NZUni skill testing FAQ
What are the 10 skill levels?

Skills within a level are listed approximately in order of increasing difficulty. If your question is not answered here try
How can I test for a level?
To be eligable to test for a particular level you must have passed all previous levels. For example you can not test for level 4 until you have passed levels 1,2 and 3 in order.
Who can test me?
The NZUni certification officer or an approved NZUni level tester. Peter Bier and Tony Melton are the official level testers for the federation.
How do I get tested?
You will have the opportunity to be tested at the NZ juggling festival and at most NZUni events. Alternatively you can get in touch with the NZUni certification officer to arrange an assessment time and place.
How often can I get tested?
You may test for a particular level no more than once a day. Special exceptions may be made at the discretion of the tester. For example in the case of events like the unicycling nationals, if it is the rider’s only chance to get assessed in the entire year they can be permitted to test twice in the same day.
How many levels can I pass in a day?
If you test for and pass a particular level, you may test for the next level on the same day. It is entirely possible to pass multiple levels in one day.
How does the testing process work?
Once testing begins you may not practice any skills before performing them. All skills must be demonstrated in the same session. You cannot sit for a level over two or more sessions. A single session will be one hour or less. The skills may be performed in any order that the rider choses. You are required to perform all skills for the level correctly the first time except for three skills maximum, which must be performed correctly the second time.
What if I fail a mount?
Failure to execute a mount counts as failing to perform a skill. You must retry the same mount and it must be successfully completed on the second attempt or you fail the level.
