A 16-year-old Junior High School (JHS) graduate named Elvis has opened up about how the school placement system chose a school in the Ashanti region for him.
YEN.com.gh understands that he chose schools in the Central region but he was denied access to all of them.
The schools he chose were Adisadel College, Ghana National, Apam SHS, and Awutu-Winneba SHS.
Elvis, who attended Budumburam DA Basic School, added that he was given quite a number of choices in the Ashanti region.
His attempt to get the issue resolved led to a trip to Accra as officials in his locality directed him to come to the capital.
