Agriculture Paper 3, WASSCE (PC), 2018

General Comments

The paper compared favourably with those of previous years in standard, the skills tested and the coverage of the prescribed examination syllabus. The questions were straight forward and clearly itemized to ease comprehension.  The rubrics were clear and the marking scheme was flexible and exhaustive. 
Candidates’ performance was poorer than that of the previous year.  A total of 5,223 candidates sat for the paper with a raw mean score of 25.00 and a standard deviation of 9.75 as against a raw mean score of 27.00 and a standard deviation of 12.49 recorded in the 2017 NOV/DEC WASSCE (PRIVATE) which had candidates’ population of 61,138.
