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. Amended to 54 for 2021
- 14 credits in each of three subjects at L3 (not including STAR.)
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.
