DHERST TESAS Selection List 2021 : Download Grade 12 selected students on tertiary scholarships

Updates 2021/2022: In the latest article, we take a look at the timeframe and actual dates for the release of the examination results and 2022 selections for Grade 12, Grade 11 and Grade 9 - here is the exam result and selection information.


UPDATE: We filed a DMCA complaint and, thankfully, Google has penalised the website. This article is NO longer ranking #1 on the spam site.


  • PNG INSIGHT contents were duplicated and published on a foreign website. We know that this *content scrapping* does not do anyone, any good. We are using the same heading to direct our readers to the right pages with up-to-date information.
  • CONTENT SCRAPPING is for those that have ulterior motives - that is to misdirect readers at their own convenience. We have reported this to GOOGLE in the hope that Google will penalise that website.
  • REFRAIN from using a foreign website that has duplicate content. The person behind the *stealing of our contents and images* has an ulterior motive. And DOES NOT aim to provide relevant information. We believe it is an ASIAN website. Dodgy.
  • WE will continue to provide relevant information for our readers. Please refer to the links below for the updated information on DHERST TESAS Selection List 2021

Here are the original articles where the images and words are taken from:

This is just one instance of stolen and replicated content. 

We know that content scrappers do steal content and we care less. But, we are concerned that these replicated contents can, potentially, mislead the readers. The content *that website* published has been stolen from different articles on our blog and website.

For example, the image on the stolen article (see below) does not reflect information in it. The image, in fact, was about how to Calculate GPA. Whereas the content is about Grade 12 Selection Listing for 2021.

The years have been changed, but completely misrepresented the original articles, though we had the original articles published under logical times, different headings and with clear instructions.

This is an important article with Grade 12 historical data that we compiled over the years. As such, we know when to update the articles and present them in a timely manner. We plan to update the data in the article for 2020 using the official DHERST selection list for 2021. 

There are key articles on our blog and website that we update to reflect the changes and documents released by DHERST and NDoE.

Again, we ask our readers to refrain from visiting any foreign website that has duplicated content. It can be misleading and misdirected towards PNG readers. 

What the person copying Our contents and Image should do

The better thing that foreign website could do is to use:

  • proper attribution (without links to the article, but a mention where the content originated from), 
  • disclaimer (state a brief of where the content/article is taken from and provide link/s to the original article). 
By doing one of the above acknowledgements will guide readers to the right page so that all (readers, original content producers and content-scrappers) benefit. Sadly, this website deleted all our internal links. There was no acknowledgement of our work. As mentioned, their motive is ulterior and does not aim to inform and help readers.

2021 selected students on tertiary scholarships

Last year DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) published the Grade 12 Selection List on the 18th of December.

The selected students were awarded a government’s scholarship under two categories. The PNG government’s higher education scholarship is called TESAS (the Tertiary Education Scholarship Assistant Scheme).

TESAS is classed into either HECAS (the High Education Contribution Assistance Scheme) and AES (the Academic Excellence Scholarship). If a student is not awarded one of the government’s scholarships, then the student is considered Self-sponsored. The numbers of students awarded each scholarship in 2021 are given below.

In a press release, the department of higher education said the students whose names appeared on the Grade 12 selection list must take note the following:

(1) Your personal details contained within your application has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution which has selected you.

( 2) You should expect to receive an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI). The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you on specific details.

( 3) If your Study Program receives scholarship awards from the National Government, you may be eligible for financial support through the Tertiary Education Student Assistance Scheme (TESAS). Your TESAS status is also indicated in this National Selection List. Please log in to the NOAS (apply.dherst.gov.pg) and check MyStatus section any time before the 22nd December 2018 for further details on how to access your scholarship. [DHERST, Press Release 2021 ]

It can be fiddly to identify a student’s name of the PDF selection listing. But, you can use a quick trick to solve this problem. Simply use the ‘search’ bar on the PDF list.

The students’ names are not on the selection list last year. Presumably, if it is the same this year, students can not use their names when searching. The best detail to use is the student’s number on School Leaver’s Form (SLF).
