What to do after checking your School placement

Once the placement letter has been printed, the candidate should visit the school that they have been placed in and complete the registration process. It is important to note that due to the high demand for senior high school education, not all qualified BECE candidates will be placed in their desired schools.

Candidates should therefore make sure they check their placement early and visit the schools they have been placed in to ensure they secure their desired school placement.

Checking on time will help you to prepare early for your SHS journey or fix errors incase you were placed in a wrong institution.
