NCEA Rewards 2018 

The NCEA rewards is an initiative created to increase the pass rates of all Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei NCEA students. Basically, we will reward you for passing NCEA - do the mahi, get the treats is what we reckon! 


1.     Reward amount based on certificate endorsement, not course endorsement. For example, if you gain a total of 50 Level 2 Merit credits in 2018 you will be eligible for the $300 reward. Click here for more info on NCEA certificate endorsement.)

2.     We’re changing it up a bit this year and rewarding you with even more money! Get your literacy, numeracy, or UE Entrance and you’ll get a bonus! Applicable for this year of study only (e.g. if you did not gain your literacy credits in 2018 you will not be eligible for the $100 literacy bonus.

3.    We are also including Cambridge qualifications too!
