ACE Certificate Recognition

Secondary Qualification

A.C.E. offers several of its own secondary qualifications based on various credit requirements. The highest of these has been assessed by the NZ Vice Chancellors’ Committee and holders are eligible to be considered for admission ‘ad eundem statum’ (at the same status) at entrance level by a NZ university. A student must complete 12 PACEs per subject commencing at PACE level 1085 to gain a credit towards an A.C.E. Certificate.

Certificate of Academic Achievement NZ Year 13: 29 credits

A letter from the Chair of the New Zealand Vice-chancellor’s Committee’s Subcommittee on Entrance states:

“That students who have obtained the A.C.E. Year 13 Certificate of Academic Achievement, including 4 subjects designated Year 13/Seventh Form level, may be granted admission ad eundem statum at entrance level”

Students who achieve a Year 13 Academic Certificate with 5 subjects at the year 13 Level and with a minimum average of 93% in those 5 subjects will be awarded this certificate with honours. The A.C.E. Academic council of New Zealand considers this to be at least at an A Bursary level.

Certificate of Academic Achievement NZ Year 12: 23 credits

Another letter from the Academic Officer of the New Zealand Vice-chancellor’s Committee states:

“If any of your home-schooling families are using the Accelerated Christian Education Programme, I am happy to advise you that this has already been assessed by the NZVCC and a student achieving a Year 12 Certificate is eligible to be considered for provisional entrance by a New Zealand university.”

Many students have also gained entrance into a number of overseas institutes of higher learning.
