Prospective Senior High School (SHS) students who are still yet to go through the placement registration have almost month more to do so, after it was confirmed that the date for final registration has been extended to the end of September.
A statement signed Friday by the Minister of Education, Mathew Opoku Prempeh, said the move was to ensure that every child who has gained admission into secondary school adequately goes through the placement.
According to the minister, the date for placement registration has now been extended to September ending, bringing to bed the confusion that had initially surrounded the whole process.
Sections of the statement read: "The Ministry assures parents and guardians that no child who qualified to be placed in a public senior high school will be left behind."
Some parents had complained bitterly about finding difficulties in registering their wards.
It is not immediately clear how many students are yet to be placed, but the Ghana Education Service (GES) has confirmed that so far over 400,000 JHS graduates currently have the schools of the choice.
Some students, though, are still unplaced, making it difficult for them to register.
Already, the placement registration process has been extended thrice, with this set to be the fourth time.
