GSM Phone Maintenance and Repair Paper 2, WASSCE (SC), 2017

General Comments

The paper is of equivalent standard with those of previous years. The questions were within scope and content of the syllabus.

The rubrics were clear and the marking scheme was quite adequate to accommodate varied and relevant responses by candidates. The responses of several candidates’ however, indicated lack of practical experience.

There is significant improvement in the candidates’ performance when compared with that of last year.  There was also noticeable improvement in the way candidates answered the essay questions. These can be attributed to increase in the level of awareness of the subject in schools as well as familiarity with GSM terminologies.
