NOAS Grace Period and Tertiary Selections 

The NOAS (National Online Application System) is an online database run by the Department of High Education, Research , Science and Technology (DHERST). The system is used to to do the following

  • Register Grade 12 students bio data
  • Register School bio data including teachers and their subject specialists
  • Holds electronic Student Leaver Forms 
  • processes student Choices for Tertiary Studies
  • selects students electronically based on GPA to tertiary institutions. 
NOAS Grace Period : This is the period, usually a week set for Grade 12 students to make final changes (if necessary) to their choices in the NOAS before the system is locked down for tertiary selections. This is done after Education Department Department publishes the Grade 12 results online and students have seen their results. 

Note : Grace Period allows students to make changes on the NOAS after they have seen their Grade 12 results. 

Important Notice 

 If you see red highlight indicated in any of your five choices under “My Choices”, this means that your final result has not met the minimum program requirement set by the institution. Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.

If you continue to have red highlight even you made changes to your Choices, consider yourself unsuccessful. This means you have not met the required GPA to enter any tertiary institutions in PNG. The only hope is to enrol at FODE centers to upgrade your marks. 

NOTE: NOAS does not display your final grades and GPA. If you wish to view your final results during the grace period, visit MSD’s website For further assistance, do check MSD, your school principal or subject teachers to assist you.
