(Please make all cheques out to Berkley Normal Middle School). No late entries will be accepted.

These competitions take place each year in schools throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific region. They provide an opportunity for all students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation.
All students receive a certificate and an individual results letter indicating which questions they answered correctly, as well as the average mark for New Zealand. The results letter is also useful for highlighting students’ strengths and weaknesses in these curriculum areas.
Please note that students wishing to be considered for placement into our Year 8 or Year 9 accelerate class (in 2016) are encouraged (but not required) to enter English, Maths and Science.
