Analysis Of School Placement Statistics
According to Eduwatch, in 2019 when 74% of candidates were placed automatically, there were several issues with the self-placement system.
Apart from increased traffic leading to jamming and poor accessibility, at a point, the website was even hacked.
This was when 122,706 candidates had to go through self-placement which ended up becoming a manual placement occasioned by chaotic scenes at the Independence Square.
This year, only 69% secured automatic placement, meaning from Monday, about 151,266 students will be going through self-placement i.e. 30,000 students more than that of 2019.
Since this exercise is the last for the out-going Minister of Education, one can only hope that adequate remedial measures arising out of lessons from 2019 have been put in place to ensure increased system security, accessibility, efficiency and effectiveness.
Eduwatch says it is their expectation that the Ministry of Education (MoE) increases the security on the website and expand the capacity of same to accommodate the expectant higher traffic.
