General Comments


Majority of the candidates were unable to.
state the methods of propagating specimens J (yam tuber), K (plantain), and L (tomato fruit);
describe briefly the methods of planting specimens J (yam tuber), K(plantain) and L (tomato fruit);
make a drawing 8 - 10cm long of a longitudinal section of specimen Q(udder) as observed with the aid of specimen S(handlens); state the economic uses of specimens O(feathers) and P(hoof).

Deriving from these weaknesses, the chief examiners recommended that:
(1) the skills of drawing should be imparted in the students during the teaching of agricultural science;
(2) the teaching and learning of agriculture should be made more practical oriented with adequate exposure of candidates to experimental and laboratory activities;
(3) candidates should be made to practicalize the various aspects of crop and animal husbandry for an in-depth understanding of the subject matter.
