Ann-Marie Faith – eish 35?.. i had 9 in my time but was shy to even tell people cos all my friends had 6 ones.. indeed afe biaa ni mu nsem..
anyway, maybe the one who got 39 didn’t choose a grade A school as first choice that’s why she had it..
Abdul Karim Bassit Bawa – You take aggregate 35 to Aburi,Mfantseman and Aggrey memorial. herrr this woman fit take Health insurance go America
Boadi Kwame Nyansaboakwa Martinson – The problem is the course some the children choose determine the school they get.
Everybody want to do science. Vacancy for science is very limited in schools because it requires high mental application.
Two students I know, one chose science at presec he had 09 but got his fourth choice Aburaman.
Another chose Accra Academy and chose G. Arts. He got 11 but got his first choice.
I always advise them if you want your first choice choose non science courses. When you get, you can internally arrange for change of course.
35 and you are fighting boi
George Amoah – IT CAN NEVER BE TRUE THAT,AGGREGATE 39 WILL GET 1ST CHOICE.YOU PEOPLE WATCH MOVIES WITH YOUR KIDS,AND YOU EXPECT THEM TO GET CORRECT GRADE.YOUR THERE MAKING UNNECESSARY COMMENTS BECAUSE OF GRADE 35.
