Thousands of high school students across the country will be waking to find their exam results online.
Almost 168,000 students were given access to their preliminary NCEA results on Tuesday morning, putting them one step closer to finding out if they've gotten into their chosen university.
The New Zealand Qualifications Authority made about 600,000 results for levels one to three available about 7am, including a level-one maths exam that earned national headlines due to its difficulty.
NZQA refrained from giving students a heads up about the exact time results would be released this week after a surge of people logging in caused problems on the website last year.
Meanwhile, students heading off to uni this year will be eligible for one full-time year of free study under a policy introduced by the government before Christmas.
But they are being reminding to check their eligibility quickly.
"People will need to act soon to ensure their fees-free eligibility is processed in time to complete enrolment for many qualifications and courses starting in 2018," Tertiary Education Commission chief executive Tim Fowler said.
"Broadly, if you're a New Zealander who finished school in 2017, or if you will finish school during 2018, you qualify for a year of fees-free provider-based tertiary education or two years of industry training in 2018," he said.
Meanwhile, Tuesday may bring disappointment for some students who might not get their desired results.
Mr Fowler said parents and teens may need to think about other career options or look into alternative training pathways.
The government last month announced a major review of the NCEA system, which replaced School Certificate in 2002.
