When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selection Lists for 2023 HEIs?

The higher education department (DHERST) launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2022. 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 2022 Grade 12 students should use their NOAS login details to access their accounts and confirm their selection status for the 2023 academic year.

By now you should know if you have secured a tertiary institution placement. If you have questions about the 2022 Grade 12 student selections for 2023, check this article.

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?
  • 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 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 were 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.

2023 DHERST TESAS Selection Lists for Tertiary Scholarships Info

In this article, we take a look at the timeframe and actual dates for the release of the examination results and 2023 selections for Grade 12, Grade 11 and Grade 9 - here is the exam result and selection information you may also want to know.

Follow the links in the updates to find out more.



  • 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

Here are the original articles which 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 the information in it. The image, in fact, was about how to Calculate GPA. Whereas the content is about Grade 12 Selection Lists.

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

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 content and Image should do

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

  • proper attribution (without links to the article, but a mention of 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). 
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.

2022 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 2022 are given below.

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).
