2016–2017 University Entrance requirements review

Outcome of review of University Entrance requirements 2016-2017

In 2016-2017, NZQA undertook a periodic review of the University Entrance requirements to ensure that the requirements remain relevant and fit-for-purpose.

Following extensive engagement and feedback from the sector, NZQA concluded that the current University Entrance requirements remain fit-for-purpose and should not be changed at this time.

There were two areas in which the review indicated that improvements could be considered:

  • a process for the regular review and maintenance of the approved subjects list;
  • review the list of standards that can be used to meet the literacy requirement.

Work on these two recommendations has been completed.

For a summary of the feedback to the University Entrance Review Discussion Document, please go to the Summary of responses to NZQA’s university entrance review discussion paper page.
