Results today and online are ready for 165,000 students waiting to learn about their end-of-year state certification for educational achievement exams.
Michael Williams, president of the Association of New Zealand (SPANZ), said that the day of results was great for both parents and students. Those who received the desired results would be euphoria but also frustration.
"It's not time for dramatic action. It's very important for parents and students to breathe. There are many ways to reach where you want to go."
If year 13s missed their mark, Williams said they should talk to the school about alternatives. The same was true for levels 1 and 2.

"The reality is that the school has a month before the university starts. It is quite common that students go back to school within a month and received additional credits that were short.
"I think all adults know that life is never as smooth as we want it to be. There are always hiccups. There are always different ways to achieve results. The task of parents is to help students with this disappointment."
University courses with limited access often included student enrollment after the first year, which could enable students to study Allied course and change research, Williams said.
There was also a slight chance that the document was labeled with an error, but the pupils should talk to their teachers about it. "There is a chance to go and get a re-evaluation of your sign."
The New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) has expanded its call center hours to give students specific questions about their results.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer Kristine Kilkelly said that the internet connection and the type of device that the student used to apply could prevent students from accessing their online results.
"We are redirecting IT resources to deliver results, and we are extensively testing to deliver results."
The results are as the Ministry of Education continues to review the NCEA, which was announced at the end of 2017.
It was planned to examine whether all pupils should try to obtain a first level qualification and whether the adolescents are overrated.
Following the 2018 exams, approximately 1.3 million exam brochures were marked.
