There are reports however, of parents and candidates still hunting for placement as the deadline draws near. 

The GES is directing candidates to go to to secure placement. An earlier directive contained in a statement signed by the Ag. Director-General Prof. Kwaku Opku-Amankwa, had asked those affected to “go to the official website for the process.

It also cautioned that once a candidate completes the process and hits the submit button, the choice cannot be changed.
