NCEA Entry Score Calculator

Clocktower at night

The NCEA Entry Score Calculator is currently undergoing maintenance. Please see below for information on how an Entry Score is calculated.

How the score is calculated

An entry score will be calculated using a student's 80 best credits in up to five University Entrance subjects taken at Level 3 or above (including both achievement standards and unit standards).

No more than 24 credits in any subject can be used in the entry score calculation. Credits will be weighted according to the level of attainment.

If a student achieves fewer than 80 credits at Level 3 or above in up to five University Entrance subjects, the entry score will be based on the credits achieved.

An entry score will be calculated by awarding points as follows:

  • Excellence - 4 points
  • Merit - 3 points
  • Achieved - 2 points
