The standard of the paper was high and compared favourably with those of previous
years. The rubrics were clear, concise and without any ambiguity. The questions were
well structured and achieved a wide coverage of the examinations syllabus. The marking
scheme was detailed, flexible and fair to candidates.
The raw mean score of 34 and standard deviation of 17.66 indicated that the performance
of candidates was poorer than that of the November/December 2009 WASSCE with a raw
mean score of 38 and standard deviation of 18.65.
