General Comments


Some of the weaknesses observed in the candidates’ scripts are:

-        Insufficient Knowledge of the Subject matter:  Majority of the candidates did not have good understanding and knowledge of the subject, as a result they could not satisfactorily attempt some questions on insurance terms and concepts packaging, and contract of  sale of goods which were in questions 4, 5 and 6 respectively.

-        Poorly usage of English grammar: Most candidates could not explain their points in correct English grammar, thus they lost valuable marks.

-        Majority of candidates avoided question 8 which was on calculation of assets, liabilities and capital.


  1. The candidates should be encouraged to study standard and comprehensive text books on commerce in their preparation for the examination rather than relying on key-points.
  2. The teachers should endeavour to teach the candidates all aspect of syllabus.  This will enable the candidates deepen their knowledge of the subject.
  1. Government and proprietors should endeavour to recruit qualified Business Education graduates to teach the subject. They should also ensure continuous training of the teachers.
  2. The candidates should endeavour to learn the rules of English grammar so as to enable them express their points clearly.
