Confirmation Of Choice Of Schools By 2017 BECE Candidates

The Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) Secretariat of Ghana Education Service (GES) has received the final list of Senior High Schools and Technical Institutes choices made by the 2017 BECE candidates themselves and compiled by West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) for the 2017 placement exercise which would commence soon.

As part of the preparations, parents and guardians of Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates have the opportunity to confirm their four (4) choices of schools made prior to the selection and placement exercise in September.

This arrangement is done to avoid the situation where some candidates and parents deny knowledge of the schools they have chosen after selection and placement is done by the CSSPS.

To confirm the schools selected, candidates should text their 10 digit index numbers to short code 1060 of any of the following networks:

MTN
VODAFONE
AIRTEL
TIGO

For example;

A candidate with Index number 0099999999 should text; 0099999999 to short code 1060 on any of the networks above.

The Ghana Education Service is confident that the confirmation of school choice made by candidates would bring about acceptance of the schools into which they are placed without the usual plea to the CSSPS Secretariat for change of such schools, although the choices were made by the candidates themselves.

Candidates whose schools of choice are different from those that appear after texting should contact their Junior High Schools or the District/Regional Education Directorate for immediate rectification.

Thank you.
