The New Zealand Qualifications Authority has apologised for a botch-up in yesterday's maths exam.

The authority this morning apologised for a mistake in a question in the level 3 statistics paper.

Students sitting the three hour exam were left unable to give a correct answer after an error in a table.

The qualifications deputy chief executive Kristine Kilkelly today apologised to students saying no student who struggled with the question would be left disadvantaged.

"In the examination there was an error in a data table in of one of the three questions that meant students couldn't answer part of that question," she said.

"We are committed to ensuring that no student will be disadvantaged as a result."
