Anxious students can put themselves out of their misery by accessing their NCEA results online from today.

The 2010 results for Years 11, 12 and 13 students are available at the New Zealand Qualifications Authority's website.

It's the first time students can access their results online before they receive their results in the post, which are mailed out from January 17, NZQA deputy chief executive Bali Haque said.

Students must be registered on NZQA's website, with National Student Number, to view their results.

Scholarship results would be delivered mid-February, and national NCEA statistics would be available late March online.

Students could also order any documents, including their certificates, through the website.

NZQA would also continue to make student results available to schools and tertiary institutions so that candidates did not need to provide a printed copy of their results, he said.

Candidates have until February 18 to apply for a review or reconsideration.
