School Placement For 2022 BECE Candidates Released

The Computerised School Placement for 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates has been released, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has announced.

At a press briefing on February 15, 2023, the Director-General of the GES, Dr Eric Nkansah said out of the 547,329 registered candidates 538,399 qualified to be placed.

He said 372,780 representing 69.24% of qualified candidates have been automatically placed in at least one of their choices.

The remaining 165,601 qualified candidates representing 30.76% could not be matched with any of their choices and must therefore undertake self-placement to select from the available schools.

Steps To Self-placement:
1 Obtain a placement pin code from an approved vendor

2. Log onto www.cssps.com.gh

3. Enter the 10-digit index number and add 22 as the year of completion.

4. Enter the pin code details: ID, serial number and PIN

5. Click on submit and wait for Placement to show up.

6. After that you print your form and visit the school to begin the admission process.

Dr Nkasah indicated that if candidates are not matched with any of their choices in the automatic placement system, they will be redirected to the self-placement portal. From the portal, they will have to select the school by providing the following information:

1. Region

2. Residential preference

3. School

4. Programme of Choice

5 then you click submit

6. Print the form and visit the school to begin the admission process

He noted that schools selected on the self-placement portal can be changed as many times as the candidate wishes on the portal until the candidate enrols in a school.

The service warned parents and guardians to be wary of unscrupulous individuals who may demand money for changes in the placement of their wards.

It said such persons are to be reported immediately to the police and the GES.

Heads of schools are to stick to the approved prospectus whereas parents are to cooperate with the school authorities during and after the admission process, the Service said.

Solution Centres
Complaints or questions can be channelled through the GES’ social media handles, their call centre number 0302987654 and solution centres across the country.

“Solution centres have been set up at all regional education offices. At the national level, the solution centre will be set up at GNAT hall”, Mr Nkansah said.


“GES call centre has also been set up with well-trained staff to address all concerns of parents and guardians.”
