Authorities at the Mfantsipim Senior High School (SHS) in the Central Region have turned away some freshly placed students for the 2019-2020 academic year for wrong placement.
The Computerised School Selection Placement System (CSSPS) has generated lots of controversies and frustration over the past few days after the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) released this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) released the school placement which saw many parents and students troop into the solution centres which was set up in every region to address their challenges and frustrations.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service (GES) says no student was wrongly placed by the CSSPS.
The Deputy Director-General in charge of Quality and Access, Kwabena Tandoh, said students were placed according to their choice of schools.
Mr Tandoh in an interview explained that students were placed by merit and it was impossible for anyone to complain that he or she was not placed in schools or programmes of their choice.
