candidates weakness/remedies

The inadequanecies in the performance of candidates were attributed to the following weaknesses:

  •   poor interpretation of questions
  •   poor skill in arithmetic
  •   inadequate knowledge of basic concepts in Physics
  •   inability to apply knowledge sufficiently

The suggested remedies were as follows:

  • physics teachers should strive harder to ensure adequate coverage of the syllabus at all times.
  • meaningful test items should be administered from time to time, and matched with true assessments.
  • enough time should be allocated for physics on schools time table.
  • teachers adequacy should be examined by seasoned and more experienced physics teachers to create rooms for improvement in delivery.
  • physics teachers should participate in WASSCE coordination exercise.
  • WAEC should make impromptu inspection of schools’ laboratories in order to checkmate inadequacies.
  • school libraries should be stocked with enough recommended physics textbooks.
