Officials of the Computerised School Selection and Placement System, CSSPS say although the cancellation and rescheduling of some papers in the 2014/2015 Basic Education Certificate Examinations has delayed its activities, it will fully go through all the laid down processes before posting the students.
According to the Systems Administrator of the CSSPS, Kwasi Anokye, candidates who sat for the BECE have already been given a stipulated period to verify their choices of four second cycle institutions.
That process, he explained, is to help the candidates identify and notify authorities on any unexpected changes and irregularities for corrections to be effected.
Mr. Anokye noted that the next process is for the system’s data to be cross checked alongside the verified schools for onward processes before the final stage of postings.
He noted also that like the previous year, postings will this year be done in batches.
This however include candidates who sat for the previous academic year and later opted to be part of the 30 per cent quota specifically reserved for those closer to the various schools in their communities, but were not able to enroll due to reasons ranging from health to financial.
It will as well include candidates who for the first time sat for and passed the private BECE.
On the BECE results which were recently released online, the Systems Administrator urged all those who have not checked to do so, as they await the schools they have been posted to.
Placement Results Are Expected To Be Released A Week From Now:
Roughly From 12/10/2015 Onwards.
All the candidates who passed their exams, can check the schools they have been posted to from then.
The Systems Administrator of the CSSPS, Kwasi Anokye explained that the delays in placing the students has been the cause of WAEC, which has delayed in submitting to it the raw scores needed for the placement exercise.
Speaking on the latest development on the matter, Mr. Anokye said they have began receiving the raw data from WAEC, pointing out that they have not yet received 100 per cent raw data.
“We are giving ourselves at least this weekend, so next week, whatever data we have we are going to release the selected students.
Very soon we are going to start with our placement and by next weekend parents will be able to text to know the school their wards have been posted."
He indicated that the placement would be in batches. “This is so because we will have certain students whose raw marks will not even be able to let them be in the four schools that they themselves have chosen,” he said.
Such students, Mr. Anokye said, would be placed later when further vacancies are created in the schools they chose.
That notwithstanding, he said, all the candidates would be placed before the students report to their various schools for academic work to begin.
Meanwhile, public and private senior high schools as well as technical institutes declared a total of 427,950 vacancies in September. More schools were yet to declare their full vacancies as at the time.
