Proportion vs Amount


When applying to the US with NCEA, what matters the most: the proportion of E credits or the amount?



The amount is generally more important above a certain amount. Adjusted GPA is calculated by looking at proportion of credits out of your best 80 credits for many schools so you want to have at least 80 excellence credits to get a perfect GPA generally. Above this, volume of E credits is important and scholarship results.

Send me your subjects and NCEA transcript and I can give you a more specific recommendation as there is a lot more nuance to it.
