Useful Information about the Grade 12 Selection List for 2019

DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) has today (18/12/2018) published the Grade 12 Selection List for 2019. As mentioned in an earlier post, there are two categories of students' sponsorship under TESAS (Tertiary Education Scholarship Assistant Scheme): HECAS stands for the High Education Contribution Assistance Scheme and the AES stands for the Academic Excellence Scholarship. If a student is not awarded one of the government's scholarships, then the student is considered Self-sponsored. The number of students awarded each scholarship in 2019 are given below.

But, what if a student's name is completely not on the Grade 12 selection list for 2019?  Here is what DHERST had to say about it:

We would like to inform you that your application has now been moved into the NOSS Admissions Pool. 
In the event that a higher education institution was not able to achieve 100 percent yield in the National Selections, your application may be considered from within the NOSS Admissions Pool. Should this happen, please log in to the NOAS (apply.dherst.gov.pg) and check MyStatus section prior to 31st December 2018. 
Also take note that in the event that a selected Grade 12 school leaver does not accept his/her admission offer, your application may also be considered from within the National Admissions’ Pool. Should this happen, please log in to the NOAS (apply.dherst.gov.pg) and check MyStatus section throughout February of 2019. 
If you have not achieved a GPA above 2.0 it may NOT be likely that your application will be considered from within the National Admission Pool. It is therefore highly recommended that you consider upgrading your marks with an intent to re-apply for further studies as a Non-School Leaver. Do not give up![DHERST , Press Release 2019]
