If i read an article on the NZQA website correctly, the results will be on the web AFTER they have been delivered.
We get our mail at around midday, but my results will be directed to another address which I will check later on.
I think I have the right to be nervous haha.

Good luck to everybody who is waiting for their's. If it is any help, some of the greatest minds in industry today actually dropped out of college to go an persue their dreas, some of them never even went to college.

Sir James Flectcher of Fletcher Construction
Bill Gates and co of Microsoft
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak of Apple Computer and a whole bunch of others who have helped shape the world we live in today.

I agree. As an employer, I don't understand the NCEA grading system, so could never , and will never employ anyone straight out of school based on this. I will now only look at uni results, as they use a clear A-F grading system.

This is no good... only 51 Excellence credits. What's the GPA for your best 80 credits, noone? Mine is 291 out of a possible of 320. :(

Yippiiie! I got into Biomedical Science and Computer Science in Auckland University! Woooooooohoooooooooo!

This is farking awesome.

School is bullocks

James, how do you work out the GPA?

noone
17-01-2007, 04:33 PM
Ok

Just figured out the Ndeva auckland system, Ive been approved to all my programmes :

Health Sciences
Enginerring
Conjoint Engineering / Law
Conjoint Engineering/ Commerce

Atm it looks like i will do the last one.

Marks Wise , 0% Not Achieved , 0% Achieved , 45% Excellence , 65% Merit.

Renmoo
17-01-2007, 04:57 PM
Hi noone. Basically, Universities will rank you according to your best 80 credits over a maximum of 5 subjects. For each credit of Excellence, it carries a value of "4". So this means that the maximum GPA that you can get is 320 (80 x 4 = 320). If you get Merit, multiply it by "3"; Achieved, "2". If you get not-achieved, you multiple nothing.

For my case, I have got 51 E credits, so I multiply it by 4, which gives me 204. Besides this, I have scored plentiful of Merit credits as well, but I am taking only 29 since the maximum is 80. As such, I multiple 29 by 3, which gives me 87. Add 204 and 87, I got 291. Since the maximum is 320, therefore by dividing 291 with 320 and multiply it by 100%, I got 91%. :D

In total, I have got 51 E credits, 32 M credits, 27 A credits; I have lost 10 credits due to reasons like not-achieved and standards being removed.

How about you, TEOR? :D

Cheers :)

I mean, 45% E, 55% M

fark!

so they have already decided who does/doesn't get into engineering? i'm afraid to look... i know, you don't go so i can :D

maybe i should pretend i'm maori (actually would increase my chances of acceptance)

EDIT, my NCEA results were OK, but ndeva says my applicatation staus is still "application", i think that means they aren't sure yet

it's not hard if you actually try to understand it rather than just downing it off the bat.

the whole system is a bit complicated, simply getting your top 80 credits, multiplying and then finding a percentage is a pretty easy way to get yout GPA really (albeit not as simple as averaging results)

[quote]maybe i should pretend i'm maori (actually would increase my chances of acceptance)[quote]

Im not sure for the engineering department but i know for medical, that they have a quota of like 15% Maori/Pacific Islander students, so even if you rank nowhere in terms of mark base acceptance if you are maori/PI then they have to let you in... and apparently its only 1/16 maori.

for engineering there is 550 spots, or 525 if you're not maori/PI

(25 seats reserved for maori/pi)


argh! my friend got into engineering, but i still haven't even heard a no, let alone a yes :(

now HOW THE F**K do you do the class selection worksheet?

honestly, they only ever tell you half of what you need to know, fine if you've done it once before, but if you're new it's bloody hopeless
