New Zealand Scholarship

The New Zealand Scholarship performance standards in all subjects can be accessed through the links in the table below.

The parameters for the Scholarship performance standards relate to the level 8 achievement objectives of the NZC and related documents. They assume curriculum knowledge and skills from lower level achievement objectives.

Students will still be expected to demonstrate high level: 

  • analysis and critical thinking
  • integration, synthesis, and application of highly developed knowledge, skills, and understanding to complex situations
  • logical development, precision, and clarity of ideas.


New Zealand Scholarship Assessment Specifications can be accessed through the Scholarship subject pages.

NZ Scholarship – Physical Education Performance Standard change

The Ministry of Education, in association with NZQA, has amended the performance standard for Physical Education so that it covers the whole learning area of Health and Physical Education.

Renaming the standard and changing the outcome description means that students of Physical Education, Health and Home Economics will be able to enter for assessment in this NZ Scholarship Performance standard.
