Cambridge is an alternative qualification pathway. Many schools offer Cambridge in tandem with NCEA. The Cambridge qualification offers a pathway for motivated and high achieving students who are looking for extension beyond the traditional NCEA route. We would like our students to have this opportunity.
Cambridge qualifications offer a wide diversity of options and pathways, reflecting the need for individualised learning strategies.
Cambridge syllabuses and assessments aim to encourage independent learning, self-reliance, problem-solving and enquiry-based approaches to teaching and learning – not rote-learning the facts.
Cambridge’s international A and AS Levels are recognized by universities in NZ, Australia, Canada, UK (including Oxford and Cambridge) as well as throughout the European Union. In the USA they are accepted by all Ivy League universities (such as Harvard) and can earn students course credits up to one full year of credit.
We are conducting this survey to establish the level of interest among the community in making Cambridge available to students alongside NCEA.
Thank you for your participation.
