The 2022 second cycle school placement two weeks after the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examinations results are out will be released, the Public Relations Officer for the Ministry in charge of Education (MoE), Kwasi Kwarteng has said.
In an interview monitored by AcademicWeek, the spokesperson said his outfit in collaboration with Ghana Education Service, Ghana TVET Service and Free SHS Secretariate is working tirelessly to release the school placement on time.
“After the BECE results are out, the 2022 Senior High/Technical School placement in less than two weeks will be released. The students are expected to report to school in February this year,” the Education Ministry spokesman said.
Ahead of the release of the computer school placement, the Ministry has opened the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) schools selection placement portal for students who sat for the 2022 BECE for School.
In a statement shared with AcademicWeek, the Education Ministry said the STEM placement portal gives access to the list of new STEM Senior High Schools 9SHSs) included in the 2023 school selection and placement process.
Aside from the list of the 21st century Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) second cycle schools, the Ministry said the portal also provides information on available STEM programs and their career pathways.
“It gives further details of existing Senior High Schools that would be offering STEM programs during the 2023 academic year,” the statement signed by the Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Education (MoE) stated.
Students with an interest in pursuing strictly Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs have been encouraged to visit https://stem-ssp.com.gh to select their preferred schools and corresponding programs.
According to the Ministry of Education (MoE), prospective students’ selection of the public STEM Senior High Schools at the STEM schools selection placement portal will take precedence over their initial school selection.
