2021 Acceptance List Delay: DHERST, Govt, HEIs and Stakeholders Anxious

The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology said they'll release the Acceptance List 2021 for Tertiary Institutions in the country on the 8th of January 2021. Many anxious students and parents are wondering why the acceptance list 2021 was not released as promised. We know that DHERST is doing its very best to get the acceptance list out. And, they will probably tell the stakeholders why they did not release the list on the second Friday of January 2021.

A discussion - Acceptance list for PNG Institutions

In this article about the Acceptance List 2021, we attempt to discuss the nature of the Grade 12 selections, the 2021 Acceptance List and challenges of releasing the acceptance list on time. And, address many of the 'why' questions (see the comment thread in this article) relating to the release of selection list and acceptance list 2021.

The opinions are based on our personal experience since the inception of DHERST's online selection systems. We hope that it gives you an understanding of the whole process.

Grade 12 selections to the tertiary institutions

The selection of Grade 12 students takes place before the Acceptance List 2021 comes out. DHERST used the National Online Application System (NOAS) to capture students school leavers choices. And uses the National Online Selection System (NOSS) to, electronically, select students according to their choice on the online school leavers' form, the NOAS.

Before 2018, the Grade 12 students have only 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices they pre-fill on a manual school leavers form. The manual SLF is sent to Port Moresby where tertiary institutions in the country scour over the paper forms and select students - this is long gone. 

The online selection and 2021 acceptance list compilation will be the 3th year DHERST runs the online selection. 

The online selection system and acceptance is the best technological intervention implemented by the higher education department, DHERST. 

However, there seemed to be a certain weakness in the selection process as seen last year and this year with the delay of the 2021 acceptance list. We do not know exactly what caused the delay but we can only infer that it may be due to the Public Holiday. 

2021 Acceptance List Release 

As for this year, the 2021 acceptance list will be published before the TESAS Award list. The Post Courier reports on a statement by higher education department secretary mentioned that the 2021 acceptance list will be published in two parts
  • 2021 Acceptance List of School Leavers: formal list of all the students who will be enrolled for the first time at tertiary institutions in the country. 
  • TESAS Award List 2021: The final list of the students in 2021 acceptance list including their 'indicated' TESAS Award status.
DHERST indicated to have released the acceptance list on the second Friday of January 2021. This has not happened. 

We believe DHERST is working to get the 2021 acceptance list out to the public. Meanwhile, students, parents and citizens have to wait for the higher education department to make another announcement. 

The Post Courier reported that the TESAS Award list will be released in late January or February 2021. The reason being that 'DHERST will wait for all the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the country to confirm their selections listing before the final TESAS Award List comes out'.

Waiting for the HEIs in the country to send the confirmed list to DHERST can take ages. But, the Post Courier hinted that the final list could come out by late January or early February before the academic year starts.

Why Acceptance List 2021 Not Released, When Then?

Many students, parents and stakeholders were asking the same question, why was the list acceptance list 2021 not released on time. As mentioned, the process of selection, quality checks, confirming availability of spaces with HEIs, etc is challenging. DHERST must get it right so that they do not mess up the final acceptance list.

The final acceptance list for students to enrol at the universities (including the PNG Govt's scholarships details) should/will come out a few weeks before the academic year starts. 

If you are someone with a special circumstance (non-school leaver, school leaver, self-sponsored, etc ) and needed more time to prepare; make sure you mitigate the risks in good time before the academic year starts.

DHERST Selection Key Points

In a press release two years ago, the department of higher education said the students whose names appeared on the Grade 12 selection list must take note the three points
(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 2018]

 

Concerns if DHERST race past February

In the meantime, there is no need to worry, even February is approaching fast. Citizens and stakeholders must be patient. DHERST, since 2018, has done a fantastic job with the:
  • Online School Leavers Application (NOAS),
  • Online Selection System (NOSS),
  • Compiling and quality-checking the selection listings
  • Liaising with HEIs in the country, 
  • Publishing the acceptance listing for ALL the HEIs 

Of course, there should be concerns raised IF DHERST has gone past mid-February. But for now, the department needs all the support they can get from the PNG govt, institutions in the country, parents, citizens and stakeholders.

CONTENT STEALING NOTICE TO PNG INSIGHT READERS

  • 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 contents 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 origional 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 it 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 contents. 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 producer 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.

2021 tertiary selection list pdf

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).

How to quickly find a selected student on 2021 tertiary selection pdf list

1. Download the PDF file onto your device

2. Use the search button

3. Type in student’s SLF number

4. Search

5. Confirm the school against SLF #.

6. Confirm your scholarship/fee status.

DHERST TESAS LIST 2021

DHERST TESAS Award List | PNG Universities

Important update: 

  • #3 For the status updates of PNG universities acceptance list, click here.
  • #2 DHERST has not released the TESAS award list for universities. It is not clear why they have not met the deadline they set.
  • #1 As predicted in an earlier video (at the end of this article), DHERST has announced that the 2021 Tertiary Selection List will be released on Friday the 8th of January 2021. See the notice released by DHERST in this video:


2021 PNG Universities DHERST Selection Lists for all universities and other tertiary institutions should be live-online after the Grade 12 exam results are released by the National Department of Education (NDOE) on My PNG Exams Website. 

Grade 12 Students can start checking their Grade 12 online results on the 9th of December 2020. Here is how to check students examination results.

The 2021 Grade 12 selection list for PNG tertiary institutions will not be available immediately after the 9th of Dec 2020 (the date of release of the Grade 12 Online Results). It will take a few weeks to do the selections for each tertiary institution in the country. 

The final DHERST list fro 2021 will be published online, at the department of higher education website. We will let you know when the Tertiary Institutions selection comes out on the 8th of January 2021.


NDOE Results and DHERST Selections

First, the online result will come out, released by the NDOE, through the Measurement Servies Division (MSD). 

After that, the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHESRT) will use the marks to finalise their selections for PNG tertiary institutions; and make the selection listing for 2021 available on their website. 

Here is how the online results and selection works


TESAS Awards List - Universities

The Grade 12 selection for tertiary institutions in PNG, usually, comes out during the first week of January of the new year as seen in the last two years. For example, last year the DHERST TESAS Awards list for universities (and non-universities) came out on the 5th of January 2020.

However, there was a problem with the Grade 12 selection list for last year. The problem was fixed and the updated listed re-published on the 19th of January 2020.

Here is what DHERST said about the updated Grade 12 selections listing for tertiary institutions:

The Department of Higher Education Research Science & Technology (DHERST) wishes to advise students and higher education institutions (HEIs) that it has revised the previous TESAS awards for continuing students for 2020 academic year. The award list published on the DHERST website on the 5th of January 2020 is retracted due to some technical problems beyond our control. This has been rectified and scholarships rewarded to all eligible students. (DHERST Press release | 19/01/2020)


When will Grade 12 Selection list for 2021 be published?

Based on last years experience, we would infer that the selection list would be published late in December 2020 or early January 2021. Perhaps it is important to check DHERST website during the Christmas and New Year period for DHERST press releases regarding the Grade 12 tertiary institutions selections for 2021. 

(Please note that the date of release of the selection listing PDF has been announced - see above)


How to Confirm Grade 12 Students Selection and TESAS Status

The Grade 12 selection is done online and is quick. When the selection lists for all PNG Universities and non-universities are finalised, the DHERST publishes it on their website. Students, parents and stakeholders can download and check the Grade 12 student's status - whether they are selected or not!

Here is how to check the selection status (WITH VIDEO GUIDE). This article shows you how to use the Grade 12 student SLF number and search the downloaded PDF files, with ease :) So, check it out.
