For students that are intending to gain University Entrance it is strongly recommended that they select at least four University Entrance approved courses. 

Year 13 (IST) is independent, unsupervised learning that can take place at school or at home.  Students are responsible for managing their work during this time. 

Students who have not completed NCEA Level 2 will receive a customised timetable to support the completion of NCEA Level 2 while in Year 13.
