Despite there being no noticeable increase in the number of
Dunedin pupils sitting New Zealand scholarship examinations
in 2010, the city's secondary school pupils have recorded a
significant increase in the number of scholarships gained.
National certificate of educational achievement (NCEA) exams
begin in less than two months, and Otago secondary school
teachers are concerned about the effect of planned strike
action on their pupils' preparations for the exams.
