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.

First Assistant Secretary of the Measurement Services Division of the Education Department, Arulappan Packiam, said that his division is still conducting quality checks and data entry to ensure that students receive accurate marks.

MSD plans to publish the 2023 Grade 10 and Grade 12 exam results on the scheduled date which is the 8th of December, 2023.

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.

The Grade 12 students will have plenty of time to adjust their choices on the National Online Application System (NOAS).

As soon as students see their results, they can log in to their NOAS accounts and adjust their school leavers' choices by checking their ''My Back Up Programmes" and "My Eligible Programmes". Read about the difference between these two choices here.

Fr Jan Czuba, Acting Secretary of the Higher Education, Research and Science Technology Department (DHERST), stated that tertiary student selections would be made after receiving Grade 12 exam results from the Education Department.

In conclusion, the release of the My PNG Exam Results 2023 for Grade 10 and Grade 12 is eagerly awaited by students and parents. The Education Department is working diligently to ensure that the results are accurate and published on the scheduled date of the 8th of December.

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.

Grade 10 Exam, Release of Exam Results, and Grade 11 Selection 2024

The Grade 10 exam and Grade 11 selection process in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is an important moment for students. It is when they find out if they can go to Grade 11. 

The release of Grade 10 exam results and the Grade 11 selection is a three-month long process that involves many different people, including the Department of Education, school principals, and provincial representatives. 

This article will explain the timeline of events, the selection criteria, and why this process is so important for students, parents, and guardians. 

2023 Exam Results, and Grade 11 Selection 2024

Timeline of Events: Grade 10 Exam, Exam Results, and Grade 11 Selection

Here is a step-by-step timeline of the key events related to the Grade 10 exam results and Grade 11 selection process:

October: National Examinations

  • Grade 10 students across PNG take their national exams in October each year.
  • The week after the exams, selected Grade 10 teachers in each province mark the exams and record the students' scores.
  • Provincial Examination Supervisors (PESs) and provincial marking committees coordinate the making in each province
  • The PES sends the Grade 10 results to the Measurement Services Division of the National Education Department in Port Moresby.

November: Data Checks and Release of PNG Grade 10 Exam Results

In November, the Measurement Services Division (MSD) of the Department of Education checks the Grade 10 students' scores to make sure they are accurate.

This is a very important step because it makes sure that the student's information is correct before the results are released to the selections.

Once the MSD has checked the scores, they release the results for Grade 10 students to the Grade 11 selection committee and also publish the results online.

This year (2023), the Grade 11 National Selection will take place 4th  - 8th of December, 2023, according to the Education Department. But with the exam results coming out on the 8th of December, the selection will take place after the scheduled date. Stay in touch on PNG Insight as we bring you the details.

December: Grade 11 Selection

Two key education entities are involved in the Grade 11 selection process: the General Education Services (GES) of the Department of Education, and school principals or provincial representatives.

  • The MSD processes the Grade 10 exam results and makes them available online.
  • The GES and principals use these results to select students for Grade 11.
  • The selection process can take up to two weeks to finish.
  • Once the selection process is finished, the GES publishes the Grade 11 selection list on the Department of Education's website.

Grade 11 Selection: Weighted-Score System vs. Circumstance

Weighted-Score System

The weighted-score system is the primary method for selecting students for Grade 11 in Papua New Guinea. Students are assigned a weighted score based on their performance on the Grade 10 national exams, with higher scores given to more difficult subjects. Students with the highest weighted scores are selected for Grade 11, regardless of their province or other circumstances.

Watch this video to find out how the Education Department uses this system to select students.

Selection by Circumstance

In addition to the weighted score system, there are several other factors that can influence the selection of students for Grade 11. PNG Insight lists the 5 main factors below.

Academic performance: 

A student's academic performance on the Grade 10 national exams is still a very important factor in the selection process, even if they are selected based on circumstance. 

Number of spaces available: 

There are only a limited number of spaces available in secondary and national high schools.  Students may miss out on selection for Grade 11 even if they do not have the highest weighted scores.

Parental requests: 

Parents and guardians can write to school principals to explain why they want their child to go to a particular school. Principals may consider parental requests when selecting students for Grade 11, but they are not obligated to do so.

Special circumstances: 

In some cases, special circumstances such as family reasons or job transfers may allow principals to select students for Grade 11 at their schools. Principals may consider special circumstances when selecting students for Grade 11, but they are not obligated to do so.

Student preferences: 

Students can indicate their preferences for secondary and national high schools on their School Leavers Forms (SLF). Principals may consider student preferences when selecting students for Grade 11, but they are not obligated to do so.

Significance of the Grade 10 Exam and Grade 11 Selection Process

The Grade 10 exam and Grade 11 selection process is a very important event in the lives of PNG students, parents, and guardians. The outcome of this process determines a student's eligibility to continue their secondary education and pursue their academic dreams.

For students, the Grade 10 exam and Grade 11 selection process is a crucial milestone in their academic journeys. It is a time for them to reflect on their academic progress and set goals for the future. It is also a time for them to seek support from their parents, teachers, and mentors.

For parents and guardians, the Grade 10 exam and Grade 11 selection process is a time of great anticipation and anxiety. They want their children to succeed and have the best possible opportunities for the future. However, they are also aware of the challenges that their children may face in the competitive selection process.


The Grade 10 exam and Grade 11 selection process in Papua New Guinea is a critical event that shapes the academic journeys of students. The transparency and fairness of this process, along with the dedication of educational authorities, ensure that deserving students receive the opportunities they need to achieve their goals in life.



This information is based on PNG Insight's in-depth understanding of the exam process and workings of the education department's exams and selection process over the years. We are not affiliated with the education department, nor do we represent the department.

The education department does not publish the exact date for the release of the exam results and the Grade 11 selection list in the Education Calendar. It only announces the date when the results and selection lists are ready. That means that you will have to depend on news, social media, and PNG education website for the latest on Grade 10 (and Grade 8 and 12) results and selection.

Is removing Grades 8 and 10 exams a mistake?

The PNG Education Ministry and Education Department are embarking on a 10-year plan to address the growing number of students at schools and reduce the cost of educating them. 

First, let's be reminded of the past lessons:

Remember the curricular and education structural changes - SBC to OBE to SBC, and the 6-4-2 to 2-6-4 to 1-6-6?
These changes were unnecessary and a waste of time and money; and have long-term dominoe effects.

PNG Grade 8 and 10 exam results
Read my post-graduate work on Education and Development in PNG.

What is changing?

The education department has already planned to phase out - remove - the Grade 10 and 8 exams and introduce what is called National Education Quality Assessment Testing

The details of this test are not clear. In fact, no one knows how to carry out this kind of large-scale assessment. It has never been done successfully at Grade 8 and 10 levels, how the Education Ministry and Education Department are going about it is sketchy. 

It is exactly the repeat of past years - the blind (Edu Ministry) leading the dumb (Edu Dept). Sorry to say this, but not sorry it's true.

Again, the PNG politicians, education ministers and senior education officials just need to look back and see the mistakes in the last 20 years (yes, in their lifetime) so that they do not repeat the same mistakes.

In this important change, the students will continue to Grade 12 without taking the normal/external exams in Grades 8 and 10. There'll be only 1 exam in Grade 12.

Changes are good but why change an assessment that works fine? 

  • Just imagine if the SBC was not changed in 1992/1993. The PNG education curriculum would have been far better than it is today.
  • What would the education structure be like if the 6-4-2 was not changed to 2-6-4?
Obviously, no one would be talking about changing them back if these changes have not taken place 25 years ago.

The two points are wishful thinking. The damage has been done. But we know there were people (Papua New Guineans in Politics and Education circles) who did not have the brain to say:


Is removing exams a mistake?

Removing examinations at Grade 8 and 10 is going to shake the foundation of the Education System in PNG, no doubt. 

The PNG govt and the education advisors have got it wrong in the past. The 6-4-2 to 2-6-4 to the proposed 1-6-6 structural re-adjustment is one example of an unnecessary change. Another example of an unnecessary change in the curriculum change we saw lately, SBE to OBE to SBE.

There are many other changes that should not have happened in the FIRST PLACE. Removing a perfectly working examination at Grade 8 and 10 is a case of destroying what works well. 

As a country, we do not want to continue with it for some years and regret it.

Why remove exams at Grade 8 and 10?

The main reason is that the PNG govt cannot effectively conduct exams - it just costs too much. Furthermore, there are too many students in schools dropping out at Grade 8 and Grade 10 - the govt wants them to have a Grade 12 education. 

However, these are not good reasons to remove examinations (external assessments) and instead opt for classroom-based assessments. 


You see, this kind of assessment will save the govt money, but it is not as effective as it is intended to be. At present, the education department cannot rely on the internal assessment marks schools sent to Waigani.

They need the external assessment which is the Grade 8 and 10 exams.

Exams and Assessments

The parents and stakeholders need to know that the education department does *not* have to remove the exam and replace it with another assessment called National Education Quality Assessment Testing

Both can work side by side. 

There are already these kinds of literacy and numeracy (L&N)  assessments at Grades 3, 5 and 7: in the Pacific this assessment is called PILNA; in PNG there is an assessment called CSMT; and in Australia, they have what is called NAPLAN. 

These are broad-based  (literacy and numeracy competency) assessments that run alongside the main examinations.

Though these external L&N assessments are different in design and purpose, they are fundamental pillars of measuring learning. 

Therefore, removing one and replacing it with another IS NOT the right thing to do!

What you can do?

This change will affect you and your children in 20 - 50 years time. You have a responsibility to share this message and make sure everyone knows what is happening.

Talk about it now.

We cannot wait 20 years to realise it's too obvious and change things back.

Classroom assessments are NOT Exams

PNG Education Ministry and Education Department are terrible at making changes. This change - removing Grades 8 and 10 exams - should be considered carefully.

All in all, the reasons for removing the exams do not justify the need to continue with the exams at Grades 8 and 10.

Exams are pillars of a 'sustainable' education system.
Comment and share your thoughts about the planned removal of Grade 8 and 10 exams.

Top Performing Schools in PNG 2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019

Since 2016, the National Department of Education has taken pride in announcing the ranks of the Top Performing Schools in PNG. Each school in the country ranks according to its performance in the national examination. 

top performing secondary schools and national high schools in PNG

Ranking the Top Performing Schools in PNG

The education department ranks the schools as the top 10 performing schools based on how well the students perform in the exams. Also, the department recognises schools that have signs of improvement over the years. 

A school can rank among the top-performing schools or as the most improved school. 

 Mean Rating Index, MRI,

The department uses what is called the Mean Rating Index, MRI, to convert students' Grades to percentages  (out of 100%) or decimals (out of 1.0). 

In simple terms, the more As (in Grade 12) or Distinctions (in Grade 10) the higher the MRI a school gets. 

The schools are then sorted in order to pick out the top-performing schools in the country.

The list of 2023 top performing schools available here.

Most improved schools 

The most improved schools are those that show signs of improvement as compared to their past performances. 

It is a good indicator of improved teaching and learning introduced recently. It is done to acknowledge and recognise a school's achievements.

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.

Grade 12 DHERST Selections 2024

PNG Insight has been following the Grade 12 DHERST National Online Selection System (NOSS) since it started in 2017/2018 and knows that online selection is the best thing spearheaded by the former higher education secretary.
In the years 2020 & 2021, there were administrative errors that caused a lot of inconvenience. Some of you will remember that the selection lists were recalled, updated and republished - this should be avoided. 
NOSS is fast. It takes just hours for the selection to be done automatically online. The results can be available the next day.
As mentioned earlier, the Education Department will release the Grade 12 results to DHERST early in December 2023. (the exact date is yet to be confirmed). The higher education department will then verify the data from the education department before uploading it onto NOSS for the selection to take place.

What DHERST say about the Grace Period 2023

DHERST emphasises that students should access their NOAS accounts during the grace period. This period is crucial as it is when students will begin making their choices based on their final grade 12 results. 

It is important for students to ensure that they log in to their NOAS accounts within the specified dates. 

During this time, if any of the five choices listed under "My Choices" are highlighted in red, it indicates that the student's final result does not meet the minimum program requirement set by the institution. 

In such cases, students are required to change the red highlighted choice to a different program available in their program list.

Upon obtaining your Grade 10 or 12 exam results for the PNG 2023, it is important to prioritise securing and maintaining your exam results. Here's a step-by-step guide to ensure the proper handling of your exam results:

1. Download and Secure Your Results: Proactively download the PDF document containing your exam results. Save it securely on your personal device, either a smartphone or a computer. Avoid relying on screenshots, as they lack the permanence and authenticity required for official purposes.

2. Enhance Documentation and Credibility: Present the downloaded PDF to your parents, teachers, and school principal. Request the principal's signature and stamp to validate the authenticity of your results. These documents will be crucial for Grade 11 selections and tertiary school admissions. Obtaining the principal's endorsement strengthens your position in case of any discrepancies or inquiries.

3. Prioritise Account Security: Immediately change your My PNG Exam Results account password to a strong and unique combination that only you know. Refrain from sharing your password details or your exam results with anyone, maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information.

4. Access Support Services: If you encounter any difficulties or need assistance accessing your exam results, reach out to your family, headteachers or the National Department of Education (NDoE) for support. 

What to do if you STILL need access to website?

If you cannot log in, try to interchange your surname and given name, and check your SLF number. If you have three names and have problems, try several combinations before seeking help. 

If you are really stuck, one way is to go back to your school and confirm your password by checking your SLF number with your teachers or the deputy principal and the principal of your school.

Ask them to try the combination of your password and your username. After all the attempts, if you still cannot access your results, the teachers at your school, the deputy principal or the principal will have to call MSD (Measurement Services Division) and fix your problem.
