Suggested Remedies

It was suggested that to remedy this weakness:

- exposure of candidates to variety of practical sessions as possible in the use of measuring instruments is necessary;

- stakeholders should provide functional electrical equipments, tools, instruments and consumables to secondary schools for practical session to ease transfer of formidable psycho-skills before examinations;

- subject tutors were encouraged to master the use of electrical measuring instruments to offer effective tutorship to candidates.
