2023 school placement begins today for senior high schools and TVET institutions using CSSPS through a computerized selection and placement system
According to a press release from the Ministry of Education, 585,797 candidates qualified for placement out of a total of 598,839 results received from WAEC.
“A total of 477,772 (81.56%) have automatically been placed in one of their choices,” the ministry said in a statement.
According to the ministry, this is a significant improvement over last year.

However, 108,025 (18.44%) qualified candidates were unable to be matched with any of their preferred options.
As a result, the ministry has advised that all such students engage in self-placement and choose from available schools.
“Schools selected on the Self-Placement Portal can be changed as many times as the candidate wishes on the portal until they enroll in a school,” the Ministry of Education said.
Additionally, it reassured “all students, especially those who could not be matched with their choices during the automatic placement, parents, and the general public, that all schools with vacancies have been uploaded on the portal for students to select from during self-placement without hitches.”
The Education Ministry also advised students not to pay money to unscrupulous people who promise to change their schools, stating that “the computerized school placement is merit-based.”
Meanwhile, institutional heads will begin registration and orientation on December 4, 2023.
