General Comments

The standard of the paper compared very well with those of the previous years. The questions and the rubrics were framed in simple language and unambiguous. The paper tested candidates' ability to: list; state; explain; define; name; draw; illustrate; determine; recall; comprehend; calculate and apply concepts to solve numerical problems and relate such concept to explain everyday observations.

The marking scheme was quite detailed and generous. The time allocation for the paper was
quite adequate.

There was a slight fall in candidates' performance compared to that of last year. The candidates' population of 127,326 recorded a raw mean score of 15 and a standard deviation of 8.77 as against a raw mean score of 16 and a standard deviation of 10.10 in the November/December 2009 WASSCE with a candidature of 137,127.
