What's in the exam?

Each year NZQA give us a rough guide as to what will be assessed in the final exam. Always check this against the Achievement Standards, as this will give you more indepth information about what the examiner is looking for. The assessment specification informs us of the exam's focus. Make sure you discuss this with your teacher.

Past Exams

Past examination papers and examiners reports are avalible on the NZQA website. The PDF fiels are the best to download, however due to copyright, not all the resources will necessarily download. Ask your teacher for past exams if this occurs. Use the examiner's report to check your answers.
