The Ministry of Education (MoE) says prospective candidates who sat for last year’s BECE can now make school changes at the Self-placement Module when the school placements are released Sunday, February 21.
Mr Rodney Nkrumah, a spokesperson for the Education Ministry in an interview monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said this new development form part of efforts to ensure a difficulty-free school placement this year.
“What we have done this time around is that after you chose the schools, we have put in a verification system along the lines of what the Electoral Commission does where you can send a text to a certain number to confirm the school that you have chosen”, he noted.
Mr Rodney continued that “For the self-placement module, “now we have removed the restrictions so you can go back and change it [your choice]”.
He further said his outfit following the 2020 BECE school placement has resolved all technical challenges with the Computerized School Selection and Placement System and that no cases of system breach are expected.
Professor Kwasi-Opoku Amankwa, Director-General of GES has confirmed the 2020 SHS placement will be released on Sunday, February 21, 2021.
