English Paper 2 WASSCE (SC), 2019

General Comments


The standard of the paper compared favourably with those of previous years.               The composition section tests the usual writing skills: informal letter, article for publication, official letter, speech writing 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. The rubrics were clear and the marking scheme was comprehensive. Candidates’ performance improved when compared with that of previous years.
