However, note that the 2024 Grade 12 selection list for PNG tertiary institutions will not be available immediately after the release of the Grade 12 Online Results. It will take a few days for DHERST to do the online selections for each tertiary institution in the country. 

The final DHERST list will be published online in PDF format. The Department of Higher Education has released the schedule for 2024, click here to find out the the 2024 Grade 12 selection list will come out.

NDOE Result vs DHERST Selection

First, the online result will come out, released by the NDOE, through the Measurement Servies Division (MSD). Note that the Grade 12 exam results for 2023 were released on the 8th of December 2024. By now, all Grade 12 students in the country should have accessed their examination results.

After that, the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHESRT) will use the marks to finalise their selections for PNG tertiary institutions; and make the selection listing for 2024 available on their website. 

Here is how the online results and selection work

TESAS Awards List - Universities

The Grade 12 selection for tertiary institutions in PNG, usually, comes out during the last week of December or the first week of January of the new year as seen in the last two years.

However, there were administrative problems with the Grade 12 selections in 2020, 2021 and 2022. The problems were fixed and the selection lists were updated and released to the public.

We hope the that 2024 Grade 12 selection list will flow smoothly according to the schedule released by DHERST.

Here is what DHERST said about the updated Grade 12 selections listing for tertiary institutions in 2020 which was retracted:

The Department of Higher Education Research Science & Technology (DHERST) wishes to advise students and higher education institutions (HEIs) that it has revised the previous TESAS awards for continuing students for new academic year. The award list published on the DHERST website on the 5th of January 2020 is retracted due to some technical problems beyond our control. This has been rectified and scholarships rewarded to all eligible students. (DHERST Press release | 19/01/2020)
