According to her, they should ensure that no prospective student is rejected, even if it means creating a space for accommodation on verandas.

Reports reaching YEN indicate that some schools are under intense infrastructural constraints, as the number of first years to be admitted exceeds the capacity of the schools.

It is alleged that over 200 people were turned away by Ofori Panyin Senior High School, because there were neither classrooms nor dormitories to accommodate them.

Mamfe Methodist Girls SHS is also reported to have rejected over 400 prospective students because of inadequate accommodation facilities.
