General Comments


         The Chief Examiner reported that some candidates’ responses indicated poor understanding and application of some basic mathematical principles and concepts, hence candidates’ weakness in the following areas:


(1)       Circle geometry;
(2)       Geometrical construction;
(3)       Mensuration of three dimensional shapes;
(4)       Reading from graphs;
(5)       Writing answers to the required degree of accuracies;
(6)       Trigonometry.
             The following suggestions were proffered

  1. Teachers and candidates were encouraged to cover all the topics in the syllabus while preparing for the examinations;
  2. More effort should be put into the teaching and learning of various mathematical concepts and theories. The use of teaching aids should be emphasized;
  3. Adequate supervision of the teaching and learning of Mathematics was encouraged;
  4. Appropriate authorities should encourage qualified Mathematics teachers to teach the subject;
  5. Training and refresher courses should be organized for teachers in order to ensure improvement in the quality of teaching;
  6. Candidates were encouraged to expose themselves to past WASSCE question papers;
  7. Candidates should adequately prepare for examinations.
