My family is planning to move to Brisbane year ending 2012 or 2013. Our daughter
is currently yr 12 (NZ) yr 11 (OZ) and is currently studying NCEA level 2.
Her NCEA level 1 was endorsed with Merit, 120 credits. We are wanting to know once
she has finished yr 12 (NCEA level 2)in NZ this year, and wants to xfer to OZ for
her last year 2013, what can Queensland high school do to xfer her qualification to
Australian equivalent.

Also, do the universities accept NCEA level 3 straight from NZ to enter university
in Australia, or do the NZ students need to do extra study?

NCEA Level 3 is recognised as broadly equivalent to Senior Secondary Certificates of Education in Australia (QCE in Queensland).

NCEA Level 3 results are used in the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank for entrance to all Australian universities.

When an application is received from a New Zealand school leaver, the Australian Tertiary Admission Centres contact NZQA directly. Results are sent from early January each year.

Q: We are wanting to know how the schools/universities work with transferring her NCEA Level 2 over to the Australian equivalent.

Do the authorities work out an equivalent for NZ Year 12 to continue with Australian Year 12 (NZ Year 13) without penalties or extra study time? Or would there be extra study to follow so she can enter university to study Bachelor of Education - Primary Degree?

A: NZ year 12 (NCEA Level 2) is only equivalent to Australian Year 11. The NZ equivalent to Australian Year 12 is Year 13, or NCEA Level 3. However, NCEA Level 2 can be transferred to the Australian education system, eg. QCE. Please visit Queensland Certificate of Education Legislative guidelines to see how NCEA Level 2 is recognised in QCE.

Quote:
Studies at National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) Level 2 and higher
Assumptions: the student has completed Year 11 in New Zealand (or its equivalent) and been awarded NCEA Level 1
Results for studies contributing to the award of a National Certificate of Education Achievement (NCEA) Level 2 can contribute up to 12 credits. Note that a person must complete 20 credits to be eligible for a QCE according to the QCE Legislative Guidelines.
Requirements: enrolled in Year 12, attempted at least one standard, and achieved at least one credit in a minimum of four subject areas at Level 2. Credits for fewer than four subjects will accrue on a pro-rata basis.

Up to six credits is possible for each semester of these studies, to a maximum of two semesters, provided the required standard in the nominated number of studies is met.
A further six credits may be possible for those students with evidence of continuing studies in school education, i.e. enrolled in Year 13 and attempted at least 1 standard and achieved at least 1 credit in one or more subject areas at Level 3. In the case of incomplete studies, these students must provide evidence of enrolment in these studies for at least one semester and an authenticated copy of an official interim result issued by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).
