Ahead of the release of results of candidates who took this year’s Basic Schools Certificate Examination (BECE), the Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) has given candidates who are willing to change their schools and courses the opportunity to do so.

National Co-ordinator of the CSSPS, Mr Kwasi Abankwa Anokye said this is aimed at resolving some of the challenges parents go through after placements.

He told the Finder Newspaper that in the months of July and August, parents can confirm or change the choice of schools and pro­grammes for their wards.

Mr Anokye said interested parents should text the 10-digit index number of their wards to the short code 1060 on MTN, Tigo, Airtel and Vodafone, and they would receive a message on the four schools selected by the candi­date and the selected programme.

He added that parents who wish to change the school and programme of their wards can then contact their jun­ior high schools (JHS) to write to CSSPS for the changes to be effected.

Private candidates, children of foreigners and Ghanaians who acquired basic education outside Ghana but want to attend senior high school (SHS) in Ghana all have the chance to be included in the CSSPS, Mr Anokye said.

He said such candidates have to buy a form from the Ghana Education Service (GES) Headquarters, fill it, submit it to GES and take an aptitude test, from where successful candidates will be placed.
