The Ghana Education Service (GES) has released the 2020 Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) for Senior High Schools (SHS) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Schools.
A statement released by the GES said, 494,530 candidates out of 533,693 who sat for the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) qualified to be placed.
Out of this (494,530), 343,264 candidates have been automatically placed in one of their chosen schools while 151, 266 qualified candidates could not be placed in any of the schools of their choice, it said.
The statement, therefore, directed the affected 151, 266 candidates who could not be placed to visit the GES self-placement portal to select schools of their choice.
“To avoid hitches during the self-placement process, schools with vacancies have been uploaded in the portal for the students to select from,” it added.
The statement directed parents, guardians and students to follow these steps to check the status of their wards and themselves:
Obtain a placement pin code from an approved vendor, log onto the site www.cssps.gov.gh, enter the ten-digit index number and add 20 as the year of completion. E.g.: 123456789020, enter the pin code details (serial number and pin), click on submit and wait for placement to show up, then print the form if you have been placed and visit the school to begin the admission process.
The National Solution Centre would not be set up this year due to COVID-19, instead, the GES has set up a National Call Centre to deal with complaints and concerns, it said
The telephone numbers for the Call Centre are 0900800700 and 0302987654, it added.
