The Ministry of Education (MoE) as part of measures to ensure all students who sat for the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) are placed into their preferred Senior High/Technical School has released a new schools selection form.
The 2023 schools selection form an official of the Education Ministry in an interview with AcademicWeek said consists of two sections aimed to make 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.
The MoE official indicated that the updated or new Senior High School selection form can be downloaded from the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) Secretariat official website https://freeshs.net or at https://academicweek.com.
Scheduled to commence on August 23, 2023, the Education Ministry in a statement shared with AcademicWeek.com said the 2023 selection of schools will end on September 4, 2023, with no further extension of the deadline.
