Prior to now,  B.E.C.E / J.H.S graduates can TEXT their 10-DIGIT INDEX NUMBER to the shortcode 1060 which works on MTN, Vodafone, Airtel, Tigo, and Kasapa. However, this method is obsolete.

The only working method is simply dialling *447*160# to get your placement on your phone. Alternatively, buy the CSSPS evoucher from the placement portal to check your school placement.

How to Check BECE Placement on PC

In order for you to check your CSSPS placement online, follow the steps below;

  • The first step is to ensure you have the placement checker, which we will be selling when it is available.
  • Ensure that you have access to a computer that has Internet access.
  • Using your computer, visit the CSSPS result checker online portal: http://www.cssps.gov.gh/ or https://www.cssps.org/
  • Proceed to enter your BECE index number. It should be 10 digits. And also your year of examination. For example, if your index number is 1234567890 and the year of your examination is 2020, this is what you will input: 123456789020.
  • On your checker, you will get a serial number. Enter the serial number found on top the scratch card in the field designated for it.
  • Enter your PIN (Personal Identification Number) that will also be found on the scratch card you had purchased.
  • After you are done, you then click submit. Be patient and wait for the results window to pop up. If you are successful, the CSSPS placement checker print form option will appear. Click on print to print out your form.

The process is not, however, completely fault-proof.

You might experience some problems when going through with this process.

The most common problem is when you submit your details but the system seems not to recognize your details. So when messages like this pops up “Sorry the Index Number, Scratch Card Number/PIN Number does not exist. Please look carefully and retype.

Do not panic you will get the placement form eventually. Try again using the same scratch card. Do not be tempted to buy another scratch card because the fault is not on the scratch card.

Some of the reasons you might be experiencing challenges printing your admission forms include:

  • Large number: When a lot of people are checking their results on the website, it slows down. Therefore, you shouldn’t panic but just be patient.
  • Withheld results: You might also experience challenges if your results were received later than others. If the results are withheld, you can get them later so keep checking until you have them.
