The Ghana Education Service (GES) has indicated that it will organize the second edition of the aptitude test for 2021 after the February 2021 edition. In the maiden GES Promotion Aptitude Test conducted in February this year, over 15,000 teachers could not make it through. This is because most of them were alien to the areas the exams covered and most promotion books in town did not cover these areas.
Additionally, most applicants complained that they were not adequately prepared for the Test, a development contributing to their inability to make it. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the teacher to abreast him/herself with the examinable areas.
Teachers who will are due for promotion are therefore urged to take note of the following examinable areas and prepare adequately for the upcoming aptitude test.
The following are the examinable areas of the aptitude test conducted by GES:
° The History of Education
° Educational Policy and School Reforms
° Classroom Management
° Educational Leadership
° Management and Administration
° Theories of Learning
° Curriculum Assessment and Evaluation
° General Knowledge of GES and MOE
° Information on the Common Core Programme
° Past Questions and Suggested Answers of previous Promotion Aptitude Tests and Interviews
WHEN WILL THE REGISTRATION PORTAL BE OPENED FOR THE 2021 AUGUST GES PROMOTION APTITUDE TEST?
Currently, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has not revealed the actual date when the portal for August 2021 will be opened for teachers who are due for promotion to apply. But as the service indicated earlier, the aptitude test is set to come off in August hence, the need for prospective applicants to prepare adequately.
