Best Web Browsers to do 2024 ‘SHS/TVET’ Self-Placement

The 2024 SHS/TVET self-placement season is approaching, and choosing the right web browser is important for a successful experience. While the Ghana Education Service (GES) recommends Chrome, there might be a hidden champion in the race for the smoothest self-placement journey.

Understanding the Self-Placement Landscape:

The Self-Placement system allows students to actively choose available schools through the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) based on their grades. However, studies suggest a potential disparity. Students in urban areas with reliable internet access might have a slight advantage compared to those in rural areas with limited connectivity.

Alternative Suggestion: Mozilla Firefox

Based on our experience with the CSSPS portal, we suggest considering Mozilla Firefox. Here’s why:

  • Reduced Timeouts: Firefox might be better at handling heavy traffic situations, potentially reducing connection timeouts that can delay your school selection. This is crucial during the self-placement period when many students will be accessing the portal simultaneously.
  • Security and Privacy: Firefox prioritizes user privacy and offers strong security features, which might be important considerations for some students.

Additional Tips for a Smooth Self-Placement:

  • Update your browser: Regardless of your choice, ensure your browser is up-to-date for optimal performance and security.
  • Reliable internet connection: A stable internet connection is crucial to avoid delays and ensure a smooth experience.
  • Familiarize yourself: Before the self-placement window opens, familiarize yourself with the CSSPS portal to avoid last-minute surprises.
  • Technical support: In case of technical difficulties, seek help from the GES or a trusted adult.
