## › About the New Zealand schooling system

The New Zealand Mathematics and Statistics Curriculum is divided into 8 levels of learning. Below is a summary of the NZC levels and associated National Standards (for students aged 6 to 13) and NCEA levels (NZ national assessment) if applicable. There is a degree of flexibility within these guidelines for students to learn subject content earlier or later than the guidelines. New Zealand students typically start school at 5 years of age.
