Requesting your component score

Unlike the 2012 PBRF Quality Evaluation, the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) will not be automatically sending a component score breakdown to researchers, however, you can request this directly from the TEC. Please note that the University of Otago cannot request the breakdown on behalf of any individual staff member.

In order to request the component score breakdown, you will be required to complete the PDF form PBRF-Request for EP Information that can be filled, saved and sent electronically. This form will be provided in the email announcing the completed upload of results into Web Kiosk. It will also be available to download in MyResearch. You will need to insert your National Student Number (NSN) and EP ID in the form to ensure the EP information is correctly identified – your unique NSN and EP ID will be shown alongside the score in Web Kiosk. You will have a choice between receiving your breakdown by email or post, however, the email option is preferred by the TEC.

Any staff who submitted an EP and are no longer employed at the University, are able to contact Dr Donna Hendry, PBRF and Publications Manager (; ext. 5391) to request their score from 30 April onwards.

If you have any questions please contact the PBRF and Publications Office,, Ext. 5391.
