Updates and Information - DHERST Online Selection 2018

The DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) is rolling out the Grade 12 online selection for the second year running. Last year was a successful start, though some may say otherwise. This year is sure to build on the success of last year. The DHERST online selection is seen by many stakeholders as the way forward for the higher education in Papua New Guinea.  

DHERST Online Selection Updates

For the Grade 12 students or parents wanting more information on this year's selection, the best place to get the latest news online is the DHERST website (dherst.gov.pg) or Facebook page. 

Re-posted below is the first reminder released by dherst.gov.pg in regards to the Grade 12 online choices and selections.

___________
(1) As of 1st December 2018, your 5 Choices are locked in. In the event that you have not filled in your 5 Choices, you can still have a final chance on the 10th - 11th December 2018 (48 hours) to make your final changes to your choices.

(2) REMEMBER, although your 5 Choices are locked, you CAN still log into your NOAS account and it is important that you double check that you have filled in ALL of your MyData information. Applications Close entirely on 11th December 2018 at 11.59pm.

(3) If you are applying for a Study Program in PNG University of Technology or the University of Goroka, you are then required to have taken the STAT-P examinations and therefore you must enter you STAT-P ID in the MyData Section. If you do not enter this, Selectors at PNG UoT and UoG will not have access to your STAT-P scores and you will then miss your chance to be selected.

(4) Have you filled in your BackUP Choices? Make sure you do. This is located in the MyAcceptable Programs section.

(5) Your Grade 12 final marks will be returned to DHERST on the 8th of December 2018 and commencing on the 10th December 2018 at 12.01am, you will have 48 hours to check if you need to change your 5 choices.

(6) If in doubt, email us at studentsupport@dherst.gov.pg and provide your full name, secondary school, and phone number for us to get in touch with you.

Stay tuned to our Page. We, at DHERST, will be posting here every day to update, remind and assist you as best as we can.

Sincerely,

DHERST Support Service
