How Does 2023 Grade 11 Selection Take Place?

We received a lot of questions about the 2023 Grade 11 Selection so this article will help you understand what is actually happening. PNG Insight provides some insights into how the Grade 11 selection takes place over the years. 

Note that the times are based on past writer's experiences and observations - they may change depending on the education department's present circumstances.

How Grade 11 selection happens 

The yearly grade 11 selections take place in four stages. 

The selections start in the provinces after the Grade 10 examinations and culminate in Port Moresby where the results come out to students, parents, schools and stakeholders.

Stage 1: Release of Grade 10 Exam Results

The Measurement Services Division (Education Department) releases the Grade 10 results to the member of the provincial and national Grade 11 selection committee.

Stage 2: Grade 11 selection in Port Moresby

The selection committee takes about two weeks to select Grade 11 students for National High and Secondary Schools. 

This provincial Grade 11 selection committee works with the General Education Services of the Education Department to do the selection.

Stage 3: Education secretary sights the selection list

GES takes the list to the Education Secretary to sight and sign. This can take a couple of days to a week.

Stage 4: GES/ICT division publish Grade 11 selection list

The GES works with the ICT Division to upload the file onto the Education Department website. This is a one-day work but can take up to a week to complete.

The selection committee and three divisions (MSD, GES and ICT) of the Education Department work together to bring the Grade 11 selection list to you. 

So, there you have it. 


When will the 2023 Grade 11 Selection list come out?

The General Education Services (GES) of the National Department of Education and Education Secretary will give you the answer to the question.

The Measurement Services Division will release the Exam Results for Grade 10 to the GES and Grade 11 selectors, usually on the first week of December every year. 

This is Stage 1 of the 2023 Grade 11 selection.

From past experience, the actual selection can take two weeks - we mentioned in this article.  This is Stage 2 of Selection where the selectors meet in Port Moresby and finalise the Grade 11 Lists. 

By stage 2, your principals and provincial education officers should have the name list of their respective schools.

Last year's selections (2021 Grade 11 Selection List) came out on the 23rd of December 2021. There was a delay of 1 week.

Expect the 2023 Grade 11 Selection List for all Provinces to be published around the same time. 

How will Education Dept Publish Grade 11 List 2023?

The General Education Services and ICT Divisions normally make the Grade 11 selection list available in PDF according to the Regions and Schools. 

Since last year, GES/ICT Divisions have attempted to try a *LOGIN* system but they did not carry it through due to a lack of technical capacity, we believe. 

Neither GES nor ICT said anything about it, so you just have to wait and see what happens this year.

What's Happening Right Now

Right now, we believe the Grade 11 Selection Committee is getting ready to finalise the selection lists.

Parents, guardians and students will have to wait till the secretary sights and signs the Grade 11 listings for 2023 (mentioned in Stage 3); and for GES and ICT to publish the list online (Stage 4). 

You know the stages and how long it takes for selection to take place. 


We hope that answers some of your questions.
