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Sixth Form Certificate has been replaced by the National Certificate of Educational Achievement at level 2.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 sixth day of Christmas,
    My true love sent to me
    Six geese a-laying,
    —Unknown. The Twelve Days of Christmas (l. 26–28)

    The cohort that made up the population boom is now grown up; many are in fact middle- aged. They are one reason for the enormous current interest in such topics as child rearing and families. The articulate and highly educated children of the baby boom form a huge, literate market for books on various issues in parenting and child rearing, and, as time goes on, adult development, divorce, midlife crisis, old age, and of course, death.
    Joseph Featherstone (20th century)
