jseni01d is an unknown quantity at this point
Default NZQA and honours degrees

I can get 25 points in the NZ General Skills category, which was great until they hiked the passmark. (This is without a full-time job offer as I intend to work as a freelance translator).

Scrabbling around for an extra point or two from somewhere in case the mark comes down to 26 or 27, I noticed UK Bachelors degrees with honours can sometimes get 11 points instead of 10. Has anyone succeeded in getting 11 points from the NZQA for a BA/BSc with honours?

(Mine's a 4-year BSc. with first class honours from a British university on their list.)

Cheers,
John Senior

I think somebody posted a while back they got 11 points for a Combined Honours language degree from UK Univ, 4 yr course.

The NZQA fee goes up to NZD350 from July 22.

All the best

Then only way you can really find out how many points you degree is worth, is to send
it off to NZQA. I have a BEng in Chemical Engineering (4 year), and they only gave me
10 points. I know someone with a Masters (5 year) from Oxford who only got 10 points
- NZQA quite frankly are really tight! We figured it was worth a try, but wish we'd
never bothered!!

Best of luck - let the ng know when you get it back!

Oh - and if you want it quickly, you can keep in contact via email with NZQA, hassle
them a bit, and also they were prepared to fax me my report as a matter of urgency,
which was good.

Cheers, Phil
