Student stars of NCEA
As thousands of Kiwi kids found out about their NCEA results yesterday, Ribu Dhakal got an extra lesson in how hard work pays off.
After receiving my 2012 NCEA results I had made a personal goal to cross 100 credits with excellence in one year.
It motivated me to work my hardest over the course of the year and even more so when the external exams were sat.
I constantly calculated how many credits I would need and which exams I needed to focus on, always staying in touch with this goal.
After getting my results yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to find I achieved 109 credits with excellence across level 2 and 3.
I feel a great sense of personal satisfaction and achievement.
I plan to this goal-setting trend as it truly does bring out the best in you!
Do you know a student who shone in this year's NCEA results? We'd love to hear their story.
