The Kaikorai Valley College pupil sat four exams last month, finishing up with music yesterday, and, largely, he thought they went well.
Aside from a "clearance day" at school today, he was done and dusted for the year, and free for the holidays.
Rory was one of about 6358 Otago secondary school pupils who sat NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship examinations during the past month, and he was among more than 143,000 candidates nationwide this year.
New Zealand Qualifications Authority deputy chief executive, qualifications, Bali Haque said more than 1.5 million examination booklets had been produced for the examinations, including some Braille papers produced by the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind and papers for visually impaired candidates which had been enlarged to A3 size.
The month-long exam season finished yesterday with NCEA level 1 music and Latin, level 2 economics and business studies, level 3 music studies and Chinese, and scholarship economics and Japanese.
In a bid to move NZQA towards a "paper-less system", candidates would be able to view their results online in mid-January, Mr Haque said.
Result notices can be requested for receipt in early January via the NZQA website.
