Minimum Requirements for Grade 11 Selections

The minimum requirement set by the National Department of Education is  Upper Pass (UP) and above. This means, students must score atleast Upper Passes and above to be selected for Grade 11.

However, each province in PNG applies both the National minimum requirements as well as quota in selecting their students for Grade 11. 

For the National Minimum requirements, the General Education Services provides eligible student lists to the secondary school principals in each province to do their selections for Grade 11.  

Quota: In this scenario,  a school principal is given a chance to select students who have just missed the minimum requirement. This happens  when the the eligible list is exhausted and there a few more spaces at his/her school to be filled up.
