The Ghana Education Service (GES) as it prepares to release the 2022 second-cycle school placement has advised the public, particularly students to beware of scammers who claim to have access to the computer placement system.
Speaking to AcademicWeek, a staff of the Service urged students who will be participating in the school placement exercise to be vigilant and disregard claims by some internet cafe operators who claim can change the placement.
“The activity of some internet cafe operators claiming to have access to the computerized placement system last year came to our notice, we urge parents and students this year to be vigilant during the school checking,” he stated.
The unscrupulous cafe operators he said lure the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) graduates to pay an amount of money for their already placed or selected Senior High School to be changed to their preferred choice.
The GES official indicated the computerized school placement system (CSSPS) portal as part of measures to ensure the smooth placement of all successful 2022 BECE students has been secured and is not possible to be compromised.
“Any person who contacts you to pay any amount of money for your placed or selected school to be changed or claims to have access to the school placement system or websites is a fraudster,” the GES staff told AcademicWeek.
He also encouraged parents and guardians to find time and take a keen interest in the selection of schools and school placement to ensure their wards are placed in a school to benefit from the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) policy.
