2– 90224 - 5 credits
English level 3 - 90724 - 3 credits

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
