The Ghana Education Service (GES), following the release of the second-cycle school placement guidelines, has outlined self-placement guidelines to assist students in selecting their preferred school choice at the Computerized School Selection and Placement (CSSPS) portal.
In a statement shared with Thisterm.com, the Education Service said BECE candidates who were not automatically placed in any of their eleven choices should visit any of the CSSPS websites at https://cssps.gov.gh to do self-placement.
The management of the Education Service said that out of the total number of 598,839 results received from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), 585,797 candidates qualified to be placed.
“A total of 477,772 (81.56%) prospective students have automatically been placed in one of their choices. This is a significant improvement compared to last year’s, with over 100,000 more students placed.
However, 108,025 (18.44%) qualified candidates could not be matched with any of their choices. All such students are, therefore, to do self-placement to select from available schools when accessing the placement platform,” it said in the release.
