We’ve partnered Police to arrest SHS placement fraudsters – MoE

The Ministry of Education (MoE) following the soon to release 2021 computer school postings of students who sat for last year’s BECE says it is working together with the various security agencies to arrest school placement fraudsters.


A statement signed by the spokesperson for MoE and copied to EducationWeb said the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) purely run on merit and not on any other consideration whatsoever.

“The public is cautioned against the payment of monies to unscrupulous persons offering to secure their preferred choices ahead of the 2022 computerized school placement into Senior High/TVET schools,” MoE said on Thursday.

The Ministry of Education press release continued that “the public is assured that the Ministry is working together with security agencies to ensure any group of persons caught in this unlawful act shall be made to face the law.

Expected to be out within this week, a staff of the CSSPS has said about 90% of the candidates who sat for the 31st edition of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in 2021 will get secondary school placement.

The CSSPS Coordinator in an interview with Kumasi-based OTEC FM monitored by EducationWeb said adequate measures have been put in place by his outfit and the Ghana Education Service to ensure smooth school placement.

Sasu said unlike in 2020 that 85% of the students who participated in the 30th edition of the BECE for School qualified for posting, the Ghana Education Service (GES) this academic year has targeted to place 90% of the students.

He told the host of OTEC FM’S political show ‘Dwabrem’, Dr Cash that four categories of students including BECE for School candidates this year will be placed under the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).

“GES is ready to place four categories of candidates, the private candidates who sat to better their grades, the foreign candidates and the re-entry candidates who could not get placement due to peculiar issues last year,” he told OTEC.

The CSSPS official however said prospective students with an aggregate 9 in English Language and Mathematics will not be considered for placement this year citing that “it is the policy guideline of the computer placement.”
