Is 2021 computer school placement based on grade or raw score?

The Management of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) has said the computer school placement previously was done based on a candidate’s raw score but for this academic year that is not the case.


Speaking to EducationWeb on Tuesday, a staff of CSSPS said to ensure a ‘free and fair’ school placement of students who sat for last year’s BECE for School his outfit this year has prioritised aggregate or grade over the raw score.

“We use grade first before the raw score, previously before 2017 we were using only raw scores for the school placement but this year is aggregate before raw scores, the raw score is used to separate the tye,” he stated.

“For example, if there are only 3 vacancies available in a particular school for 5 candidates who all had the same grade. What the computer will do is use the raw score to break the tye for 3 out of the 5 students to go to that school.”

Aside from the grade and raw score, the CSSPS official said the computer placement is also done base on 6 subjects namely; English, Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies and 2 other best-performed subjects of a candidate.

The Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) staff said three categories of students have been considered for placement. The types of students he said are regular students, private candidates and foreign students.

Asked which type of Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for School students will not qualify for computer school postings this academic year, he said candidates who had an aggregate 9 in English Language or Mathematics.

“We don’t have a direct cut-off point for the computer school placement but when a student gets aggregate 9 in English Language or Mathematics we consider that a cut-off, so he or she will not qualify for placement,” he noted.

Mr Kwasi Kwarteng, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Education (MoE) Monday told United Television his outfit in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service, TVET Service and CSSPS are working on the school placement.

According to him, the much-awaited 2021 secondary school placement when not out within this week will be released by the Management of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) on March 21, 2022.

  34. I am not a conspiracy theorist or anything but I think what WAEC and GES is doing is soo suspicious, They raise the marking scheme after CSSPS is based on grade soo making it difficult for those with moderate grades like 10, 11, 12,13 but with high raw scores difficult to get their 1st choices soo they can push as little people as possible into the category 1 schools. is this way to reduce the budget for Free SHS cuz this is soo confusing Our education system is fucked up
