The 'Teaming' Rules

The entry fee for each paper, corresponding to a specific Year level and paper type, is $75 per student.

However, a group must consist of at least three students. The referee is responsible for assembling and registering these students together, requiring a one-time payment of $225 ($75 * 3). It's essential that all three students register for the same paper, meaning they must select the same Year level and paper type.

If the referee finds a fourth or more students interested in registering for the same paper (i.e. same Year level, AND same paper type) as the existing group, each new student can join the group at the same $75 entry fee. You can contact us via email regarding your registration intentions (such as the number of students, which paper they will be participating in, etc.). Our email address is 

On the other hand, if any students choose a different paper than the established group, they will need to form another separate group of three for the registration.

Registering in group of 3:

Student A

Student B

Please include student name+ NL-SS as reference.

*Must be paid in a group (total NZ$225), do not pay $75 separately. 

Please include Referee's name as reference.
