Students who a scored grade point average (GPA) above the cut-off mark for the Tertiary Education Student Assistance Scheme (TESAS) but were not listed should inquire with their respective institutions.
The student support and scholarships branch of the Office of Higher Education acting assistant director Miti Peai said the cut-off mark this year for the Academic Excellence Scholarship category (AES) was between 3.6 and 4.0 and for High Education Contribution Assistance Scheme category (HECAS) was between 2.25 and 3.59.
The scholarship was awarded by the Office of Higher Education for students at higher institutions.
He said many students had been going to the office to seek why they had not been listed for the TESAS scholarship even though they had scored above the required GPA.
He said the names of students given by the institutions were published but some institutions did not provide them and so were not published.
“We only coordinate; everything depends on the universities and colleges and their criteria and they supply us with the names of students who were selected for TESAS, we do not select them,” Peai said.
He said students who missed out on the listings of TESAS should call into their respected institutions to find out why.
He stressed that the name lists for new intakes would be published in this newspaper sometimes this week but that depended on funding.
“If funding is available we will publish the lists but otherwise, acceptance letters would be sent out to students through mail,” he said.
“The TESAS list excludes names from the University of Goroka (UOG) and Kokopo Business College (KBC) as they did not provide their results within the time-frame for publication.”
