The standard of the paper is about the same as those of previous years. The composition tests were on topics that are within the experience of senior secondary school leavers - an informal letter to a sister, an official letter to the Minister of Transport, an article for publication in a national newspaper, a debate and story writing.
The comprehension topics were quite simple, and dealt with very familiar subjects.
The summary passage was easy. It required just careful reading to pick out the information for answering the questions. However, Candidates' performance was poorer than those of previous years.
Teachers should pay attention to the teaching of the skills of writing, comprehension and summary. This will help students to acquire the needed skills to interpret questions and answer them correctly.
