BECE candidates awaiting placement into the various senior high schools have been given a two-week window opportunity to verify their school selection details and correct any errors on their forms.
From now till August 19, the candidates, both private and regular, are advised to text the short code *800*25# on their mobile phones to do the verification. Each text will cost one cedi on all mobile networks.
“Candidates with any errors or mistakes in their original school selection forms are to inform the District Director of Education in their respective Districts through their Heads of Junior High Schools,” the Ghana Education Service said in a statement Friday.
The confirmation process, according to the GES, is to ensure that schools chosen by candidates are exactly what GES has in its system for a hitch-free school placement this year.
It advised those with complaints have a covering letter from their head teachers with a photocopy of their signed original choice forms.
The GES has meanwhile asked the candidates to be careful of unscrupulous persons who may take advantage of the situation to deceive the public for their parochial interest.
