Agriculture Paper 3, WASSCE (PC 2ND), 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 43,005 candidates sat for the paper with a raw mean score of 24 and a standard deviation of 11.53 as against a raw mean score of 27 and a standard deviation of 12.49 recorded in the NOV/DEC WASSCE (PRIVATE), 2017 which had candidates’ population of 61,138.
