About 400,000 Free SHS beneficiaries are expected to complete school and seek university admission next year. There is also a backlog of about 200,000 students, created by merging two batches of SHS 4 and SHS 3 students who sat for the West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination in 2013.
Prior to the free SHS, schools levied students to purchase textbooks which were adopted and used to facilitate easy referencing, note making and served as a guide for learning in the absence of a teacher.
The Deputy Education Minister, Yaw Osei Adutwum, has admitted that the Free SHS has had challenges from the very beginning. Labeling them as “teething problems,” he spoke about how the infrastructure and other logistics have brought issues but assured that the ministry is working to address them.
