The Ghana Education Service (GES) has said a total of thirteen thousand and forty-two (13,042) Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates failed to qualify to be placed into Senior High Schools and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Schools (TVET) in the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).
It follows the release of the placement for candidates on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
However, 585,797 of the 598,839 results received from the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) qualified to be placed.
In a statement, the GES said 81.56% of the qualified candidates have been automatically placed into their choice of schools, a development the Service touts as “a significant improvement compared to last year’s”.
“A total of 477,772 (81.56%) have automatically been placed in one of their choices.”
Meanwhile, it said the remaining 108,025, that is, 18.44% could not be matched with any of their choices and are thus supposed to undertake a self-placement from available schools.
Placed Candidates will access the placement platform by obtaining a placement PIN code from an approved vendor and logging onto the site www.cssps.gov.gh
Candidates must after that enter the ten-digit index number and add 23 as the year of completion, enter the pin code details (serial number and pin), click on submit and wait for placement to show up.
Candidates are to print their enrolment form, placement slip, and prospectus and then proceed to their school for registration.
