Nervous wait over for thousands of Kiwi students accessing NCEA results today

The wait is over for more than 165,000 students across the country with the final NCEA results released this morning.

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority said it has taken steps to ensure its website does not crash as a result of the extra traffic.

About 1.3 million exam booklets have been marked since tests began in November.

This year, there were about 18,000 online exam entries across a range of subjects including, for the first time, Level 3 English, Media Studies and Classical Studies.

NZQA said if students did experience delays accessing their results, it could be due to the device they were using, or the quality of their internet connection.

Students need to have their National Student Numbers with them to log on and see their results.

It says if anyone doesn't know their number they should get in touch with the authority's call centre.
