NZQA update for Thai students

NZQA encourages all Thai students, families, New Zealand schools, agents and agencies that work with Thai students to read the updated NCEA Level 2 – Matthayom 6 equivalency and University Entrance requirements for Thailand.

The Council of University Presidents Thailand has agreed to support continuation of the NCEA Level 2 - Matthayom 6 qualifications recognition arrangement, whereby Thai universities will continue to use the equivalence criteria to make their admission decisions.

This arrangement provides two options for students to meet requirements for NCEA Level 2 - Matthayom 6 equivalency. Students who meet either of these options are eligible to apply for study at a Thai university under the Thai University Central Admission System.

The criteria for these options can be found on the NZQA website, which should be used to advise students on their programme planning and subject choices.
