2022 NCEA Registration
If you are studying NCEA courses with us this year and wish to register for externally assessed standards, you will need to submit a NCEA registration.
If you are not sure if you should register, or which standards to register for, just ask your subject teacher.
If you were previously enrolled with another secondary school this year, you will need to re-register for any externally assessed standards through Te Kura.
If you are studying at a secondary school as well as Te Kura, your own school is responsible for registering you for the externally assessed standards for your Te Kura courses.

Externally assessed standards include:
- End of year NCEA and NZ Scholarship exams sat from 7 November to 2 December
- MCAT (Level 1 Maths Common Assessment Task for 91027) sat on 13 September
- DCAT (Digital Technologies Common Assessment Tasks) sat on 27 October
- Portfolio submissions for Design and Visual Communications, Technology, Visual Arts, NZ Scholarship Music, and NZ Scholarship Physical Education
Important to know
- Submit your registration well before the deadline specified in your NCEA Registration email.
- If registering for end of year exams, you will need to ask a local secondary school if you can sit your exams there. We’ll email who you need to contact after you submit your registration. We’ll also send a link to that school so they can provide their decision via our online facility. Te Kura should have approval from your nominated exam centre school before the deadline specified in your NCEA Registration email.
- If registering for the MCAT and/or DCAT
- 25 July is the final date you can register for the MCAT and/or DCAT. Because you can only submit one registration, if you wish to register for any other externally assessed standards, you must include these when registering for the MCAT and/or DCAT.
- Te Kura sets up special venues for these exams and details will be sent to the email address you provide in your registration closer to the exam date.
- NCEA practice exams (sat from 5 to 9 September) must be supervised by a non-family member if you wish to be eligible for derived grades.
- Supervision may be available at local huinga ako (advisories) - check with your kaimanaaki (learning advisor) for availability in your area.
- Complete this form before mid-day 23 August to identify a non-family member to supervise your NCEA practice exams.
- You do not need to submit a NCEA registration if you do not wish to register for any externally assessed standards, or your courses do not offer any externally assessed standards. Ask your kaimanaaki or subject teacher if you are unsure.
- For information about internal assessment deadlines, special assessment conditions, appeals and your NZQA student login, please refer to this NCEA assessment information sheet.
