Physics (Essay) Paper 2 WASSCE (PC 2ND), 2018

General Comments on the paper as whole



The standard of the paper compared favorably with that of previous years. The questions were clear and unambiguous. Also, the performance of candidates compares with previous years. However, the performance as usual separates the candidates according to their academic strength. The rubrics were clear and in simple language. The marking schemes were adequate with no ambiguity. The various domains of assessment were adequately covered. The candidates’ raw mean score of 26 out of 50 and a standard deviation of 11.58 with a candidature of 6,041 indicates a better performance than that of WASSCE for Private Candidate 2018, when a raw mean score of 18 out of 50 marks and a standard deviation of 08.31 with a candidature of 5,520 was recorded.
