The Ghana Education Service (GES) has completed and placed all the candidates who passed their 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examinations, into the various senior high schools, technical and vocational institutes for the 2018/2019 academic year.

Results of the 509,827 candidates who sat for the exams were released by the West African Examination Council last week.

The entire results of 2,061 candidates were withheld pending the conclusion of investigations.

Those of 83 candidates were cancelled “for bringing mobile phones into the examination hall and receiving external assistance”.

One hundred and thirty-four had their subject results cancelled for bringing foreign materials into the exams centres.

Others among the 134 had their subject results cancelled for collusion and engaging in irregular activity during the exams.

According to the Council, it is investigating the alleged malpractices after which a determination would be made on either to release or cancel those results, a statement by the Council announcing the release of the BECE results said.

Meanwhile, the GES has asked the candidates who passed their exams to go to the Computer School Selection and Placement portal (www.cssps.gov.gh) to check the schools they have been placed.

Alternatively, candidates can check their placement by purchasing the CSSPS scratch card and texting the 10-digit code plus their index number to the shortcode 1060 on all mobile networks.
