NCEA results online today

Adrenalin levels have shot up for teenagers across the country this morning, as NCEA results become available.

For the first time this year results can be accessed online by the thousands of Year 11, 12 and 13 pupils who sat NCEA in 2010.

NZQA deputy chief executive Bali Haque said while everyone should be able to access results online now, NZQA would not publicise the release until later today.

''We want to be 100 percent sure of the system and make sure our IT systems are effective.

''We expect them to be fully available this afternoon but they [should be able to be] accessed at the moment.''
