The Ghana Education Service (GES) has announced that this year's school placement for the 2020 BECE candidates will be released on Sunday, February 21, 2021.

The Director-General of the GES, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, has stated that the placement will cover candidates, both from school and private, as well as other re-entrants.

According to him, there is no need for both the parents and their wards to panic over not being placed.

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa explained that unlike the previous years, due to COVD-19, the GES will be setting up call centres to receive and work on issues people may be coming up with, with regards to their placements.

He said at such centres, they could address technical issues and also the issue of a day student placed in a distant school.

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa also stated that there had been no delay in the placement of candidates as some people were speculating.

He said the same format that was used during the pre-COVID-19 era was what the GES had stuck to this year.
