PNG Universities School Leavers Selections Lists Download Page

PNG Insight noted that, unlike the past years, this year the school leavers' selection lists for tertiary institutions in PNG were published as a Microsoft Excel file. You may have difficulty seeing the file on smaller screens. We converted the file to PDF so you can download it here.

We update this page as/when the universities and DHERST release selection/acceptance lists for the school leavers, non-school leavers and continuing students. Click on the active blue links to check the published lists.

DHERST released TESAS Awards Lists

DHERST released the TESAS Award lists for new intakes (SL and NSL) and continuing students on the 19th of January 2023. Download the PDF lists.

Note that the list of names is not arranged by the institutions like in the past, but by the surnames of all the students in the country. It is going to take time to find your name. 

Use the PDF search (CTRL+F) and search your SLF number or your full name. This way, you'll find your selection status quickly.

2023 Updates (19/01/2023):

  • DHERST TESAS Award list for New Intakes (SL & NSL) and Continuing students released today - download the PDFs here - TESAS AWARDS - NEW INTAKE LIST and 2023 TESAS AWARDS - CONTINUING STUDENTS

Important update re. 2023 DHERST selections LISTS

We've realised that DHERST 'unpublished' the Non-School Leavers Selection List that they released on the 21st of December 2022. No reason has been given. 

We also receive comments from our visitors asking for 'some' university programs and colleges that have not appeared on the list. It is something that DHERST will have to check at their end.

PNG Insight updated the selection lists that DHERST released on the 21st and 23rd of December 2022. Note that the Non-school leavers list DHERST released was actually the School leavers list, as such there are duplicates - we apologise for that.

In the meantime, note that the non-school leavers selection lists will be released by the universities and colleges as we have noted in the VIDEO. And, the final list will appear on TESAS Award Lists based on past observations.

We'll let you know as soon as we get the latest info on the non-school leavers selection lists for 2022/2023 - watch this space.

Hi Admin,
That list for school leavers or non school leavers, it's confusing.

Please be advise.

PNG Insight said...

School leavers selection contains the names of students selected through NOAS, the grade 12 students, whereas non-school leavers are prospecting students who applied to the universities and colleges. The vidoe has more information on that.

Flints said...

What about re-enrollment acceptance list for UPNG?
Are you guys going to publish it with the non school leaver list

Benjamin Faiyu said...

It seems like all these list with ID numbers belongs to school leavers. Could you produce a separate list for non school leavers and post graduate studies?

Thank you

Steve said...

Hi Admin,
It seems that both the School Leaver list and Non-school leaver list for Divine Word University have the SAME names.

Please can that be updated or fixed??

PNG Insight said...

Thank you @Benjamin and @Steve, we've updated this article based on your feedback.

Diiboy said...

Shenkay said...

When will the UOG NSL selection list will be released?

Unknown said...

I really like the way Madang Divine Word delivered their list to the public on facebook page. If UPNG uses the same template would be more clearer and neat. The current list is confusing.
Is the list for Natural and Physical Sciences NSL out yet?

PNG Insight said...

Divine Word University has been prompt with the release of School Leavers, Non-School Leavers and Continuing students lists over the years. Always the first - it shows they are well-organised and do things like clockwork. Admire the way DWU deals with the timely release of these lists.

Unknown said...

When actually the non school leavers of uog will be out??

Kaupa David said...
