The Ghana Education Service has announced that results of the candidates who sat for the 2016 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) will be released on September 13, 2016.

Public Relations officer of the Ghana Education Service, Rev. Jonathan Bettey who confirmed this to Pulse.com.gh said “WAEC will release the results on the 13th. Initially, they [WAEC] were saying 12th that is why it came to public notice that it was 12th, but today they had a meeting and they said 13th.”

He said the release of the results will enable successful and qualified candidates to enter Senior High Schools and Technical Institutes across the country.

A total of 461,013 candidates from 14,267 public and private junior high schools sat for the exam that was conducted by the West African Examination Council [WAEC] between June 13 and 17, 2016.

The candidates were made up of 239,963 males and 221,050 females as well as 57 visually impaired.

There were earlier reports that some candidates risk getting posted under the Computerised Schools Selection Placement System [CSSPS] to any of the four schools they selected because some of the schools have failed to forward the data of their students for processing.

But Rev Bettey debunked those reports, saying processes are far advanced to ensure that students get their schools of choice.

The Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) last week announced that candidates who are willing to change their schools and courses will have the opportunity to do so ahead of the release of the results.

However, the GES PRO said the opportunity to change schools “is almost over because it’s getting close to getting the results.”

“When we get the results, we can’t change it again,” Rev Bettey explained.
