The Computerized School Selection & Placement System aims to place BECE candidates who have chosen schools into their choice of Senior High Schools.
Whenever school placements are released, some unfortunate students have to go through a manual process to place themselves in vacant schools.
In this Article:
How the Computerized School Selection & Placement System (CSSPS) Works
The CSSPS works based on data collected from JHS students who have registered for the BECE. The students are allowed to choose 5 different schools that they will like to be placed in.
The Schools are grouped based on categories that have been set by the Ghana Education Service (GES). This is to enable an even distribution of choices and to give “smaller schools” the chance to be selected.
Once the system has this data (selection of schools), the system now uses the BECE results of the candidates to place them.
This is done by using the candidate’s aggregate score from 6 subjects for the selection process. These subjects are the 4 Core
(English Language, Mathematics Social Studies, Integrated Science) and the best two elective subjects.
Students are then automatically placed in an SHS on merit, based on their aggregate results, the programmes they chose, vacancies in the chosen SHS, and availability of boarding facilities for those who chose it.
However, oftentimes, some students are not placed at all and this leads to the need for them to do self-placement.
What is Self Placement by CSSPS?
The CSSPS Self Placement Module is a manual method by which BECE Graduates who could not be automatically placed in any of the Senior High Schools of their choice get to choose a school of their own.
Self Placement is very easy and fast once you have the right steps to follow. In this article, we have detailed all steps that all qualified Junior High School (JHS) students who didn’t get any of their 5 chosen schools should follow to get a school.
Who qualifies for self Placement?
Only Students who could not be placed automatically by the CSSPS can take part in the self placement process.

Checking of your CSSPS Ghana results has over the years become an easier task.
Now, the candidates are able to check their results in the comfort of their homes. Not only that, you can check your results regardless of where you are in the world at that moment using your computer.
The Ghana Education Service has given different ways in which you can check your CSSPS placement results. They have outlined two methods of checking your WAEC Ghana placement;
1. You can check your results online using a computer.
2. You can check using Google Chrome Browser on your mobile phone.
How to check BECE Placement Online on a mobile phone or 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
- 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 2021, 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 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 pop 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.
Why check SHS placement early?
There are several reasons why you should try and be the early bird when checking the placement results.
- You get to know early the school you have been posted to This will help you plan ahead. Planning ahead is very important because you may have been placed in a school that is far from your home and you will now have to go early and give them your placement form as you get the requirements for joining the school.
- What if the school you have been placed in is not to your liking or does not offer the course you want? It is important to know early on if the school they have picked for you is the one you want and if it is not, you can start finding alternative options before it is too late.
- What if you feel that they were unfair in the placement late on? This is a very disheartening situation. Checking early will ensure that you are ready for whatever outcome and that you will be able to sort those issues early on.
