Most senior High School graduates has been suffering because of their results that they get after school. Some of them cannot go to tertiary institutions because of their results. The last grade that tertiary institutions in Ghana accept is C6. So most of the SHS graduates cannot go to tertiary because they are having D7, E8, and F9 in their WASSCE results. But there is good news for Senior High School graduates that have D7 E8 and F9 in their results.
Proper management is ongoing to accept these graduates to pursue education into higher level. In Ghana The West Africa Examination Council recognize D7 as a pass mark but this grade is not accepted in the various tertiary institutions to pursue a degree programme.
Proper management is still ongoing to pave way for senior high school graduates with D7 E8 and F9 to also have access to pursue education into higher level.
According to the Chairman of the University Administrators in Ghana, Professor Kwesi Yankah , all Senior High school graduates with D7 should be given the chance to further their education depending on the field the student wants to pursue. For instance, a student may get one D7 but will be abandoned to go to university,meanwhile, some students with C6 through out have been given admission. This is the time Ghanaians should react fast and depend on the programme the student wants to pursue.
Professor Kwasi Yankah stated this at a virtual Graduation ceremony at one of the renowned universities in Ghana that can be located in the Bono Region. We are hoping that Senior High School graduates with D7, E8, and F9 will be given admission into our various tertiary institutions soon. Please share, like and comment on this article.
