The SHS or TVETs will also have a list of all students, their names, Full grades and the courses they are coming to offer.
Visit your new school check the notice Board, and make sure your name is there.

Can I Change my course when I go to the school(SHS)

Yes, Most schools allow you to change your course if you think you can not do it.

The only difficulty is not choosing science and trying to change your course to do science. Most schools will not allow you do do so.

Some schools too will write entrance exams for those who wish to do science and if you pass you will be admitted into the science program.

The change of program can be done in the school, do not pay monies to people to change the course for you.

The various courses also have sub-courses or difference. eg

General Arts classes are divided sometimes into 5 or 6 or more depending on the schools capacity

Some of the General Arts students will do Geography

Others will do French

Few will do Local languages etc

The science depending on the school will also have separate courses

Agriculture science

Science without Biology but rather Technical

Science without Biology but rather Geography

Some ICT etc.

You must know what you want to do in future to be able to select the best combination.

During the Selection most students follow their new friends to chose the combination and not because of what they want to do with it.

Proper counselling and parental guidance to be able to make the right choice.

Where the exams questions come from

Because they are new and young most of the examination questions are from the Basic school syllabus(JHS) concentrating on the BECE they wrote or something around those topics that came in their BECE.

You need to let your ward especially those going to do science to read again the BECE they wrote, ask them if they can really solve it now. Supervise them to get all the answers correct. They must keep learning.

If possible allow your ward to have some classes before school resumes. Most of the subjects offered  will be really new and will need a little bit faster teaching than at the JHS. Help your ward. By giving them that foundation to the course.
