Some disgruntled parents and guardians on Monday besieged the Independence Square in Accra where the School Placement Resolution Centre has been set up.
The angry parents stormed the centre to express their frustration over the non-placement of their wards in their preferred schools.
While some parents complained that, their wards have not been placed in their selected schools, some children have been placed at schools they did not choose in regions they never selected.
The angry parents told Adom News those who have been placed through self-selection don’t have the gold or green code for double track, a situation they describe as worrying.
The Computerised Schools Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) has asked some 67,382 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) students who were not placed into any senior high schools and technical institutes (TIs) of their choice to do a self-placement to get themselves into schools with vacancies.
Out of the 521, 710 registered candidates, 490, 514 candidates qualified to be placed. 423, 134 were automatically placed while the remaining 67, 382 candidates could not be matched with any of their choices.
The students have been advised to select schools of their choice through the following process:
Dial *713*24# to buy a placement pin code of GHS5.00;
After obtaining a pin code log onto the site www.cssps.gov.gh;
Enter the 10-digit index number and add 18 as your year of completion. Eg 123456789218;
Enter the pin code details (serial number and pin);
Click and submit and wait for placement to show up;
Print the form if you have been placed and send to school to begin admission.
