The standard of the paper compared well with those of previous years. As usual, the composition section had five topics: two letters (formal and informal), an article for publication in a national newspaper, a debate and storytelling.  The subjects were within the experience and competence of the candidates.

Though, candidates’ performance was about average, it declined when compared to that of the previous year.


The only remedy to poor performance is for schools to assist candidates to master the rudiments of the English Language. Candidates who do not know the grammar of the language, and who punctuate incorrectly will continue to perform poorly in this paper.
