Mr Asare, who believes the computerized school placement system puts students who completed private basic schools at a disadvantage, is advocating for raw scores to be used as a major factor in deciding who goes to what school.
He also wants the Senior High Schools to publish their cut-off points in order to address some of these challenges.
"Her heart and soul is in a particular school, and she has ‘killed herself’ but still…..she could have gotten same school with even 08-10 if she attended a public JHS.
Private schools abr3!. This is one of the reasons why i think we must choose our schools after BECE raw scores and aggregate results have been released; Then, publish the cut offs for every school prior to selection.

Joshua Owusu Yeboah:
I have some students from public school who had 8 and 9, yet they were not admitted to that school, so it isn't private school alone.
You will see grade 15, 20 and 30 getting admission ahead of her. Sad
My big boss,8-10 grade from public schools not easy ooh...
