The double track Education System was an innovative measure, introduced by the government and the management of Ghana Education Service in 2018 to take the increasing number of students into the Free Senior High School policy, as a measure to get all Ghanaian students on board on the Free Senior High School policy.
The introduction of the double track system has made it possible for oversubscribed schools to take up to fifty percent more of their capacity in addition to the available vacancies in the single track.
Double Track has made it possible for students who may not get placement into the high demand schools to get placement.
The so-called big schools or category A schools are taking in more students.
Students who may have gone to category B and C schools are now getting admissions into the Category A Schools through the double track system, and particularly, the computer placement.
This has reduced the enrollment figures of the Category B and C schools. Category B and C schools with enrollment capacity of one thousand students are now struggling to enroll two hundred.
Less than a hundred schools out of the four hundred selected double track schools are able to enroll up to their full capacity of the school.
With this, we can deduce that not all the four hundred Senior High Schools would be needed for the double track system.
