General Comments

(a)        Candidates’ Weaknesses

Majority of the candidates were reported to have showed that they had little
understanding of the contents of the examination syllabus. This was evident in
their responses to:
(i)         acronyms;
(ii)        basic programming and
(iii)       use of keywords in defining terms.

(b)       Suggested Remedies

It was suggested that, to correct these weaknesses:

  • that candidates be exposed to more laboratory sessions to enable them develop appropriate skills and hence, deeper understanding of the syllabus content;
  • the subject should be handled by qualified and well-motivated teachers;
  • efforts should be made to expose the candidates to the basics, principles and theories of this subject.
