Grade 11 Selection is made available by NDoE Follow PNG Insight on PNG Insight Blog as we bring you the latest updates on education and development in the country.

Who Does the Grade 11 Selections

The Grade 11 selections for every secondary and national high school in the country are done by the school principals. In practice, the school principals would meet annually in Port Moresby and select the students based on their school leavers’ choices and marks.

When the school principals have selected the students, they pass the list to the General Education Services (GES) Division of the National Department of Education. GES then publishes the list of Grade 10 Students selected for Grade 11.

As mentioned earlier, GES publishes the selection list for Grade 11 in PDF. However, the problem is that it can be difficult to find the student’s name on the PDF document. The prints are very small.

To help you to identify your name easily, read on…

Grade 11 selection list

Parents, guardians and relevant stakeholders can download the files and check for their children’s names. One problem you may face is that it can be quite difficult to identify the names of the students.

Here is a quicker way to search for the new grade 11 students’ names on the PDF selection list:

Download the right regional file

The recent Grade 11 selection list is available online at the NDOE (National Department of Education) website. There, you’ll find both the secondary and National High school selection lists. The link is provided above.

Use the PDF search bar

It can take a long time to locate a student’s name among the thousands of students. To make it easy, type the name of the student in the search bar and click search. If the name is on the selection list, it will appear in a matter of seconds. Fast.

Confirm the name and school

It is important to make sure the selected student from the feeder school goes to the right upper secondary school. You can do that by cross-checking the selection list or confirming with the school admin.

Grade 11 students things to do before the school year starts

Confirm your name with the school list. Important.

This is an ideal time to correct any spelling errors or misunderstandings. If it means calling the school, the new Grade 11 student and parents may have to do that before school starts. Iron out any misunderstanding you may have as the key stakeholder.

Visit the school

Many town schools are day schools but it is better to visit your school before the new academic year starts. Visiting the schools is vital as parents and you may meet the teachers and school admin, and get information prior to starting school.

Prepare for the academic year

You will need new clothes, uniforms and shoes before p classes commence. But above all, it is a must to have a biros, ruler, bag and calculator (for use in maths lessons). Buy things you’ll need and can think of.

You can collect materials and other things at a later time when you have settled into school.

Prepare your mind

Education is becoming very competitive. Grade 11 selected students must start early by preparing their minds. Set a target for the national grade 12 exams and work towards it.

One thing I must add here – read a lot of books.

  • 1. Read as many books as you can.
  • 2. Read out loud. Read in silence.
  • 3. Read books.
  • 4. Read.
  • 5. Repeat step 1.

Do the extra

The students whose names are on the Grade 11 selection list are celebrating. You can celebrate in style too. Do some charity work. Or be a good Samaritan. Do good works in secret and unintentionally. The good you do now will come back to you in amazing ways. Tenfold.

Hope you have a good and fulfilling year.

      Hi Regina,
      There is an increase in anticipation for the Gr 11 selection listing to be out. The onus is now on GES education department to publish the list.

      We do not know when it will come out.

      It is up to GES and education department to let the public know.

      This website only acts as a proxy and informs its visitors of the news and publications made available online.

    I am a parent. I am really happy that the National Department of Education and Measurement Services Division MSD for successfully making online results for the Grades 8,10&12 available free of charge. This gives us parents the advantage to know our child’s status in advance rather than asking officer’s on the streets.


      Hi Stanis, it’s great to hear this from you – a parent. I am sure it’s a sentiment shared by many parents around the country.

    Thank you PNG Insight for the great work you are doing. Just want to have some clarification on the results of grade 10. Are the results given online inclusive of both internal and external, or just the exams (external)??
    Please, kindly advise.

    Cheers Iru


      The Grade 10 results are inclusive of both internal and external marks.
