To Clarify: 

  • All Level 3 courses at Papanui High School provide credits that count towards NCEA Level 3.
  • NCEA Level 3 can be gained without achieving University Entrance - it depends on your choice of subjects.
  • University Entrance can only be achieved by taking at least subjects from the Approved Subject list.
  • In each Level 3 course outline it will state if that course is on approved subject list for University Entrance. 

 Please Note: Credits gained from the courses in the table below will count towards NCEA Level 3 but will not count towards University Entrance as the courses are not on the approved subject list.
