When will 2022 SHS School Selection Portal be opened?
Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) has disclosed that, the 2022 SHS School Selection will commence from Monday, 14th Nevember, 2022 to 28th November, 2022.
In order to do the exercise faster and efficiently, Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education are to form teams of ICT Teachers/Data Entry Officers to support the Examination Coordinators and Headteacher do the entries of the candidates’ choices.
