Geography Paper 2 WASSCE (PC), 2017


Highlighted below are a summary of the weaknesses noted on the candidates’ scripts:

  1. Poor map work

A high proportion of the candidates could not draw good sketch maps of Nigeria. Such candidates could not properly insert the required features since the outlines were poorly drawn.

  1. Listing of points:

Mere listing of points for questions that required outlining, stating, explaining or highlighting which led to loss of precious marks.

  1. Poor expressions

Some candidates expressed their points poorly because of poor command of English.


  1. Incomplete coverage of the syllabus

From the sketchy answers to some of the questions by some candidates, it could be inferred that such candidates did not fully cover the syllabus before the commencement of the examination.
