To ensure smooth schools placement for all qualified candidates who wrote the 2021 BECE the management of the Ghana Education Service/Technical and Vocational Education Training and Service (GES/TVETS) have instituted major guidelines for parents, guardians, and the general public in their ward school selection and placement.
According to GES/TVETs, all Senior High schools (SHS/SHTS/TVETS) have been placed under four (4) categories which include category A, B, C, D. According to management all students must choose their 1st to 5th choice of schools from category A to C.
When selecting your schools, every choice must have a program and accommodation preference. For the accommodation, a student will either choose a day or boarding depending on the accommodation status of the school.
Management is of the view that a student can only select category A schools once and category B Schools twice but a student is allowed to choose all the five schools from category C.
GES further explained that all students must choose a compulsory day school from category D as their 6th choice or choose the list of boarding schools from appendix 3 ( of the 2021 school register ) as a special boarding.
Category D consists of the day school option. There are the schools that a candidate can attend as a day student and it must be in the candidate’s locality where he or she can go to school and come back home.
Appendix 3 consists of special boarding schools that a candidate can choose as their 6th choice.
To those who want to offer TVETS programmes candidates are at liberty to choose all the six (6) from TVETS schools in category A, B, or C with either day or boarding preference.
All candidate’s schools of choice must be six. Parents or guardians are to ensure that they supervise their children to make the choice, sign, and submit to their current Junior High schools.
