When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selection Lists for HEIs?

The higher education department (DHERST) launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2021. So what does the launching mean; and when will DHERST publish the 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for the tertiary institutions in the country?

Here are 5 points that students, parents and guardians should know as they check their names on National Online Selection System (NOAS).

Students to check their selection status (1)

Students can view their selection STATUS through their individual National Online Application Accounts. That means that the 2021 Grade 12 students should use their NOAS login details to access their accounts and confirm their selection status for 2022.

By now you (Grade 12 student) should know if you have secured a tertiary institution placement, or not. 

In fact, this is the final outcome of your School Leaver's Choice on the National Online Application System. 

The selection status on DHERST National Online Selection System is 'provisional' only. That means two things: 

  • first, the HEI will send you an offer letter, also called the acceptance letter, to confirm your placement with the institution; and
  • second, DHERST will formally publish your name on the 2022 Grade 12 selection list PDF on its website.

What should you do if you are selected? (2)

Congratulations if you are selected to continue to a tertiary institution in 2022. There are several things that you should find out. 
  • Are you on TESAS (AES, HECAS)?
  • Will you be a SELF-SPONSORED student?
  • When are you likely to see your name on the 2022 DHERST selection list?
  • When is the 2022 REGISTRATION and ORIENTATION WEEK?
  • Should you inform your institution that you've accepted that offer?
At least, try to find out the answer to the 5 questions as you prepare to go to your new school. 

Here is an article that can help you prepare for the registration and orientation week. It gives details to documents you need to present at registration, fees and what to do to get yourself prepared for the new academic year.

DHERST new Grade 12 data (3)

Note that there are ONLY 16,171 spaces available at the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Papua New Guinea according to DHERST's new data

For the 2022 Academic Year, there were 

  • 31, 817 students nominated to sit the exams; 
  • 26,544 students certified;
  • 16,171 total HEI quota ; 
  • 10,373 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies.

Many Grade 12 students, like in the past years, will not get an HEI placement though they may have really good grades.

If you have secured a placement, you should be proud of yourself!

Important Announcement from DHERST 2022 (4)

DHERST and HEIs will use Grade 12 students' data in the National Online Application System (NOAS) to confirm their selections. Here is what DHERST has to say:
  • Your (Grade 12 Students) data from the MyNOAS data field has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution that selected you.  The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you about the specific details of the institution, including how to accept your offer. 
  • Note that the response contained therein (in the NOSS) is not an admission confirmation. You should expect to receive official notice through an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI).
Over 10,370 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies. If you feel that you have made the Grade, but missed out, here is a story that will inspire you. 

Read about Sharlyne's story. She completed Grade 12 at Marianville Secondary School. Her Grade Point Average (GPA) was above the cut-off mark for entry into UPNG, but she missed out on the selection.

When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for HEIs?


DHERST announced that it would publish the Grade 12 selection List for 2021 on the 8th of January 2021.

The higher education department has not given a definite date for 2022, yet. The info that went out to students via the MYNOAS has the date for last year's selection.

Meanwhile, we think that DHERST will do the same this year, publish the final 2022 selection list EARLY IN JANUARY 2022. Just to be sure, please check in to your MyNOAS for the latest news and updates from DHERST

This is the final list that will confirm your selection to an HEI for 2022.
