General Comments


Candidates’ weaknesses as reflected in their work included:

(1)        Violation of rubrics
Many candidates failed to adhere to the rubrics of the paper and therefore answered more than the required number of questions.  They provided more than the needed answers to the questions.

(2)        Inadequate preparation
Many of the candidates did not prepare well for the examination. This led to their poor performance in it generally.

(3)        Misinterpretation of the questions
Many candidates failed to perform excellently because of their inability to identify what the questions demand. They therefore supplied wrong answers to the questions.

(4)        Skimpy answers
Most of the candidates were unable to explain their points; they only supplied skimpy answers to the questions. The answers provided were incomprehensive and lacked satisfactory details to convince the examiners to award them good marks.


  1. Candidates should learn how to interpret questions correctly;
  2. candidates should study well to improve their use of English language so as to be able to convey their ideas properly;
  3. qualified government teachers should be employed to teach students in schools;

  5. candidates should explain their points to earn full marks;
  6. candidates should be encouraged to study with past questions
