Make sure you can see your NCEA record on results day

Prepare now so you'll get your results as soon as possible

NCEA results are due out in mid January. 

To get your results quickly on results day and avoid stress, make sure you know your National Student Number (NSN) and have a login on the NZQA website. 

Here's how to find your NSN and create a login.


Find your National Student Number (NSN)

You need your National Student Number (NSN) so you can create your login to the NZQA results website.

If you don't know your NSN, ask NZQA for help. You can contact them by phone or online.

Create your login on the NZQA website

Once you know your NSN, follow these three steps to create your login on the NZQA website. 

1. Supply your details

You'll need to supply your email address, a username and a password. Make sure they're ones you can easily remember.

2. Verify your email address

You'll receive an email sent to the email address you supplied.

Click on the link in the email to verify that it's the right address.

3. Verify your identity

To do this, you'll need your National Student Number (NSN).

Get help 

If you don't receive an email to verify your address, try these things first:

  • wait at least 10 minutes
  • check your junk and spam folders
  • log in again using the login details you created – if you can't, you may have made a mistake in your email address.

Contact NZQA for help if you still haven't received an email.
