- According to the GES, 8% of the candidates attained a grade 9 in either Mathematics or English

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has indicated that 92% of the candidates who sat for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) would qualify to advance to the Senior High School (SHS) level.
This follows a release of this year’s results by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
The acting Director-General of GES, Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa mentioned that the details of the 92%, representing 424,092 candidates, would be available on the Computerized School Selection System Placements (CSSPS).
The remaining 8% (36, 849) were unable to secure placement, because they scored a Grade 9 in either English or Mathematics.
