The Ghana Education Service (GES) has issued a warning to the public against dishonest people who may cheat guardians under the guise of getting their wards into their supposedly favored senior high schools.
In a press release dated January 29, GES issued the warning in advance of the launch of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) site.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) uses the CSSPS as the only way to enroll certified Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in Senior High Schools (SHS), Technical Institutes (TI), and vocational institutes throughout the nation.
GES requested that guardians be on the lookout for such deceptive individuals and assist in reporting them to the nearest police station for further prosecution in order to deter others from participating in the annual event.
“Management strongly cautions the general public NOT to fall prey to deceitful persons that may approach them to pay money for a place in SHS. Such persons are to be reported immediately to the Police.”
It also cautioned guardians to be aware of false information that could trick them into falling for placement scams and recommended the public to contact GES through its official social media accounts for assistance.
“We also advise the general public to beware of fake news portals and instead follow GES official social media handles; Facebook (ges.gov.gh), Twitter (@gheduservice), Instagram (@gheduservice) and website (ges.gov.gh) for credible information.”
“The Ghana Education Service (GES) remains committed to ensuring a smooth, merit-based SHS placement process under the established guidelines and looks forward to your full cooperation,” the statement further assured.
