The Ghana Education Service (GES) has alleged that, amongst other challenges the Computerized School Selection and Placement System is faced with, it was hacked.
A Deputy Director General at the GES, Dr. K.B. Tandoh, said some saboteurs both within and outside the country, are responsible for the hack.
Dr. K.B. Tandoh, while speaking on Citi TV’s Point of View show said the hackers were preventing a smooth process.
“There was some sabotage, in terms of people trying to penetrate the system. People who didn’t want the system to work and so there were cyber issues happening where people were trying to enter the system. From both home and abroad.
Meanwhile, a former Coordinator of the Computerized School Selection Placement System (CSSPS), Dr. George Atta-Boateng, has partly blamed the challenges with the placement of SHS students on the new software being used for the placement.
Dr. George Atta-Boateng said the solution will be to use the raw scores of students.
