The Ghana Education Service says in late February this academic year, it will end the opportunity for 2023 BECE graduates who are yet to get Second-cycle school (SHS/TVET) placement to submit their BECE results for admission.
A GES official GES says the Senior High School (SHS) enrollment drive is a Ministry of Education (MoE) decision to ensure more students who sat and passed the 33rd edition of BECE get placement into various Second-cycle schools.
“There are some students who passed the BECE but were not able to get placement; they are all invited. They should all come so that we find them schools to attend. We don’t want to leave any student unattended,” he told Daily Graphic.
For smooth admission processing, the GES official said qualified but unplaced 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination graduates should produce the results of their national examination (BECE) for action to be taken on them.
“We have some girls who were pregnant and have given birth and are at home (drop-outs). We have opened our gates; they should let us know so that we bring them on board, for them to also get access to school,” the GES official noted.
In a related story, Ghana Education Service (GES) has released what could best be described as the second batch SHS/TVET placement of Junior High School (JHS) prospective students who sat for the 2023 edition of the BECE.
The Ghana Education Service indicated that effective December 11, 2023, students who sat for the 2023 BECE but had their subject script withheld by the West African Examinations Council can check their second cycle school placement.
A spokesperson for the Service, Cassandra Twum Ampofo in an interview said that the cleared scripts have been processed by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), allowing candidates to access their school placements.
‘’We have 21,458 out of the 22,270 scripts released and we have worked on them. So, by December 11, 2023, if they check on the Computerized School Selection and Placement System portal, they will see their school placement
“Initially, all those candidates could not access their placement but now they can. Now we have 812 candidates whose scripts are yet to be released and we will work on that,” the Public Relations Officer for the Education Service stated.
