University of Auckland Entry Requirements
The University of Auckland Entry Requirements
1. Table A and B Requirements
In addition to achieving university entrance, some of University of Auckland’s undergraduate programmes require you to have taken specific subjects and gained minimum credits in certain subjects.
Table A and B Requirements
Table A and B Link 2. Rank Score
Your rank score is based on your best 80 credits at Level 3 or higher over a maximum of five approved subjects. These credits are then weighted by awarding points based on the level of achievement — Excellence (4 points), Merit (3 points) or Achieved (2 points) — attained in each set of credits.
A maximum of 24 credits are counted for each approved subject. The maximum rank score is 320. Approved subjects are determined by NZQA. If you achieve less than 80 credits, the rank score will be based on your total Level 3 credits gained over a maximum of five approved subjects and weighted by the level of achievement.
Credits obtained in required subjects do not have to be among the best 80 credits used to calculate the rank score.
NCEA Level 3 credits achieved before Year 13 can be counted towards the 80 best credits used for ranking.
3. Academic English Requirements
For entry to The University of Auckland, you will need 17 credits at Level 2 or 3 in English or completion of an approved academic English language course in your first year while studying at university.
4. Other Requirements
Some programmes have particular entry requirements such as particular subjects completed to Level 3 - prerequisites (such as Physics and Calculus for Engineering), a portfolio, audition and/or interview. Please check what is required for entry to particular courses.
