2 days - bought a box the other day! That's why I can't apply for SMC with a job offer at the mo - otherwise I would have done after the original EOI knock back. Still hoping this way will get me the points back then fingers crossed the ITA - all which I can sort out whilst I'm on mat leave - best layed plans hey?! Can't see it happening that way though it's too straight forward!! If it doesn't it's not the end of the world - god, look at what's happening everywhere in the world at mo. x

Just checked mine - it says the same! When do you think they take the 35 days from - the submit date ie payment or the file set up date? No - I'm officially overdue!

Hmmmm, not sure, but have seen some threads where people are saying that it can progress really quickly once the file is set up. One woman said after 10 calendar days her result was showing as sent to her!!! Have you seen the ENZ forums? There is one specifically for NZQA which I have found very helpful.

Drink more tea!!!

No what are the ENZ forums? Are they similar to this forum or a thread off this forum? There are loads of questions about NZQA I think people get very confused - understandably though, as they and NZIS don't always match up with their thinking and appear to change the goal posts!

It would be good if I can get mine done quickly as my time frame for the EOI runs out soon but I doubt I will because I literally finished a qual at the end of January and it's taken me ages to get the evidence together to send. I've still got to forward on the official ' I've passed' letter although they've got the transcript. Be good for you though?!

Drinking tea, eating pineapple, curry.......still nothing

Default Re: Done it....at last!!!

If you can afford it, you can go for a fast track. They will give you pretty fast results in about 15-20 working days. You will also need to pay your uni a verification fee and get a verification document sent.

NZQA can have some rather lazy/somewhat disorganized/incompetent case officers. They will send a verification request in your postal address and not email you. Once you know your case officer, you can email him for that verification document. The sooner you do that, the faster you can get the verification to your uni and ask them to fax it to the officer.

This verification thing wastes time. Only after 4-7 working days after verification is received by the officer (get this emailed if possible and faxed), you can get a result which will be couriered to you.

Also, when they give you a result, the qualification assessment may be wrong. Be sure to check in accordance with what you expect. This will also waste time. Tell your case officer in advance the majors of your qualification.

The case officers are not necessarily the best qualified individuals (not PhD holders or Masters Degree Holders in the area that you are getting assessed or in general).

So be wary of this. You may be waiting and the verification could be in your post box for weeks before your realize this process.

Just trying to help. It's my job.

Paid my fees today and also sent off my documents via AirSure (just to be safe)

I am soooooooo excited....now comes the 35 working day wait!!!! Will I have any nails left at the end of it??? Hmmmmm

Slightly suicidal after reading this - probably not your intent! I've submitted 4 qualifications to be assessed which would mean 3 universities?! I did read it but obviously forgot about it and just went back in to read it again. I'm holding out for the 'may' contact your Uni and Uni 'may' charge you. Fingers double crossed. x Otherwise it is doubtful I'll have my assessment back before my EOI timescale runs out - bummer.

ENZ is a website about New Zealand which also has a really great forum. Not sure if I'm allowed to big it up on here lol

I like it because there are always so many more people online than there are on this forum so you tend to get replies quicker. I use both of these forums to cover all bases!!!

Hmmmm, Robbyarg, probably not your intention but you have just confused me ha ha

No point worrying about things that 'may' happen until they do

I had a quick look at that forum - always useful to read lots of opinions and advice so thanks for that.

I'm with you - not going to worry - if it's meant to be.....I've got other pressing things on my mind at the mo!!

Not found the other forum particularly friendly so far maybe early days.

My worker from NZQA has made contact which is good.
