For NCEA Level 1

Level 1 Course Explanations

Year 11 students can study six courses in 2018:

  • Mathematics and English (or ESOL) are compulsory.
  • Science is highly recommended as an option to keep pathways open for NCEA Level 2 and beyond (see the table below for Science options)
  • Physical Education & Health is recommended

During Level 1 students work with their Learning Advisors to help them plan their career pathways and ensure they are taking courses that will lead them in the direction they wish to follow. The college is able to personalise programmes based on student needs.
