The Government has announced measures to help minimise the impact of the Christchurch earthquake on secondary school students' NCEA results.
Christchurch students will be able to apply for derived grades to replace their usual external exam results and deadlines for portfolio-based subjects will be extended.
Students who still miss out on NCEA level 3 or University Entrance can apply for special credit inclusion.
Schools will be encouraged to assess fewer credits in order to reduce teacher and student workloads.
The Canterbury Secondary Principals Association says the changes are welcome, but schools also want action to ensure that students do not miss out on merit and excellence endorsements.
