At the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) hall in Accra, hundreds of parents and their children have assembled to request the placement of their children in second-cycle institutions.
This comes after news that graduates of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in 2022 have been placed in senior high schools and technical, vocational, education, and training (TVET) programmes.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) reports that 538,399 of the 547,329 exam takers were eligible for school placement.
GES continued by saying that while 372,780 students had been automatically assigned to various second-cycle universities, the computerised system had been unable to pair 165,601 students with any of the second-cycle institutions.

This has led to a current influx of guardians and JHS graduates who are displeased with the schools they were assigned, while others who did not receive a school are looking for placement, at the GNAT Hall in Accra.
One of the parents told JoyNews that his child received a respectable mark and should attend a higher-level institution than the CSSPS chose for her.
Meanwhile, Nana Afrah Sika Mensah, the Deputy Coordinator at the Free SHS Secretariat, stated that her organisation is working around the clock to provide the stakeholders with the support they require.
The Form 1 reporting date, according to the GES, is February 20, 2023.
“The first week is reserved for orientation and registration. On February 27, 2023, classes will start, the Service said on Facebook.
