Gov’t ends double-track system for SHS 1, SHS3 students


President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced an end to the double-track education system that was run for the Senior High students for first and third-years.

“I must stress that SHS 3 students in all schools, like SHS 1 students, will no longer run the double-track system. The expansion of infrastructure at the various senior high schools, over the last three years, has brought us to this favourable situation,” he stated.

This was made known during President Akufo-Addo 21st update on the country’s management of the coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic in Accra on Sunday, January 3, 2020.

He however said the double-track system will still be applicable to SHS 2 students in schools that are employing it.

The double-track system was introduced by the government in order to enable various senior high schools to take in more students and ensure that all students have access to senior high school education.

The Double Track System is in two sessions, thus The Green Track and The Gold Track.
