2022 Grade 12 Students SLF Grace Period - Why GP is Important

 2022 DHERST GRACE PERIOD: Present Grade 12 students are in a privileged position to make the right choices for their Grade 12 School Leavers. They can adjust their choices based on their exam marks, unlike in the past.

DHERST Online Application 2022 (NAOS)

Firstly, the National Online Application System (NOAS) gives the students the right choice upfront by highlighting (in red) the 'ineligible' options. 

There is no room for getting the choices wrong. Secondly, the students have 5 choices. That means 5 chances of getting into a tertiary institution. 

In the past, Grade 12 students did not have the chance to change their choices after they've filled out the manual School Leaver's Form (SLF). Nor do the past students have 5 choices, they were limited to only 3 choices.

The Grade 12 students should make full use of the Grace period and maximise their chances of securing a space for 2023 at a tertiary institution in the country.

Important Dates and Expectations

Here are some important dates for examinations, results and selections in Papua New Guinea based on past year's dates

Here are some important dates for examinations, results and selections in Papua New Guinea:

  • Tuesday 21st December 2021: DHERST launches 2021 selection for the 2022 academic year
  • Tuesday 14th - Friday 17th December 2021: NOAS grace period
  • Sunday 12th December 2021: Education Department through MSD releases Grade 12 Exam Results to Higher Education Department, DHERST.
  • Thursday 9th December 2021: Grade 10 and 12 Exam Results Launched, students can check their results now.

  • 5th December 2021: Education Officers/GES start 2022 Grade 11 Selections (GRADE 11 SELECTION NOW IN PROGRESS)
These were the dates for 2021/2022. The 2023 dates are either likely to fall around the same time or differ by a few days.

2022 PNG Schools Exam Dates

  • Grade 10 National Examinations: 10th to 14th October 2022.
  • Grade 12 National Examinations:  17th to 21st October 2022.
  • Grade 8 National Examinations: 24th to the 27th of October 2022
Based on the dates above we can infer that the 2022/2023 Grade 11 selection lists will be released on the first or second week of December 2023.

2022 Grace Period - Why it is important

The Grace period lasts only 5 days. 

This is the time when Grade 12 students should 'adjust' their choices. It should be straightforward because DHERST would have indicated on NOAS whether a student is eligible for selection or not depending on the examination marks. 

Here is what DHERST say about the importance of the Grace Period:

''This [Grace Period] is a crucial period where you will start making your choices based on your final grade 12 results hence make sure to access your account during the mentioned dates. If you see the red highlight indicated in any of your five choices under “My Choices”, this means that your final result has not met the minimum program requirement set by the institution. Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.'' DHERST

The online selection is quick. The Grade 12 students in the country have around 4/5 days to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. 

DHERST will NOT grant you access to making changes during the weekend or the next Monday of the following week to make any changes.

This Grade period's due date is final.

Launching 2022 selections for 2023 academic year

The online selection via DHERST's National Online Selections System (NOSS) will do the magic in 3 days. 

DHERST may launch the 2022 selections for the 2023 academic year the week following the Grade Period's due date. possibly on Tuesday of that week.  

There were issues last year when the Department of Higher Education had to republish the selection listing. 

If all goes to plan this year, students are likely to see their selection status by the date announced by DHERST. We hope all goes to plan.

Launching of DHERST 2023 selection lists for universities and non-universities often come out on Tuesday of the following week. Check this space for any latest on the Grade 12 Grade Period and the launching of 2023 selection lists.
