The Ministry of Education has urged the public to remain calm as applicants continue to be placed in high schools through the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).

There have been concerns over placements, with some accusing the system of bias.

Resolution centers have thus been set up in the 16 regions of Ghana to solve the problems that parents and, by extension, Ghanaians may have with the exercise.

In a statement released on Friday, April 1, the ministry said that “all resolution centers in Ghana’s 16 regions will be open and will continue to operate beyond April 4, 2022.”

Candidates who have had schools of their choice must report on Monday, April 4 to begin their high school life.

In commending all stakeholders, including parents and guardians, for the cooperation received since posting the placements on Saturday, March 26, the ministry assured everyone that “there are enough vacancies for qualified applicants.” .

A total of 367,811 applicants out of 555,353 qualified for compulsory placement in schools of their choice.

The remaining 187,542 qualified applicants were asked to self-place in available schools as they could not be matched with any of their choices.
