Conclusion   

PRIVATE SHS and PRIVATE TVET SCHOOLS are not BENEFICIARIES of FREE SHS.                                Candidates who desire to pursue courses in private schools should make their own arrangements with the Private SH or PRIVATE TVET.

NOTE: Regardless of the categories chosen, candidates must arrange their choices in order of preference.
