NCEA Level 3 English

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Northern

Experience has shown that many students discover an absolute passion for literature when studying English at Level Three.  They will also develop writing skills to a Level that prepares them well for tertiary study or their own creative endeavors'.  

Students may choose to attend  a scholarship class. This is currently an elective option.

All Level Three English courses offer the full amount of credits and assessments required for a student to complete University Entrance (UE) Literacy. However, most students who have taken English at Level Two will have already achieved these.  Students who may be thinking about future tertiary study should be thinking about English at Level Three to help  improve their chances of success in tertiary study.  Auckland University currently requires 17 credits specifically, in Level Two or Three English.

Every class will include both a range of internal assessments, as well as external assessments. This range will be personalised where appropriate to meet the interests and needs of individual students.   

Most students will complete at least 14 credits in internal assessments and be prepared for two of their choice of three, of the external exams.  External exams are each worth four credits.  This means the average student should complete 22 credits.  For more motivated students, more assessments are available.
