The Ghana Education Service (GES), has introduced SMS short code 1060 on all mobile networks for students who sat for the 2010 BECE exams to check their Senior High School placements.

A statement signed by Mr Charles Parker-Allotey, Head of Public Relations of GES to the Ghana News Agency, said there would be supplementary placement for all qualified and unplaced candidates by 20th October, 2010.

“As part of the plan to fully automate the placement process for this year, the entry into Senior Secondary and Technical Institutes (ESS/TI) placement form would be accessed on the internet.”

Each successful candidate was required to print out his /her ESS/TI placement form from the internet using a GES Scratch Card it added.

The statement said the scratch card can be obtained from the nearest Agriculture Development, Bank and its agencies as well as the ARB Apex Bank and its network of rural banks by Monday 6th September, 2010.

It said the location of the banks would be published in the local newspapers and advertised on TV and FM stations.

It also said candidates without access to the internet might contact the head of their various Junior High Schools (JHS).

The GES expects all Regional, Districts Directors and Heads of JHS to facilitate the admission process by providing information and helping answer queries raised.
