  • Check with your school that the default password (yyyyprschcand) is correct, especially the candidate number.
  • 'Clear input data' and try again.
  • Clear the Cache on your mobile phone or computer and try again
  • Ask your school to assist you by checking the log in detail, again.
  • Only seek assistance from MSD as the last resort, and must be done through your school or Exam Coordinators (also called PES) in the provinces.
Important: If you changed your password, it is your responsibility to set it so that ONLY you can remember it. Do not give an excuse that you 'forget' the password. It is all up to you to ensure that you recall the password every time you need it!

Grade 11 Online Selection Process 2021 Explained (with Video)

2021 Grade 11 Online Selection for National High Schools and Secondary Schools in the country will be done online. The Grade 11 online selection follows is an initiative of the National Department of Education.

This education blog reproduces the Education Secretary's circular in brief for parents, guardians and stakeholders (alike) to understand the  Grade 11 selection process. 

The process (How Grade 11 Selection is done in 2021)

  • Measurement Services Division (MSD) will provide the final results for Grade 10 to Information and Communication Division (ICD).
  • ICD will run the Grade 11 Selection.
  • General Education Services will coordinate the selection process with all the principals from secondary and national high schools.
  • Inspections and Standards Division (ISD) and Guidance and Counselling Division (GCD) will assist principals in the provinces. Principals are asked to enter and verify data in the provinces.
Check out this video for the explanation and example.

YOU CAN SEE THE EDUCATION SECRETARY'S CIRCULAR ON 2021 GRADE 11 SELECTIONS VIA THE LINK >> CLICK HERE.

Dates for 2021 Grade 11 Selections

The department of Education expects the (actual) selection to be done in 2 - 3 days as it will be done online. However, the data entry at the provinces and the selection process will take two weeks.
  • Grade 11 selection 2021 - 30th November - 11th December 2020
  • Principals to start selecting students on the 2nd December 2020
  • The selection listing for Grade 11 to secondary and national high schools is expected to be released after 11th December 2020

Grade 11 Selections Cut-off

The selections for Grade 11 to national high schools and secondary schools will be based on the Education Board's National Standards Requirements.
  • National High Schools Selection: The school of excellence concept requires that Grade 10 students with Distinctions or Credits are selected to National High Schools. The eligible students are pre-selected based on their intention on the School Leavers Forms.
  • Secondary Schools Selection: Students with x7 Upper Passes or a percentile score of 77 points or higher to be selected to Grade 11

Grading, Subject Weighting and Results

Grade 10 students in the country study x7 subjects. Hence, the results are based on all the subjects taken by every student. Here is a screenshot of Information on Grading, Subject Weighting and Grade 11 selection results. 

Source: Education Secretary Circular (13/2020)

6 Factors for non-selection of students to Grade 11
  • Fail to apply
  • Bad Character 
  • Below School Quota
  • No School leavers form
  • Parents not requesting a transfer 
  • Gender equity in case of a tie in the selection
The Grade 11 selection for 2021 takes a new approach where principals and education offices do the selection in the provinces, instead of Port Moresby. 

This blog advocates for transparency in the selection of Grade 11 students. At the same time, we hope that the new Grade 11 online selection initiative of the NDoE is as effective and efficient' and can deliver the results on time. 

Past Grade 11 Selections - Port Moresby

The Grade 11 selections used to take place in Port Moresby. Principals and education officers from the provinces gathered in the capital city for weeks on end to do the selection. It can take up to 2 weeks for them to select students for the national high and secondary schools.

The principals and education officers from the provinces work with MSD and GED (two divisions of National Department of Education) to finalise the selections. 

The final selection listing would be given to the education secretary to sight and sign and made available on the department of education website. The principals also inform the newly selected Grade 11 students to their schools for the new academic year. 

This was the past where things were done manually. 

Data Entry and Verification

The principals and a provincial selection committee would meet in the provinces and do the 2021 Grade 11 selection. They then verify students eligibility and enter their data online. (An important function, now done in the provinces) . Data verification and entry will take two (2) weeks. 

The Grade 11 selection is a mandatory function of the National Education Board (NEB). The selection of Grade 11 student is not a provincial function, it still remains a national function. This implies that the cleansing of data (if any) and final (quality) checks will be done by the NEB before the 2021 Grade 11 selection listing comes out to the public.

2021 Grade 11 Selection List: PNG National High and Secondary Schools - info & update

The Grade 11 selection for 2021 is usually released by the General Education Services (GES) of the National Education Department before the end of the year. Perhaps it is important to understand the effort (and appreciate the timebound work) the education officials put into selecting the Grade 11 students in 2020 for 2021.

Grade 11 selection for 2021

1. Grade 10 Exams taken by students in schools in the provinces
2. Grade 10 Students scripts are marked in the provinces
3. Results are sent from the provincial marking centres to the Education Department in Port Moresby (MSD deals with the online Grade 10 results/marks)
4. MSD and General Education Services (a section of the National Department of Education) facilitate the selection
5. Provincial reps, principals and education officers meet in Port Moresby and use the Grade 10 students final results to select the 2021 Grade 11 students for national and secondary schools in the country
6. The 2021 Grade 11 students selection PDF lists are published on the education department website

Last year (2020), it took 10 days (from the end of the selection) for the GES to publish the Grade 11 selection list. This may seem long for the waiting parents and stakeholders, but it is important to get it right and also for the education secretary to sight the selection listing. Therefore, though it is timebound selection, GES and the education department does it well in 10 days.

Check out the Grade 11 Selection Info video

This video will help you to understand the process involved in the selection mentioned above. And, how to easily search the PDF list when it comes out. 

Timebound Activity: Grade 11 Selection 2021

The selection is timebound. As mentioned, though parents and stakeholders are desperate to see the list, we must also know that the list will (still) come out before the end of the year, 2020. No need to be worried.
