Please note that the Placement Checkers is not available because school placement has not been released yet.. Kindly call 0548938716 for inquiries or continue reading to find out how to check the school placement by yourself.
BECE candidates who wrote their exams in the last year, 2020, are still waiting for placements to come out.
A lot of the candidates and their parents have complained about the seeming delay of the placements.
Without the placements, students can not be posted to their schools. It is also a point of anxiety since many people are expecting particular schools, depending on the grades which they have already checked.
Going to Senior High School (SHS) will surely make a lot of the young students happy.
Why then, does it seem like the Ghana Education Service (GES) is delaying bringing out the placements and when exactly will the 2020 School Placement in SHS come out for the BECE candidates?
We attempt to answer the questions below.
Why has 2020 School Placement Delayed?
Covid-19 and the late writing of the BECE in 2020
The first and most obvious reason why the BECE Placements in SHS have not been released is because the BECE itself was written very late.
Covid-19 prevented the BECE from been written as scheduled. The 2020 BECE was written from 14th to 18th September 2020. This is a very big deviation from how it has been over the years.
By the mere fact that the BECE was delayed, all other results and processes that depend on it are expected to be delayed. This is the major cause of the delay of the CSSPS school placements.
Timing of the release of BECE Results
When the BECE is written, a lot of people usually look out for the results and only after that do people start searching for the placements.
The 2020 BECE results were released on the evening of 16th December 2020. The timing of the release of the results meant that students could check their results just before the Christmas holidays.
However, at the point that the results were released, the workers at GES and CSSPS would have most likely been preparing to go on break and therefore work on placement would be at a slow pace.
Also, there was a general election in Ghana and a little sense of unrest, which would see a lot of individuals not going to work at all for some days, after the elections, for safety reasons.
Due to these, it is only natural that the school placements will be delayed.
A lot more candidates are going to SHS
This year, a significant more people who completed JHS will be going to SHS, especially because it is free and their is more infrastructure to take in more students.
This also means that, a lot of people have to be processed into schools which is a greater work load. In the past, the CSSPS has been criticised for making unforgivable errors.
With more people and a desire to minimise, if not eliminate errors, it makes sense that they are taking their time to make sure everyone is happy with their placements.
