The Ghana Education Service (GES) released school placement for graduates of the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) into Senior High Schools and Technical, Vocational, Education and Training (TVET) schools across the country last Wednesday.
At a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, February 15, the GES said out of the 547,329 registered pupils, 538,399 candidates qualified to be placed in the various SHSs across the country.
372,780 candidates, representing 69.24% have also automatically been placed into various schools.
The GES further stated that 165,601 candidates who could not be matched with their school choices will have to do self-placement.
The Director General of the Ghana Education Service, Dr. Eric Nkansah also told the media that first-year students are expected to report to school on February 20 for their admission processes to begin.
An angry mother whose ward wasn’t placed in any school has fumed at GES for cheating her daughter.
According to the infuriated mother, her daughter had aggregate 35 with no school but her friend who had aggregate 39 was placed in an SHS.
As revealed by the mother, her daughter’s first choice was Aburi Girls and her second choice was Mfantsiman.
