Grade 9 Selection List for 2022 High and Secondary Schools

Many parents will be wondering about the final Grade 9 selection list for 2022. It can be a struggle to find out, especially if you do not know who to ask. 

Here is some information about the selection of Grade 9 students to high and secondary schools in PNG. It gives details of the Grade 8 exams, exam results and Grade 9 selection.

Grade 11 selection info and updates


Grade 9 Selection in PNG

The Grade 9 selection is based on the students' internal marks (school-based) and external marks (examination marks). Grade 8 Students wanting to go to the top secondary and high schools must do well in both internal and external assessments.

It is important to understand that, though the Grade 8 examination is set by the National Department of Education in Port Moresby, the Grade 8 examinations and Grade 9 selection is decentralised to the provinces in the country. Hence, the running of the exam and selecting students to Grade 9 is done at the provinces, by the provincial education board in collaboration with heads of Primary Schools.

Provincial Education Board & Grade 9 Selections Lists 2022

The education officers, in collaboration with headteachers and Grade 8 teachers, in the provinces are in charge of: 

  • exam security, 
  • conducting and marking the exams, 
  • quality-checking the Grade 8 exam results,
  • selecting students to Grade 9, and 
  • reporting to the Education Department.

Provincial Examination Supervisor (Grade 8 PES)

The key person in the province responsible for the smooth flow of the Grade 8 examinations is the Provincial Examination Supervisor (PES). The Grade 8 PES is a national education officer, as the inspectors and Guidance Officers, but based in the provinces. 

The PES liaises with Measurement Services Division matters pertaining to exams, students school data, conducting of exams, reporting on exams and gives feedback on exam-related issues.

Grade 8 Examinations in Primary Schools

The following examinations are taken at Grade 8 students at the end of Primary Schools:


Grade 9 selection 2021


Grade 8 Certificate of Basic Education Examination (CoBEE)

Every Grade 9 student in the country should have a Certificate of Basic Education Examination (CoBEE). Many provinces have failed to issue the CoBEE. If you a parent/student from one of these provinces, demand that your children get the certificate. It is an important achievement.

Some people thought that CoBEE was not necessary because of its limited uses. However, wouldn't it be right for the Grade 8 students to celebrate 8 years of Primary School education with an award? 

Like the other certificates of merit, the Grade 8 certificate marks a milestone in a child's education journey. Each province, and provincial education board in the country, should prioritise this award and issue the certificate to Grade 8 school leavers. 


Grade 9 Selections to Secondary Schools 2022

Potential Grade 9 students can check their Grade 8 exam results at the provincial education office. Usually, the PES and Headteachers have access to the final results.

Parents should go through the schools/headteachers if they want to address any exam-related queries. The schools will raise their concern with PES and get an answer for them.

As mentioned earlier, PES is the key person in the province. He is the 'glue' that binds the Grade 8 exams results and Grade 9 selection - the go-to person - in the provinces.


New Grade 9 Students' Placement for 2022

In some instances, many secondary schools and high schools have feeder schools. The system allows for Grade 8 students to transition to Grade 9. Such transition (the Grade 8 to Grade 9 transition) makes it easier for parents to find out if their children have continued to Grade 9, or not.

Some top high and secondary school principals prefer the best Grade 8 students in the province. If you know that your child does well in the Grade 8 examination  (and is not selected to the local high school), check with the top secondary schools in the province. The schools may have picked him/her.

Parents and citizens in NCD, Central, Morobe and other main centres will have difficulty finding out their children's Grade 9 placement for 2022. The best place to check is the provincial education office. Ask for the Grade 8 PES or the chairperson of the Provincial Grade 9 Selection Committee and speak to them calmly. They will help you.

I wanted my nephew to repeat Grade 9. He was at Mainohana Secondary School in Central Province in 2020. I new that he was not going to do well due to conditions beyond his control, so in October 2020, I wrote a letter to the Principal of Tokarara Secondary School requesting for my nephew to repeat Grade 9 in 2021 at Tokarara Secondary School.

I am yet to get a feedback from the Principal regarding this request.

My point is that the education system must be so concious by reducing the cut-off mark from 80 down to 70 for grade eights as well as tens and twelves. Just a query as a concern citizen... thanks
