Candidates who sat for the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) have been assured of a guaranteed place in Senior High School. The national coordinator for the Computerised School Selection and Placement System says that there are enough spaces in schools to accommodate candidates.
The CSSPS was initiated in 2005 to computerize school selection and placement. A specific date is yet to be set for the release of the placement of students to their various schools, however, this would be before 10th March, since it is the date set for school to resume for these students.
“The data that we get from WAEC is encrypted, so we can’t change it,” said Mark Sasu Mensah, the national coordinator for CSSPS. He added that a lot of education has taken place regarding the selection of schools for 2020 BECE candidates this year, including educating the public on how to choose the schools.
