Listen to article

Parents and guardians have been urged to take the registration under the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) seriously and select schools where their children and wards had brighter chances of gaining admission.

Mr Andrew A. Akuoku, Coordinator of the CSSPS, said this is possible if parents choose schools that offer programmes of their children and wards.

He said referring to the West African Examination Council (WAEC) register of schools, avoiding double shading and involving teachers during the registration exercise to cross-check the forms were some of the solutions to problems encountered in the registration exercise.

Mr Akuoko reminded parents that selection of candidates is based on scores of six subjects, comprising four core subjects - English Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies - for Senior Secondary Schools its English Language, Mathematics, Science, Pre-Technical Skills for Technical Institutes and two other best subjects.

He said a candidate's grade in any of the four core subjects should not exceed Grade five and that for the two other best subjects, it must not exceed Grade six and if added to the grades of the four subjects must not exceed a total of 30.
