The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science, and Technology (DHERST) has announced the National Selection Lists PDF for the 2024 academic year intake.

Successful applicants have been selected based on their Grade 12 results and chosen study program quota. They will receive an admissions offer letter directly from their chosen Higher Education Institution (HEI). Additionally, they may be eligible for financial support through the National Government scholarship awards through TESAS.

Applicants who were not selected have been placed in the National Online Selection System (NOSS) Admissions Pool. They may still be considered for admission if an HEI did not achieve full enrollment during the National Selections. They should check their MyStatus section on the NOAS platform from December 2023 to March 2024.

The 2024 UPNG acceptance lists for school leavers are available via the link below. The UPNG non-school leavers selection lists are not out yet. Here is the checklist for 2024:
