2022/2023 DHERST NOAS Online Application Grade 12

DHERST 2022 Online SLF Application for Grade 12 presents Grade 12 students are in a privileged position to make the right choices for their Grade 12 School Leavers. 

Firstly, the National Online Application  System (NOAS) gives the students the right choice upfront by highlighting (in red) the 'ineligible' options. There is no room for getting the choices wrong. 

Secondly, the students have 5 choices. That means 5 chances of getting into a tertiary institution.

In the past, Grade 12 students did not have the chance to change their choices after they filled out the manual School Leaver's Form (SLF). Not do the past students have 5 choices, but they were limited to only 3 choices.

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

So, here is how you (Grade 12 students) can make full use of the Grace Period and maximise your chances of securing a space for 2023.

2022 Grace Period - Why it is important

The Grace Period lasts only 5 days. This is the time when you 'adjust' your choices. This is the easy part because DHERST should indicate to you on NOAS whether you are eligible for selection or not depending on your examination marks. 

Here is what DHERST say about why the Grace Period is important:

''This [Grace Period] is a crucial period where you will start making your choices based on your final grade 12 results hence make sure to access your account during the mentioned dates. If you see the red highlight indicated in any of your five choices under “My Choices”, this means that your final result has not met the minimum program requirement set by the institution. Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.'' DHERST

In 2021, the Grade 12 students in the country had between Tuesday 14th December and Friday 17th December to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. DHERST did NOT grant access after the due date for making any further changes.

Launching of DHERST 2023 selection lists for universities and non-universities often comes out on Tuesday of the following week. Check this space for any latest on the Grade 12 Grace Period and the launching of 2023 selection lists.

Launching of 2022 selection for the 2023 academic year

The online selection via DHERST's National Online Selections System (NOSS) will kick in and do the magic in 3 days. 

Last year (2021), DHERST planned to launch the 2022 selections for the academic year on Tuesday 21 December 2021. But, there were administrative issues that prompted the Department of Higher Education to re-call, update and republish the selection listing.

If all goes to plan, students are likely to see their selection status by the date announced by DHERST - see this article for the launching of the 2023 DHERST acceptance list.
