Meanwhile in the US… “While many 2016 high school graduates are interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors and careers, few of those students are well prepared to succeed in first-year college STEM courses.” See here for full article.

With students abandoning Maths and Physics because of their difficulty (read credits are not easy to get) I suspect we have the same problem in NZ.
