The nervous wait is over for thousands of high school students across the country, with NCEA results now available online.
Around 170,000 students have been nervously waiting to see their results, but experts warn that no matter their grades, students always have options.
"Results can be particularly daunting for school leavers who can feel their future hinges on their marks," Careers NZ principal adviser Pat Cody says.
"The reality is that there are always options and it's important for leavers to have a Plan B, or even a Plan C."
In previous years, the NZQA website has crashed under the pressure of thousands of students logging in to check their results.
So far this year there don't appear to have been any problems.
