For the first time in many years, all fresh and continuing students at the Senior High School level will begin the new academic year at the same time.

If this is achieved, it will reflect an improvement over the previous years’ challenges where enrolment of first year second cycle students delayed till late October due to problems associated with their placement by the Computer Schools Selection and Placement System, CSSPS.

The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who made this known in Kumasi, noted that management of the CSSPS is working hard to ensure all qualified Junior High School graduates are placed in their preferred second cycle schools by September 1.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh was speaking at the opening of the 12th Annual Delegates Congress of the National Association of Graduate Teachers, NAGRAT.
