BECE SHS School Placement
Prof. Opoku-Amankwa told the Daily Graphic that the GES there are enough vacancies for the candidates, for which reason there is no need for any candidate or parent to panic.
He further explained that the challenge with the CSSPS had always been an issue of choice and not the availability of spaces.
He noted that over the years, the number of candidates who qualified to be placed were always far below the vacancies available. He said only about 100 schools, out of the 721 areusually oversubscribed.
BECE SHS School Placement Arrangements
Arrangements are being put in place to address overcrowding of candidates and parents, he explained that unlike the previous years this year, because of the COVID-19, to avoid the situation where people will rush to the Black Star Square and other places to gather, the following arrangements are being put in place.
- Setting up call centres to receive and work on issues people may be coming up with
- At such centres they could address genuine technical issues and also the issue of a day student placed in a distant school.
BECE SHS School Self Placement Procedures
The major issue that creates a problem for is the self-placement
- In the past, when you did the self-placement, chose a school and for any reason you wanted to change it, the system did not allow you to do so. You needed to come back to us, and that was why we got people massing up at the Black Star Square to do those changes
- This year, however, candidates would be allowed some level of flexibility to effect changes on their own.
- For this year, candidates will be allowed to change schools a couple times until finally they enroll in them by themselves.
- So until you enroll in a school, you can continue to do changes up till the enrolment deadline, and once you have the opportunity to change, you do not need to come over here to seek any assistance or for someone to do that for you,” he told the Daily Graphic.
