The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has proposed September 2, 2022, as the schools selection date for candidates who will sit for the 2022 BECE for School to choose their preferred Senior High/Technical schools.
In a statement copied to EducationWeb, the Council said downloading of the school choices software, selection of schools and subsequent uploading of data online will also begin on July 4, 2022, and end on September 2, 2022.
The management of the not-for-profit-making organization also indicated that May 3, 2022, to June 10, 2022, will be used to capture the information, subject selection and pictures of the eligible students to write for the 2022 BECE.
Downloading of CASS software, capturing of candidates’ scores and subsequent uploading of data online the Council responsible for the conduct of the national examination said will start from June 27, 2022, to August 12, 2022.
“Please note that it is extremely important that the correct subjects are selected during the registration exercise. Finalise your registration data only after all corrections have been affected,” WAEC said in the release to school heads.
A staff of the Ghana Education Service (GES) commenting on the 2022 schools selection date said flyers, infographics and short videos in 9 Ghanaian Languages will be released to guide BECE students in the selection of the schools.
The Education Service official told EducationWeb trained officers will also be present in all Junior High Schools (JHSs) to embark on a school selection sensitization exercise as part of efforts to ensure smooth computer school placement.
The sensitization and education on this year’s guidelines for school selection into second cycle schools, he said will take place in all the respective Regional, District Education Directorates and in all basic schools across the country.
“Again there would be an opportunity for candidates to text a short code and confirm their school choices before actual placement will be done. Details of the code will be made available in due course,” the GES staff noted.
