The 2023 Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) into Senior High Schools and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Schools (TVET) has gone live today.
In a press statement from the Ministry of Education, out of the total number of 598,839 results received from WAEC, 585,797 candidates qualified to be placed.
“A total of 477,772 (81.56%) have automatically been placed in one of their choices,” the ministry stated
This, according to the ministry, is a significant improvement compared to last year.
However, 108,025 (18.44%) qualified candidates could not be matched with any of their choices.
The ministry has thus advised that all such students engage in ‘self–placement’ to select from available schools.
“Schools Selected on Self-Placement Portal can be changed as many times as the candidate wishes on the portal until they enroll in a school,” the ministry stated.
It further assured “all students, especially those who could not be matched with their choices during the automatic placement, parents and the general public that all schools with vacancies have been uploaded on the portal for students to select from during self-placement without hitches.”
The Education Ministry also warned against paying money to unscrupulous persons who promise to change the schools of students, stating that “the Computerized School Placement is merit-based.”
Meanwhile, Heads of Institutions are to begin registration and orientation from 4th December 2023.
