English Paper 2 WASSCE (PC), 2017

General Comments


The standard of the paper compared favorably with those of previous years. The tests were on informal letter, article for publication, official letter, debate and storytelling, all of which were within the experience and competence of the candidates. Similarly, the subject matter of the Comprehension and Summary passages were quite topical and within the experience of the candidates.

Though the questions were unambiguous and within the scope of the syllabus, there was a decline in the performance of the candidates.
