The Ministry of Education (MoE) following the delay in the selection of schools by candidates who sat for 2023 BECE has removed this year’s Senior High School selection form which previously was downloadable at https://freeshs.net.
Speaking to AcademicWeek, an official of the Education Ministry said the updated schools selection form consists of two sections aimed at making the selection of second-cycle schools understandable and not complicated.
“The new schools selection form has two sections thus, 1st placement school selection form where students are required to choose 6 schools and 2nd placement school selection form which requires them to select 5 schools,” he said.
