The important stakeholders involved in the selection of Grade 10 students to Grade 11 are the Education Department (Measurement Services Division & General Education Services Division) and secondary or national high school principals and provincial reps. This post discusses the timeline for the release of Grade 10 online result and Grade 11 selection listing. The link to the Grade 10 online result given below.
October national examinations
Grade 10 students sit the national examinations in October every year. The week after the examinations a group of selected Grade 10 teachers marks the students’ exam scripts in each province. They, then, record the students’ marks.
The provincial examinations supervisors (PESs) are the exam coordinators in the provinces. They send the Grade 10 results to the National Education Department in Port Moresby.
November data checks and release of results
Around the month of November the Education Department, through the Measurement Services Division (MSD), would have checked the data/marks of Grade 10 students.
The checking and cleansing of data usually take place before the Grade 11 selection. The verifying of students’ details and data is an important function of MSD. The activity is time-bound. MSD/NDoE does it promptly.
MSD releases the results of Grade 8, 10 and 12 after data checks and data cleansing are completed.
December Grade 11 selection
Two parties are involved in the selection process: General Education Services (GES) of the Education Department and principals or provincial reps.
In particular, MSD processes the Grade 10 examination results and makes it available online. And, releases it to the GES and principals for Grade 11 selections.
Read on to find out more about the Grade 10 online results and Grade 11 selections timeline.
Grade 11 selection hints
The spaces at secondary and national high schools are limited to the class sizes and the number of classes. Hence, the students’ selections depend on spaces. Also, the selection hinges on a student’s performances in the Grade 10 national examinations.
It is perhaps important to note that other factors also determine the chance of selecting a Grade 11 student a school. Some of the influential factors are listed below:
- Continuing Grade 10 students to Grade 11 in the same school
- Performed exceptionally well in Grade 10 examinations
- Parents and guardian wrote to the school principals indicating their reason/s for wanting to enrol their children to grade 11 in a particular school
- Special change of circumstances (e.g. family reasons, job transfer, etc.) may allow for the principals to select students to continue Grade 11 at their schools
- Students preferences on the School Leavers Forms (SLF)
Grade 10 online result
The launching of online results happens after the checking and cleansing of the examination data.
The online results make it easy for students, parents and guardians to access the results at their convenience.
As mentioned earlier, the Grade 10 results become available online around November. The 2019 Grade 10 online results were launched on the 3rd of November 2019. Now available via the link mypngexamresults.com – click on the image for the direct link.
Release of Grade 11 selection list
In hindsight, the MSD/NDoE puts in a lot of work into getting the data (exam results) ready on time for General Education Services (GES) and principals to use in the Grade 11 selections. The Grade 10 results used in the selections are also made available online for parents, guardians and students to see.
The GES of the Education department works with the selectors (principals) during Grade 11 selection. The selection can take up to a week or two. When the selection is complete, GES publishes the Grade 11 selection list on the department’s website.
The selection conference in Port Moresby will end on the 13th of December 2019.
It is important for those who are *desperate* to see the Grade 11 selection list to note that the selection list will be published after Friday the 13th December 2019.
Meanwhile, students, parents and communities will have to wait for the official announcement (and publication) on the Education Department website.
This website does not publish the Grade 11 selection list.
An article titled Grade 11 Selection Info & Updates provides more details. So, check out how to identify the students’ names on the Grade 11 selected listing through the link provided. Or, you can click here to go straight to the Department of Education website for the 2020 Grade 11 selection list.
Online results and selection list
The Grade 10 exam results will be available to principals for Grade 11 selections on the FIRST to the SECOND WEEK of December 2019.
The Grade 11 selections for 2020 will take about a week or two. That means that the students, parents and stakeholders will expect the list of names to be available to them around the THIRD WEEK of December 2019 if all goes according to plan.
To put it in perspective, the overall timeline (which may not be the same year-on-year) are as follows:
- Grade 10 examinations (early to mid-October)
- Exams marking (late October)
- Grade 10 results from the provinces arrive at the Education Department in Port Moresby (early November)
- Data Checks and cleansing (mid to late November)
- Publishing of Grade 10 online results (late November to early December)
- Release of Grade 11 selection listing (mid-December)
There you have it. It takes 3 months to complete the following examination process:
- taking the Grade 10 examinations,
- marking of exams, cleaning of data,
- launching of results and
- finalising the Grade 11 selection.
The key divisions are MSD and GES of the Education Department, Principals and provincial reps. They play an active role in the production of online results and selection of Grade 11 students in the country.
