DHERST 2021/2022 Online Selection Fact File

The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) clearly differentiated between the 2022 Grade 12 Online Exam Results and 2022 Grade 12 school leavers online selections. 

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

The message below is DHERST's explanation of the two selection processes. 

"We wish to inform and clarify to the general public that the publishing and or release of Grade 12 Results is the responsibility of the Measurement Service Division of the National Department of Education and NOT the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST).

The National Online Application Systems (NOAS) is a separate system developed by DHERST for Grade 12 students to apply for further studies. The NOAS is not currently used for publishing Grade 12 Results, but rather to allow Grade 12 students to finalize their choices for further studies.


The National Department of Education have recently launched a separate system and website to access Grade 10 and 12 final results. To obtain Grade 12 final marks, please contact the National Department of Education or check their website. [DHERST Support Service, Facebook 06/12/2018].

In fact, two education departments are facilitating the Grade 12 results and online School Leavers Application (SLA) at this time of the year. 


First, the results - both Grade 10 and 12 results - are the works of the Measurement Services Division (MSD) of the National Education Department. 


Anything to do with the RESULTS is through this web address mypngexamresults.com. Perhaps it is important to know that the results are only provisional. That means that the results and other details like name-spelling that may have errors are subject to final changes.

Second, the Grade 12 online selection for the tertiary institution is the work of DHERST. And, 2022 online selection to tertiary institutions in the country comes under DHERST. This web address (https://apply.dherst.gov.pg) links to online applications and services the higher education department provides.

Fact files: Number of students year-by-year

  • DHERST online selection began in 2017. So, the 2021 Grade 12 online selection will be the 5th year of implementation. Students going to tertiary institutions in forecasted to remain at 2018 figure of ~12000 - 13000 students. 
  • 30711 Grade 12 students completed school in 2020, up nearly 1500 students from 2019. No significant increase in the number of students entering tertiary institutions in PNG.
  • A total of 29,000 Grade 12 students did the exams in 2019. An increase of nearly 5000 spaces from 2018 
  • A total of 12,234 students were selected to commence the 2018 academic year (47% of the 25,848 who applied)

Fact file: DHERST and MSD Online result and selection systems

  • MSD's inaugural online platform is for checking Grade 10 and Grade 12 results. It was implemented in 2018.
  • Only two student's preferences on the SLA in 2017 (5 preferences in 2018, 2019 and 2020)
  • Students with a GPA of 2.3 or above were considered for selection in 2017 for 2018 entry to Higher Learning Institutions. The same for the 2018 selection for 2019 and the 2019 selection for 2020.
  • The students selected via the DHERST online application platform are NOT automatically awarded a PNG government's TESAS scholarship (HECAS or AES). ONLY those who receive a scholarship award letter are on TESAS. 
  • SELF-SPONSORED STUDENTS - if you are selected but you did not receive the award letter from DHERST, consider yourself a self-sponsored student.

DHERST Online Selection Updates

For the Grade 12 students or parents wanting more information on this year's selection, the best place to get the latest news online is the DHERST website (dherst.gov.pg) or Facebook page. 

Re-posted below is the first reminder released by dherst.gov.pg in regards to the Grade 12 online choices and selections.

___________
(1) As of 1st December 2018, your 5 Choices are locked in. In the event that you have not filled in your 5 Choices, you can still have a final chance on the 10th - 11th December 2018 (48 hours) to make your final changes to your choices.

(2) REMEMBER, although your 5 Choices are locked, you CAN still log into your NOAS account and it is important that you double-check that you have filled in ALL of your MyData information. Applications Close entirely on 11th December 2018 at 11.59pm.

(3) If you are applying for a Study Program at PNG University of Technology or the University of Goroka, you are then required to have taken the STAT-P examinations and therefore you must enter your STAT-P ID in the MyData Section. If you do not enter this, Selectors at PNG UoT and UoG will not have access to your STAT-P scores and you will then miss your chance to be selected.

3204 Students Selected to 6 Main PNG Universities - No Significant Increase in Spaces

The Grade 12 Online Selection 2018 (for tertiary institutions) in the country can be described as the best change the DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) has implemented. The result of the selection process had shown that the method was time-and-money saving, fast and efficient. 

We also provide some background information of the 6 PNG universities here. Find out about the admissions and selections  for UPNG, UOG, UNRE, Unitech, DWU and PAU:



Tables below contained raw data compiled from the 2018 selection document (PDF) published on DHERST website. The raw data simply aims to show readers and stakeholders the number of spaces (and the spaces available per program of study) at the 6 universities.

Perhaps it is important to know that no significant increase in the number of spaces had been observed across the 6 main universities.

For example, previous records indicated 594 students in 2016, 495 students in 2017 and 599 students selected in 2018 to UNITECH Lae three Campus; and 286 students in 2016, 297 students in 2017 and 280 students in 2018 selected to Divine Word University four campus. In fact, spaces at universities remain relatively the same. 

*Note that this is the online selection done by DHERST - not by the universities. Each selected student will be issued the offer letter and formally invited to the 2018 academic year at the selected university. 

**Also note that figure 3204 does NOT include other tertiary institutions in the country. It is indicative of the 6 universities mentioned here.
