The Ministry of Education (MoE) has moved this year’s schools selection video guidelines and Computerised Schools Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) school selection form from https://freeshs.net to https://freeshs.gov.gh.
The transfer comes after the domain name of the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) Secretariate website https://freeshs.net which earlier hosted the video guideline on the 2023 school selection and school selection form expired.
“In a recent statement, MoE directed students who sat for this year’s BECE to visit freeshs.net to watch the school selection guideline video and download the school selection form but those files currently can be accessed at freeshs.gov.gh,” an official of the Education Ministry told Thisterm.com.
The Ministry of Education following plans to broadcast guidelines on the selection of second cycle schools by students who sat for 2023 BECE on various television networks uploaded the school selection guidelines video at freeshs.net.
“The video will be featured within schools and extensively broadcast on various television. The video and the selection form will also be accessible on the official website of the Free Senior High School Secretariat at freeshs.net,” MoE said.
