Can you put NZQA scholarships in regular decision common app?


#1

Hi There,
I live in NZ and am thinking about taking NZQA scholarship subjects.
I have noticed that the deadline for applying regular decision in the USA is in January. However, NZQA scholarship results often come out in late February. Does this mean that I will not be able to put my NZQA scholarship results in my application if I take NZQA scholarship in Year 13? Please let me know.

Thanks so much for your help.

Kind Regards
Robin

Hi Robin @18454

Good question. It’s no problem - you’ll just complete an “optional report” when your results come out. You’ll have to do the same thing if you’re taking NCEA L3 too (if I remember correctly).

You submit the optional report through the Common App.

Doing scholarship is really helpful because it helps to quantify your performance compared to the country. This is especially the case if you can get a Premier Award (because it represents top 10, which has a lot of legitimacy).

Good luck!
