Ghana Education Service releases guidelines for 2011 BECE placement

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has released guidelines for the implementation of the 30 per cent Catchment Area Allocation for placement of Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates into Senior High School/Technical Institutes.

These are in line with the directive by President John Evans Atta Mills in his Sessional Address to Parliament this year, according to a statement issued in Accra on Tuesday.

Under the guidelines, 2011 BECE candidates who obtained up to aggregate 30 and wish to attend school in the Catchment Area are to list the names of all Senior High Schools/Technical Vocational Institutes in their catchment areas on the CSSPS Placement Forms to be sent to all participating Junior High School (JHS) and all District Education Offices.

Candidates who complete the forms will be placed in one of the Senior High School (SHS) listed depending upon the raw scores obtained and available vacancies and programmes.

Candidates who decide to opt for the 30 per cent Catchment Area Allocation (CAA) placement will be placed in their schools of choice by October 6, 2011.

Candidates who do not complete the 30 per cent Catchment Area Allocation placement form will be placed using the six choices made during registration that is 70 per cent.

The 70 per cent placement will be done on or before September 17, 2011 together with re-entry candidates and foreign students.

Candidates who have left the town or area where they took the BECE can complete the 30 per cent Catchment Area Allocation placement form in the nearest District/Municipal/Metropolitan Education Office.

District Examination Officers will handle the completion of the 30 per cent Catchment Area Allocation Placement Form.

The forms are not for sale.

“It must be noted that only interested candidates are encouraged to apply for consideration and school of preference is not guaranteed, since it is also based on merit,” the statement said.

All completed forms should reach the Director, Secondary Education Division, GES Headquarters in Accra, latest by September 12, 2011 for processing by the CSSPS Secretariat.

These completed forms should be sent by candidates to the District Education Directorates for onward submission to the Director, Secondary Education Division.
