    It's a nervous day for some high school students -- but not for others

    It's a nervous day for some high school students -- but not for others


    More than 160 thousand students will be able to access their NCEA results from some time this morning.

    Auckland's Papatoetoe High School was able to access unexpected event credits and learning recognition credits due to the pandemic.

    Principal Vaughan Couillault says that meant only 10 to 20 percent of his students actually sat their exams.

    He says they don't want those credits to unfairly advantage or disadvantage, but to account for the disruption last year.
