A total of 329,416 out of the 439,222 candidates who wrote this year’s basic examination across the country have been placed into the various senior high and technical schools.

The figure, according to officials of the Computerized Schools Selection and Placement System [CSSPS] represents 75 per cent of the total number of candidates.

The second batch of candidates is currently being processed to be placed soon. "Currently, we are working on the second placement which will be out very soon," Mr. Kwasi Anokye, System Administrator of the CSSPS told TV3.

Placement into schools according to the CSSPS Secretariat, is based on the raw score students obtain in the basic education certificate examinations.

Mr. Anokye said irrespective of the batches under which a candidate is placed, all students will be going to school at the same time, adding "we will let the candidates know when they should print their placement forms to go to the Senior High Schools"

He debunked the rumour that the placement has been cancelled because of anomalies, saying "it is not has never been cancelled"
