Candidates' weaknesses
Some of the weaknesses observed in candidates’ scripts were:
  1. Poor preparation for the examination, some candidates answers showed inadequate knowledge of the subject matter for example candidate performed poorly in questions number 1, 4 and 8 which was  on occupation, factor of production, means of payment, explanation of business terms, sources of capital and factors to be considered when giving loans respectively.
  2. Lack of examination technique.  Few candidates did not take note of the rubrics; hence, they answered two questions on the same page instead on the separate pages.


  • Candidates should cover all aspects of the syllabus in commerce in good time so as to have enough time for revision before the commencement of the examination.
  • Qualified teachers of commerce should be employed to teach commerce in Schools and recommended textbooks should be studied by the candidates in order to improve on their knowledge of the subject.
  • Teachers should teach the candidates examination techniques’ to enhance their performance.
