National coordinator for CSSPS, Mark Sasu-Mensah, who made this known on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, Tuesday said the computerized placement system recognizes codes and not the programme or names of schools.
“We are aware of challenges students face anytime they are selecting schools. This is the time to alert them on how to go through the selection system without hindrances. They must first abide by guidelines. We want the students to understand that the computer does not recognize school or programmes. What the computerized system feeds on is the code and we have made provision for all schools to serve as a guide. The code of the school is 7 digits,” he said.
