When will 2021 BECE placement results be released online? A lot of candidates who participated in the 2021 WAEC BECE examinations have asked when is the BECE placement result coming out? This question is very particular for candidates who are awaiting placement in Senior High Schools (SHS).
Both private and school candidates are really inquisitive to know when the BECE placement result will be out. However, before a candidate can qualify for placement into the Senior High School in Ghana, he/she must meet some criteria.
BECE Placement Selections and Qualification Process
For a candidate to qualify for selection and placement, the grades obtained in any of the four core subjects must not exceed grade five. The candidate’s minimum grade in any best two subjects should not exceed grade six. The candidate’s best two subjects should not be more than an aggregate of 30 if the two are added to the four core subjects.
A candidate is disqualified in the selection and placement if any of his/her core subjects exceeds six or any core subjects are canceled by WAEC due to examination malpractices or other reasons.
Since a greater number of junior high school (JHS) students sit for the BECE and could all qualify for their first-choice schools, the CSSPS uses raw scores of candidates for the selection process.
Also, qualified BECE candidates who were unable to obtain admission or deferred admission to SHS or technical institutions within the immediate past three years are also eligible for the selection and placement process alongside the current year candidates.
Non-Ghanaian candidates, Ghanaian candidates domiciled in foreign countries and seeking admission to Ghanaian schools, and children of Ghanaian citizens on foreign missions seeking admission to senior school or technical/vocational institutes in Ghana are also qualified for the selection process.
You can also, see the BECE grading system to better calculate your grade.
Private candidates are expected to go through the school selection process to be considered for placement in the 2021/2022 academic year.
When Will 2021 BECE Placement Result be Released?
The SHS school selection process started from Monday, 15th November, 2021 to Friday, 19th November, 2021. As such the 2021 school placement results will be released immediately after the release of the BECE result.
Normally, the BECE examination result is expected to be out after 45 days. Once the result is out, the Ghana Education Service (GES) will then commence the process of the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS).
According to our calculations, the BECE results should be out by early January 2021. Students should then expect their SHS placement results to be out between January and February 2021.
Recall that the 2020 SHS placement was released on Sunday 28th February 2021.
The placement will cover candidates, both school and private, who wrote the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in 2021, as well as other re-entrants.
How to Check Your BECE Placement Result 2021
Having said that, we have put together a complete guide on how to check BECE placement results online.
Candidates who passed the examination can only check their placement result on the Computer School Selection and Placement Portal (www.cssps.gov.gh). Here, you can check the schools that you’ve been placed.
Alternatively, candidates can check their placement by purchasing the CSSPS scratch card and texting the 10-digit code plus their index number to the shortcode 1060 on all mobile networks.
Once you have seen your result, print your placement form, and send them to your school of placement.
