Mr Albert Kwame Mante, a guardian, claims that his nephew, who scored a ten on the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), was offered the fifth option rather than the first, second, or third in the school placement.
He stated that this situation is unusual to him.
“My nephew received aggregate and he didn’t get any of the first, second, or even third choice,” he told TV3 on Monday, March 28 at the GNAT Hall at Accra’s placement resolution center. The fifth option was presented to us. However, I find it strange that someone who received a ten may be sent to the fifth choice.”
On Saturday, March 26, the Ministry of Education unveiled the 2021/2022 Computerized School Selection and Placement Systems (CSSPS) for students entering Senior High Schools (SHS).
According to the Ministry, 367, 811 of the 555,353 individuals who qualified for the placement were automatically put in schools of their choosing.
The remaining 187, 542 suitable candidates, on the other hand, will have to self-place in available schools because none of their preferences were matched.
“On Saturday, March 26, 2022, the 2021/2022 Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) for Senior High Schools (SHS)/ Senior High Technical Schools (SHTS) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Institutes will go live,” according to the announcement.
