Grade 12 Selections 2022 for 2023 DHERST NOAS Admission Pool

The Grade 12 students in PNG can check their NOAS selection status to find out if they have been selected in one of their five choices. The Grade 12 Selections 2022 for the 2023 academic year - NOAS Status Check - is live. Also, the DHERST Grade 12 School Leavers selection and Non-school Leavers Selection list are out.

Note that DHERST TESAS (HECAS & AES) Status list will be published on the 3rd week of January according to DHERST. That is the important list that indicates students' scholarship status. Join PNG Insight on YouTube as we bring the latest updates on education and development in PNG.

Grade 12 Selections 2022 for 2023 - selection list PDF

DHERST NOAS Admission Pool

It is important to confirm your selection to a higher institution as soon as you can. If you are not selected in one of your five choices, you may be put in the admission pool. 

If you are a student on DHERST's admission pool, you'll have to log in to your National Online Selection Account between now and before the academic year 2023 starts to see if you have been offered a placement at a university or college in PNG.

Students in the admission pool have to hope that they are considered for 6,000+ spaces, formally called quotas.

So, keep checking to see if you are one of the lucky ones from the admission pool admitted to a university or college.

Questions about Grade 12 Selections 2022

Here are some questions PNG Insight receives about selections, GPA and Admission Pool for Tertiary Institutions in PNG. We pick three common questions that many students ask and put answers to them.

Important: Note that the answers are based on experience over the years, intended to give clarity to the questions. It is in no way formal advice.
Q. I am not selected and I was put in an admission pull, will the DHERST select me according to my choices?
Brief answer: If you are in the DHERST Admission Pool, it means that you are likely to be considered IF there is a space available in the institution of your choice. Also, your GPA has to be higher than the other students in the pool to maximise your chance of being selected.

Q. I got a GPA of 2.6 and I was not selected by any of those five institutions where I should have been selected because I know that the nursing school's in the country have a minimum GPA of 2.4 and above. Why can't a GPA of 2.6 can be also selected?
Brief answer: Your GPA doesn't automatically guarantee you a selection to one of your 5 choices. Though it is the main selection criteria, there must be a spot available for you to be selected. Also, there are other students who may have a GPA above 2.6 applying to the same institutions or they may have made your second choice their first choice. They have the advantage over you. In the meantime, login to your NOAS Student Account before the academic year starts to confirm your final selection status from the Admission Pool.

Q. My GPA is 2.4 and yet I applied for teachers colleges in PNG that require a current GPA of 2.4 and above. Why I am not selected with such a GPA?
Brief answer: The current GPA of 2.4 for teachers' college is the threshold which is the borderline GPA. If you have a GPA close to the borderline GPA, you are last in the queue during the actual selection and also last in the queue in the Admission Pool. It's sad but true. Those students who have GPAs higher than the threshold with first-choice preference have a higher chance of being selected than those sitting at the borderline GPA.

Grade 12 Selections 2022 NOAS Status Check

As you read the three questions, you may have realised that the best thing to do is to get the five choices on NOAS right - spot on.

For now, if you are in DHERST Admission Pool, make sure you check your status regularly to see if there are any changes to your selection status. 

Also, check the final lists that come out on the DHERST website. 

The institution you apply to will publish its acceptance lists. You may want to check that too.

All in all, your NOAS student account is the right place to confirm your selection. If you have any questions about selections, please leave a comment below.

2023 PNG Exam Results

2023 PNG Universities DHERST Selection List for all universities and other tertiary institutions should be live after DHERST publish the PDF file online.

The 2023 Grade 12 selection list for PNG tertiary institutions will not be available immediately after the release of the Grade 12 Online Results. It will take a few days for DHERST to do the online selections for each tertiary institution in the country. 

The final DHERST list will be published online in PDF format. We will let you know when the Tertiary Institutions selection comes out usually 3 - 5 days after the release of Grade 10 and 12 exam results.

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 work

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.

However, there were administrative problems with the Grade 12 selections in 2020 and 2021. The problems were fixed and the selection lists were updated and released to the public.

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 the 2023 Selection list be published?

Based on last year's experience, we would infer that the selection list would be published late in December 2022 or early January 2023. Perhaps it is important to check the DHERST website during the Christmas and New Year period for DHERST press releases regarding the Grade 12 tertiary institutions selections for 2021. 

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.

2022/2023 DHERST Grade 12 Selection - Stats that Matter

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR READERS: PNG Insight compiles that data year-on-year on this page to give readers a good idea about the number of grade 12 students in the country.

2022 selected students on tertiary scholarships

The 2022 Grade 12 Selection list is likely to be in one PDF file (like the past years' lists); and easy to check the selected students to tertiary institutions in the country. 

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 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 Higher Education Contribution Assistance Scheme) or 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 2019 - 2021 are given below.

DHERST Selection Key Points

DHERST announced 3 points that selected students to Tertiary institutions should take note of. 

In a press release, the department of higher education said the students whose names appeared on the Grade 12 selection list must take note of the following:
(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 ( and check MyStatus section any time before the 22nd December 2018 for further details on how to access your scholarship. [DHERST , Press Release 2019]

2022 DHERST tertiary selection list pdf

It can be fiddly to identify a student's name in 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 the 2022 DHERST 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.

Grade 12 selected students NOT on tertiary institutions scholarship

It is perhaps important to note that about 50% of the Grade 12 student names on the Grade 12 selection list are NOT awarded a government scholarship (AES or HECAS) last year. 

They are, therefore, classified as self-sponsored students. (Here is a list of ideas about what to do to get a scholarship if you are a self-sponsored student).

But, what if a student's name is completely NOT on the Grade 12 selection list?  Here is what DHERST had to say about it in 2019:
We would like to inform you that your application has now been moved into the NOSS Admissions Pool. 
In the event that a higher education institution was not able to achieve 100 percent yield in the National Selections, your application may be considered from within the NOSS Admissions Pool. Should this happen, please log in to the NOAS ( and check MyStatus section prior to 31st December 2018. 
Also take note that in the event that a selected Grade 12 school leaver does not accept his/her admission offer, your application may also be considered from within the National Admissions’ Pool. Should this happen, please log in to the NOAS ( and check MyStatus section throughout February of 2019. 
If you have not achieved a GPA above 2.0 it may NOT be likely that your application will be considered from within the National Admission Pool. It is therefore highly recommended that you consider upgrading your marks with an intent to re-apply for further studies as a Non-School Leaver. Do not give up![DHERST , Press Release 2019]

DHERST Online Selection - Grade 12 Online Exam Results vs Grade 12 Online Selections

The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) clearly differentiated between the Grade 12 Online Exam Results and 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 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, the online selection to tertiary institutions in the country comes under DHERST. 

This web address ( 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 was 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)

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 did not receive the award letter from DHERST, consider yourself a self-sponsored student.
