The Ministry of Education (MoE) has solved all technical challenges with the Computerised School Selections and Placement System (CSSPS) to ensure a smooth placement of BECE graduates, the Ministry spokesperson has said.
The Management in charge of the Computerised School Selections and Placement System (CSSPS) last year in a statement copied to Georgeweb.org indicated the CSSPS module has been hacked or compromised.
As a result of the system breach, the majority of parents of 2019 BECE graduates gathered at the Black Star Square to demand school placement for their wards since the online process was not functioning.
But, Mr Rodney Nkrumah-Boateng speaking on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News noted his outfit this year has addressed all technical challenges confronting the CSSPS module and that there will be no cases of a system breach.
“What we have done this time around is that after you chose the schools, we have put in a verification system along the lines of what the EC [Electoral Commission] does where you can send a text to a certain number to confirm the school that you have chosen.”
In addition, with for the self-placement portal, “now we have removed the restrictions so you can go back and change it [your choice],” he added.
The spokesperson furthered that with these two measures in place the Ministry of Education is expecting a difficulty-free placement.
The selection of schools into Senior High Schools (SHS) for this year’s BECE graduates commenced Monday, September 21 and is expected to end October 31, 2020.
