What is Tertiary Entrance Rank, TER?

The Tertiary Entrance Rank appears on the Grade 12 students provisional statement of results they access from My PNG Exam Results website. There are in fact three numbers that appear together: the RANK, the TERTIARY ENTRANCE RANK and the GRADE 12 STUDENT POPULATION. 


When will DHERST formally publish the 2022 Grade 12 selection List for HEIs?

What is Tertiary Entrance Rank


The RANK is the Grade 12 student's 'position' relative to the number of grade 12 students who sat the exams and are graded in that particular year.

The GRADE 12 STUDENT POPULATION as the name implies, is the total population of Grade 12 students who sat the Grade 12 examination in that particular year. 

So what is the TERTIARY ENTRANCE RANK?

Tertiary Entrance Rank, TER

The TERTIARY ENTRANCE RANK is basically the total ranking out of 100%.

Though there is no clarity on the criteria used in the PNG Grade 12 TER, it is widely understood that the final TER is inclusive of both the Year 11 and Year 12 internal (SCHOOL-BASED) and external (EXAM) marks.

So if a Grade 12 student's tertiary entrance rank is 80%, it means the student performed above 79% of the whole student population who sat the exams; and 20% of the students performed above that particular student.

TER is Rank not Mark

Note that the tertiary entrance rank is not a mark. As the name implied, it is a rank. 

The TERTIARY ENTRANCE RANK simply shows where you are relative to the general student population who sat for the exam in the country.

All in all, the higher the TER, the better the performance. The lower the TER, the poorer the performance.
