Analysis of Basic Mathematics subject
The analysis shows that, the candidates performed well in the question that was set from the topic of Accounts; averagely in the question that was set from the topic of Statistics and had weak performance in the questions that were set from the topics of
- Matrices and Transformations,
- Rates and Variation,
- Coordinate Geometry,
- Quadratic Equations,
- Linear Programming,
- Sequences and Series,
- Geometry and
The candidates’ weak performance was due to the following reasons:
1. inability to identify the requirements of the questions;
2. inability to correctly perform mathematical operations;
3. failure to formulate equations/inequalities from given information,
4. inability to correctly represent given information in diagrams;
5. lack of skills to draw graphs; failure to follow given instructions;
6. inadequate knowledge and skills in using the laws, formulae, theorems and other mathematical concepts in answering the questions and substituting incorrect data in these formulae.
