When will 2020 BECE placement result be released online? A lot of candidates who participated in the 2020 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 aggregate 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 cancelled by WAEC due to examination malpractices or other reason.
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 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 2020/2021 academic year.
