The Ghana Education Service (GES) Management has announced school selection criteria for the process as part of initiatives to enable seamless computer placement of qualifying applicants who sat for the 2021 BECE for school.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has established the following criteria for the selection process in partnership with the Management of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Service (GES/TVETS).
1. All Senior High Schools (SHS), Senior High Technical Schools (SHTS), and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) have been classified into four categories: A, B, C, and D.
2. In order of preference, all applicants must choose their first through fifth selections among schools in Categories A, B, and C.
3. Each option must have a program and lodging preference.
4. Candidates who want to provide solely TVET programs must choose all six (6) TVET schools in Categories A, B, and C as Day or Boarding.
5. As a special boarding option, candidates must pick an obligatory day as their sixth choice from Category D or a boarding school from the list of schools in Appendix 3 (2021 schools registration). Candidates must choose six schools in total.
Parents and guardians are advised to observe their children throughout the choosing and filling procedure, as well as to sign and submit documents to their existing Junior High Schools (JHS).
