A BECE candidate ahead of Sunday 2020 SHS placement release has asked us which web browser is helpful for doing SHS self-placement. In this article, we will look at which internet browser suitable for the process.
According to the GES, self-placement is when a candidate is given the opportunity to select available schools provided by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) depending on the grade.
This type of placement is very crucial and sometimes favour candidates in the urban area’s where internet connection is good and internet cafes are not hard to find unlike candidates in rural areas with a poor connection.
Nevertheless, we recommend self-placement since candidates are given the opportunity to select available schools at the CSSPS depending on their grade. This year over 500,000 candidates are expected to do self-placement.
Which web browser is good for doing self-placement? Ghana’s Education Service (GES) recommends Chrome browser for checking the school placement but base on our experience Mozilla Firefox is the best option.
Educationweb.com.gh is endorsing Mozilla Firefox over Chrome browser because Firefox, unlike Chrome, will save you from connection timeouts which delays your chances of selecting your preferred Senior High School.
A server connection timeout happens when the CSSPS website server is taking too long to reply to a data request made from your computer due to huge traffic, self-placement is a nationwide process so you can just imagine.
For best results, use a computer that supports the latest version of Mozilla Firefox or Chrome browser. Note that self-placement isn’t optimized for mobile devices, use your computer or visit an cafe to start the process.
The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof. Kwasi-Opoku Amankwa has confirmed the 2020 SHS placement of candidates who sat for BECE in 2020 will be released Sunday, February 21, 2021.
