Introduced in 2018 by the Akufo-Addo led government, the popular and successful free Senior High School policy is to ensure all final year JHS students who become successful at BECE continue their secondary education for free.
Beneficiaries of the first batch of the programme President Nana Addo described as graduates last year sat for the WAEC WASSCE to complete Senior High School despite the outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic.
The second batch of the Free SHS students from September will sit for the 2021 edition of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) usually administered by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
