My PNG Exam Slow: What to Do

The My PNG Exam Results.Com portal has been experiencing a significant increase in traffic, leading to slower response times and delays in accessing exam results. This surge in visitors can be attributed to the portal's popularity and the release of exam results. 

While the portal's infrastructure has been designed to handle regular traffic, the sudden influx of users has put a strain on its resources.

My PNG Exam Results.Com portal slow 

The My PNG Exam Results.Com portal's slow performance has caused delays and frustration for students seeking their exam results. Most websites on shared hosts and slow cloud servers often do not perform well under heavy traffic. 

A dedicated cloud server close to or within PNG can resolve this issue by providing exclusive resources, ensuring faster response times even during peak traffic. The education department should prioritise this migration to guarantee a seamless user experience for all.

Here are suggestions to help you check your exam results. 

Access your PNG exam results quickly and easily through the My PNG Exam Results platform, available at Get your exam results anytime, anywhere, and stay updated on all the latest information regarding PNG education.

2G/3G Network Users

If you're on a 2G network, it may be difficult or impossible to access the portal. Consider moving to an area with better network coverage, preferably near a telecom tower, to improve your connection. 

For those with a 3G or faster network, try accessing the portal during less congested periods, such as early mornings or late evenings.

My PNG Exam Result App

Smartphone users can now access their exam results with greater ease and efficiency by utilising the My PNG Exam Result App. This mobile application, available on the Google Play Store, offers a streamlined experience tailored specifically for mobile devices. 

Unlike accessing the portal through a web browser, the app significantly reduces loading times and provides a more stable connection, ensuring that you can quickly retrieve your results without the frustrating delays often encountered on the web portal.

Mobile-Laptop Hot-Spotting

If you need to access the portal on your laptop, consider using mobile data to hotspot the device. This method allows your laptop to connect to the internet through your mobile phone's data connection. 

While it may not be as stable as a dedicated internet connection, it can provide access to your exam results when alternative options are unavailable.

This uses up a lot of data, but it will work fast.

Best Practices for Optimal Performance

If the portal remains sluggish, try clearing the cache and cookies on your device before attempting to access it again. 

This simple step can often resolve temporary performance issues. Additionally, avoid refreshing the page excessively, as this can further slow down the portal.

Urgent Access for Grade 12 Students

For Grade 12 students, particularly those seeking admission to higher education institutions, accessing their exam results promptly is crucial. 

Knowing your exam results can provide valuable insights when adjusting your NOAS applications

If you have urgent needs, consider accessing the portal during off-peak hours or through the My PNG Exam Result App.

Patience and Understanding

The My PNG Exam Results.Com portal is currently experiencing congestion due to high traffic volume.

Please be patient and understanding as it will improve when internet traffic slows down. In the meantime, consider using the recommended alternative methods to access your exam results.

Impact of Grade 11 Selection 2023/2024

The General Education Services Division, a sister division of MSD, scheduled the Grade 11 selections for 2024 from the 4th - 8th of December 2023. However, with the release of the Grade 10 results pegged to the 8th of December, GES will have to re-schedule the Grade 11 selection. 

This means that GES selections for Grade 11 students to the National Schools of Excellence and Secondary Schools will start after the exam results come out. 

If you are a Grade 10 or Grade 12 student who wants to get your final marks (and Grades re-checked), here is how to do it.

My PNG Exam Results 2023: When to Expect Results

The National Department of Education in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is currently cleansing exam data for the 2023 Grade 10 and Grade 12 exams. This is a routine process to ensure the accuracy and reliability of results. Once the data cleansing process is complete, the results will be uploaded to the My PNG Exam Results website (

Important Dates 2023

The following are important dates related to the release of the 2023 Grade 10 and Grade 12 exam results and the selection process:

The release of the PNG Exam Results 2023 is the work of the Measurement Services Division (of the NDoE). They will make an announcement about when to check the exam results before (or during) the selections.

Update 02.12.2023: Education Department has announced the Grade 10 and Grade 12 Exam Result release date, get the details here.

Grade 11 & DHERST Selections Impacts on Results Release Dates

The release dates for Grade 10 and Grade 12 exam results have important implications for the selection process. MSD must meet the deadline set by its sister division, General Education Services, and Higher Education Department, DHERST.

Grade 11 selectors need the Grade 10 results before the 4th of December 2023 to begin the selection process for the 2024 academic year. Similarly, DHERST needs the Grade 12 results for selection, but more importantly, students need their results between the 12th and 15th of December 2023 to adjust their preferences during the NOAS Grace Period.

Therefore, the exam results must be released before the selections begin. Any delay in the release of the exam results will have ripple effects and cause delays in the release of the Grade 11 selection lists and DHERST Grade 12 Selection.

You can watch the video on the PNG Insight YouTube channel or the embedded video below. It shows Grade 10 and Grade 12 students how to login to the PNG Exam Results website and what to do with their results.

What does My PNG Exam results website do?

The PNG Exam Results website is an online platform for checking the Grade 10 and Grade 12 provisional exam marks. It also has the capability for MDS data officers and provincial exam coordinators can input data into the system - but these functions have not been fully utilised at present.

The online results website started in 2018. This year will be the 5th year running. 

In brief, exam data sheets enter the MSD office after marking Grade 10 and Grade 12 exams and also from the schools in the country. The Students' Data from the internal school-based assessments and external examinations are manually entered, checked, re-checked and finalised for the final Grade 10 and Grade 12 results.

It is intensive work that the MSD officers and schools do to ensure all the marks, grades and certificates are ready.

My PNG Exam Result Website (

An external developer controls the backhand of the Exam Results website. They upload the Grade 10 and Grade 12 students' examination data files to the website. This happens after MSD's checks and balances. It is the final step before the students can check their results online.

MSD does most of the work as it is its responsibility.

Notably, the website's URL does not have like the NDoE website ( and other government departments do. 

As mentioned, the platform belongs to the NDoE and houses the Grade 12 and Grade 10 examination data. But, hosted on a different WEB-HOST and URL.

It is a matter for the education department to localise the HOST and URL. Hence, localising the students' data.

When is PNG Grade 10 and Grade 12 results coming out?

From past experience, the Grade 10 and Grade 12 results usually come out at the same time, in December every year. It is a time-bound activity that the education department (NDoE) had to get it right so that the higher education department (DHERST) could do the Grade 12 selection on time.

MSD gives the results to the Grade 11 selection committee and DHERST. They will use the results for the 2023 Grade 11 selection and Grade 12 selections.

The students can access their PNG Exam Results 2023 when (as soon as) the Grade 11 and Grade 12 selections are happening.

PNG Written Expression Papers and 2024 Dates

The Grade 10 and 12 students do their Written Expression Examination (WEX) every year in June and August, respectively.

The Written Expression Examination for 2024 is as follows:

  • Lower Secondary School Certificate Written Expression (Grade 10): Thursday, June 6, 2024
  • Upper Secondary School Certificate Written Expression Exam (Grade 12): Monday, August 5, 2024
  • See the national exam dates for Grades 8, 10 and 12

Where to get the Written Expression Exam Papers?

The WEX past exam papers are available in schools. You will have used the past year's paper in your Mock Exam. 

So, in preparation for your Grade 10 (or Grade 12) WEX papers (which is your first proper national examination), you should ask your English and Literature teacher for a copy.

This will help you familiarise yourself with the type of reading materials (scripts)  and format that you are likely to come across in the real exam.

Who sets the Written Expression Examinations?

The Department of Education, through the Measurement Services Division, sets the WEX for Grade 10. 

The Grade 12 WEX is set by an external (English and Literature) subject expert from the University of Goroka.

The Education department depends on provincial education officials and schools to conduct the examinations.  

Students have been encouraged to give their best in honesty and let their talents shine through.

png grade 12 written expression exam papers 2024

How do markers mark the Written Expression?

Selected English teachers mark the Grade 10 written expression exam papers in each province. On completion, the provincial examination officer in the province sends the marks to the MSD office in Port Moresby. 

As for the Grade 12 WEX, the MSD selects English and Literature teachers from each province as markers. The markers go to Port Moresby for a week to mark the WEX papers.

They mark the WEX papers in regional groups - Southern, Momase, New Guinea Islands and Highlands.

It is an intensive marking where the papers undergo several checks before the final marks are awarded to each script.

Grade 10 & 12 Written Expression concerns

Provincial authorities and schools have to run a fair and cheat-free written expression examination. 

The education department often encouraged local education authorities to be vigilant and security conscious from the storage in school to the actual completion of the Examination. 

To ensure the smooth running of the examination, the Head Teachers, Principals and Deputies are advised to remain within the school campus during the conduct of all Examinations.

However, many principals, headteachers and deputies tend to leave the school grounds on exam days.

Who ensures cheat-free exams in PNG?

The following provincial education officials and school heads are responsible for a cheat-free and fair Grade 10 and Grade 12 written expression examination, nationwide.

  • Provincial Education Advisers, 
  • Provincial Examination Supervisors, 
  • Senior Secondary Schools’ Inspectors, 
  • Guidance Officers, 
  • Principals of Secondary Schools
  • Head Teachers of all Provincial High Schools.

For the Grade 10 and Grade 12 students sitting the National Written Expression Examinations this year, we wish you 'all the best!'

Alternative Pathways

However, it's important to note that some students may explore alternative options, such as enrolling in programs like the Flexible Open and Distance Education (FODE), or in some cases, returning to their hometowns to pursue other avenues. Each student's unique circumstances and aspirations play a role in determining the path they choose.

Overall, this period is marked by anticipation and optimism as students in Papua New Guinea strive to continue their educational journey and unlock new opportunities for personal and academic growth.

Grade 10 National Exam Results and Selections

The Grade 10 national yearly exam results are usually released just before the Grade 11 Selection Conference on the first week of December.

The 2024 Selection lists for National High and Secondary Schools are, likely, to be published 2 weeks after the release of the results. That means that the selection committee will take a week to finalize the selection, and the education department will take another week to publish the list.

Here we take a look at why the Education Department needs to set the publication dates for the Release of Exam Results and Grade 11 Selection Lists, read about it here.

Grade 12 National Exam Results

The Education Department through the MSD will release the 2023 Grade 12 exam results to the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science, and Technology (DHERST) around the second week of December.

The Education Department (MSD) conducts the exams, coordinates marking, compiles students' exam marks and sends them to DHERST.

DHERST then uses the marks to select students for higher institutions.

2024 Grade 12 Selections Date

The Grade 12 students can check their examination results on/around December via the Education Department's (NDoE/MSD) website called My PNG Exam Results. This year the results came out on the 8th of December 2023.

Note that DHERST does not process the marks. DHERST usually takes less than a week to process the selection listings for tertiary institutions in the country.

It works in collaboration with universities, colleges, and other tertiary institutions to do the selection. But, first, the institutions MUST tell DHERST their quota - how many students they will accept for the academic year 2024.

So, unless the institutions provide the quotas on time DHERST will not release the listing.

It is important to note that the higher institutions NOT sending the quotas often resulted in delays.

2024 Grade 9 Selection List

The Grade 8 exam marking, results, and Grade 9 selection are the responsibility of the respective provinces. The Department of Education passed this responsibility to the provinces.

The education department will send the Grade 8 certificates to the schools/provinces before the end of December every year. However, many provinces have failed to issue Grade 8 certificates to students.

Read about this failure and how the Education authorities Do the Grade 9 Selections.
