Sixth Form Certificate

Sixth Form Certificate was a New Zealand secondary school qualification gained at the end of Form 6 (Year 12) that was awarded until 2002. The system was assessed internally.

Sixth Form Certificate was originally developed to allow schools to provide a more comprehensive range of courses than was available from University Entrance subjects. Sixth Form Certificate has always been internally assessed by schools. Students were awarded "1" for "an excellent level of achievement" in a subject down to "9" for low levels of achievement. The amount of 1s, 2s, 3s etc. available for allocation to students were based on the school's previous year's School Certificate results and were not transferred if a student changed schools. These grades were then allocated to the students. A Grade 5 was considered a minimum pass at Sixth Form level while a Grade 6 or 7 was the equivalent of a School Certificate level pass in that subject.

The grades were allocated as follows:

Grade Proportion of students
1 top 4%
2 next 6%
3 .. 10%
4 .. 17%
5 .. 22%
6 .. 22%
7 .. 12%
8 .. 6%
9 .. 1%

Sixth Form Certificate has been replaced by the National Certificate of Educational Achievement at level 2.

Famous quotes containing the words certificate, sixth and/or form:

    God gave the righteous man a certificate entitling him to food and raiment, but the unrighteous man found a facsimile of the same in God’s coffers, and appropriated it, and obtained food and raiment like the former. It is one of the most extensive systems of counterfeiting that the world has seen.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The real dividing line between early childhood and middle childhood is not between the fifth year and the sixth year—it is more nearly when children are about seven or eight, moving on toward nine. Building the barrier at six has no psychological basis. It has come about only from the historic-economic-political fact that the age of six is when we provide schools for all.
    James L. Hymes, Jr. (20th century)

    [With the Union saved] its form of government is saved to the world; its beloved history, and cherished memories, are vindicated; and its happy future fully assured, and rendered inconceivably grand.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
