Speaking in an interview on Joy FM, Cassandra Twum Ampofo Head, Public Relations Unit at the Ghana Education Service assured candidates who have not been placed that there were a number of schools available for their selection.
Speaking on why they were not placed, she said,
“They were not placed because they did not get any of their choice of schools, they were asked to choose five schools and so per your grade you obtained, if your grade is A, B, C, or D, and you fall out from the first choice, you move to the next choice and so on, so per the grade you had, if you are not able to get any of the schools you choose, then you will be unplaced.
“We do not go to place schools they did not choose themselves, there are a number of the schools that have vacancies online, so they can choose from these schools, “Twum Ampofo assured.
