The results are now and online ready for the 165,000 students who are waiting to learn the outcome of their final examinations of the National Certificate of Educational Outcomes.
Head of Co-operative Director of New Zealand (SPANZ) Michael Williams said the results were great for both parents and students. It would be euphoric for those who have obtained the desired results, but it would also be disappointing.
"It's not time for dramatic action, it's really important for parents and students to breathe." There are plenty of ways to get where you want to go.
If the 13th year missed his mark, Williams said they should talk to the school about alternatives. The same applies to Level 1 and 2 students who are afraid of going to the course.

"The truth is that the school is a month before the beginning of the university. It is quite common that the students return to school in the month and pick up the other credits they have received.
"I think all adults know that life is never as smooth as we want it to." There are always hiccups, there are always different ways to achieve results, the role of a parent is to help students through this disappointment.
University courses with restricted access often had the first year of student admission, which would allow students to study an allied course and change their studies, Williams said.
There was also a small chance that there was a mistake in labeling the paper, but students who like it should talk to their teachers. "There's the chance to go and get a new rating of your mark."
The New Zealand Qualification Office (NZQA) extended call center hours for specific student queries about their results.
A deputy executive director, Kristine Kilkelly, said internet access and the type of device the student enrolled might delay students in accessing their online results.
"We use information technology resources to ensure the availability of results, and we test the results extensively after results are released."
The results come when the Ministry of Education continues the NCEA review, which was announced at the end of 2017.
She intended to look at whether all students should attempt to qualify at the level of one and whether teenagers are overestimated.
About 1.3 million exam brochures have been labeled after 2018 exams.
