To gain University Entrance in New Zealand, you need all of the following:
- Level 1 Numeracy (10 credits)
- Level 2 Literacy (5 Reading credits AND 5 Writing credits) List of Literacy standards is here
- Level 3 (60 credits) includes STAR credits. For 2020, this is effectively 52 credits.
- 14 credits in each of three subjects at L3 (not including STAR.) For 2020 only, this is 12 credits in each of three subjects.
Some universities and specific courses have Rank Score Entry requirements over your best 80 L3 credits.
This is calculated by multiplying each credit as follows:
A = 2 points
M = 3 points
E = 4 points
So, a 5 credit standard where merit was gained = 5 x 3 points =15 points.
