General Comments


(1) Inadequate preparation
From the scanty nature of the points raised by many candidates, it is obvious that such candidates did not fully prepare for the examination. It is recommended that candidates start reading for the examinations early enough so that they could cover the syllabus before the commencement of the examination .
(2) Poor presentation of maps
Many candidates drew poor maps of Nigeria and Africa. Such maps had no keys and features were wrongly positioned. It is recommended that candidates put good effort into the practice of map drawing and representation of geographical features since this is a regular aspect of testing in the final examinations. (3)Inadequate explanation of points
Some candidates failed to explain the points that were raised for the questions they attempted. Such candidates merely listed the points. Mere listing does not merit full marks for many Geography questions. Candidates should put in extra efforts to explain the points they use in answering questions as this will earn them better marks.
(4)Poor grammatical expression
Some candidates used incorrect grammar in answering the questions. Such poor expression made it difficult for examiners to understand what they really mean. Candidates are encouraged to improve their grammar through
reading of novels, textbooks, journals, newspapers etc to improve their power of communication.
