Kwaku Obeng Fosu, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ministry of Education (MoE), says there is no criteria for grouping students into either the GREEN TRACK or the GOLD TRACK.
“It is not like students with higher grades will be in a particular Track. The grouping is randomly done,’’ he stressed.
Speaking on ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show on Happy FM, Kwaku Obeng Fosu, explained how the much touted double-track system of enrollment will work. He said the GREEN TRACK will resume on 11th September, 2018, whereas the GOLD TRACK will resume on 8th November, 2018. He said students in both TRACKS will spend 41 days each,then both GREEN and GOLD TRACKS will be put together, to go for another 40 days making it 81 days per semester.
He also advised student enrolled on both the GREEN and the GOLD TRACKS to visit the schools they were placed, on re-opening day.
“They should not wait till the exact date on their ‘TRACKS’ to report to school,’’ he disclosed.
Already, Government has released a list of Senior High Schools that will be captured under the double-track enrolment system. 400 out of the 696 public Senior High Schools have been selected to operate the system.
According to the list, the double-track intake will bring the total of newly proposed enrolment to 387,592 students with 193,796 as the total double intake per track.
However, in a release by the GES, it said candidates are to visit www.cssps.gov.gh to access their placements.
