Grade 12 school leavers can now access the internet and find out about the status of their placements in higher education institution, for the 2018 academic year.
The Higher Education Department has released the official, a roll out of the online selection system.
Departmental head, Father Jan Czuba, said it was a momentous event for Papua New Guinea.
It was officially released for Grade 12 school leavers, who have been selected through the Online Selection System to registered tertiary institutions for the 2018 academic year.
The complete list is available on the DHERST website: www.dherst.gov.pg.
12,234 students have been allocated to a study program, 47% of the 25,848 who applied.
All students with a GPA of 2.3 and above that met respective GPA and subject related entry requirements were allocated space within a Higher Education Institution.
First and second preferences indicated were used to allocate a place at a Higher Education Institution; while GPA and subject related entry requirements were used for ranking of the selection list.
All others that selected the option to be considered for alternate offers were allocated space to which they exclusively met entry requirements.
New intakes from this list will receive an admissions offer letter or notice.
In the meantime, the public has been advised that one institution, initially provided incorrect student quota after it overestimated its own capacity and will enroll fewer students.
DHERST will inform all TESAS awardees through separate offer letters.
Any selected student without a TESAS offer letter should consider being a self-sponsored student.
And any offers given outside of the Online Selection System will not be considered for national scholarship.
Meanwhile Higher Education Minister, Pila Niningi, in a statement said this selection would not be possible without the commitment of Higher Education Institution, DHERST, the department and its stakeholders.
