NT Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET)
The Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET) qualification is designed to recognise the knowledge and skills that have been acquired through formal education and training.
The completion requirements, approved by the Minister for Education, make the NTCET a unique and contemporary certificate that is closely aligned with senior secondary directions in other states.
The NTCET provides students with access to flexible learning arrangements where students have increased opportunities to develop the business, interpersonal and employment-related skills needed for the future.

The 2012 NTCET results will be released on Wednesday 19 December 2012. Students can access their individual results from the SACE Board of South Australia website.
The NTCET Top 20 list is determined from the university aggregate (a score out of 80) of students who completed a NTCET in 2012.
A Results and Enquiries Service will offer a free-call telephone helpline on 1800 009 282. NTCET staff will take calls and assist students and parents to interpret results and offer career and tertiary advice. The service will operate from 8:30am to 4:30pm weekdays until 11 January 2013.

Completion requirements of the NTCET
Every subject you complete successfully will earn you credits. Gain 200 credits in the right mix of subjects and courses and you will receive your NTCET. As an indication, a full semester (six months) of study in one subject will be worth 10 credits.
Students will receive a grade for each subject (A to an E). For the compulsory subjects, a C grade or better will be required to complete your NTCET.
At Stage 1 (Year 11), teachers at your school will mark all subjects. At Stage 2 (Year 12), 30 percent of your work in each subject (such as exams, practical projects and presentations) will be marked by experts outside your school. The rest of your work will be assessed by teachers at your school, with their marks cross-checked with experts outside your school. This ensures everyone is marked according to the same standards.
When you have finished your NTCET, you will receive a certificate which records your achievements. Information about your achievements will be available online in both Stage 1 and Stage 2.
The following table shows what will be required as a minimum to achieve the NTCET. Many students will choose to study more subjects than the minimum required at Stage 2.
- Students must achieve an A, B or C for all the compulsory subjects and courses.
- Students must achieve an A, B or C in 140 credits.
The NTCET is based upon the South Australian Certification of Education (SACE) which is administered by the SACE Board of South Australia.
