CSSPS SHS Schools Self Placement Instructions – GES 2019

The truth is that, when the West African Examination Council (WAEC) releases the results of the 2019 BECE followed by the release of schools into which candidates have been placed automatically from the five schools they chose during the registration process, not all candidates who qualified for placement will be placed.

Each year, the GES is unable to place all candidates. In 2018, more than 67,000 could not be matched with any of their five schools of choice. The GES through the Ministry of education and the Free SHS Secretariat gave such candidates a second chance to do a self-placement.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has asked Basic Education Certificate examination candidates who did not get automatic placement into senior high schools by the Computerised School Selection Placement System (CSSPS) to try again.

The Service says it has made available a pool of schools from which the students can choose from on its online platform manually.

Public Relations Officer of the GES, Cassandra Twum Ampofo said the candidates were not placed because they did not get any of the five schools they had chosen.

The GES she said, did not do the placement for them because it wanted the candidates to do so themselves.

But there is no need to panic, the PRO said these students can do the placements on their own at www.cssps.gov.gh

“To access the portal the first thing to do is to get a pin code. Dial *713*24# to get the code on your phone and then log on to the site.”

Ampofo said candidates, in entering their index numbers must add 18, signifying the year of completion, “and then you go through the other instructions by inserting your serial number and pin and then your placement.”

Students who have not been placed can proceed to the self-placement module on the portal once they have logged in, fill a form and choose their preferred school.

The GES is assuring parents that a number of schools have been uploaded onto the platform and their wards should go through the placement without hitches.

Regional solution centres have also been set up at all Regional Education Offices where candidates with genuine concerns can visit for resolution.

What is BECE SHS self-placement?

Self-placement is an opportunity given candidates to choose or select online one school out of a pool of schools. When the choice is made and a vacancy exists, the candidate is placed instantly and he or she can then print the placement report for Free SHS.

Such candidates obtained the pass mark (raw scores) but could not be matched to any of the five schools he or she selected.

We are convinced that there will be self-placement unless the GES comes out with a new modality for placing all candidate’s automatically.
