WASSCE 2020: Likely Integrated Science Questions Plus The WASSCE Timetable Released by WAEC

Finally, the West African Examination Council has released the long- awaited WASSCE timetable today, and I made sure to take screenshots of it for you guys ; you have to zoom it to be able to see it more clearly.

The Head of the Ghana National Office WAEC, Mrs Wendy Enyonam Addy - Lamptey said they had already begun printing copies of the timetable and are distributing them to all participating schools.Beside that, I have compiled more technical questions that have high chances of appearing in the coming WASSCE. And I hope that the questions I previously wrote in my last articles have been well answered. Without wasting much time, let us delve in quickly to the questions.

Effective Tips to Follow to Prepare Well For The WASSCE.

These tips are mine, and I they worked for me perfectly in my preparation for the WASSCE. As there are less than 15 days for the WASSCE to start,majority of the final year students would start to panic because they have the notion that, "they have not learnt all the topics and are lagging behind".

I never panicked when were even a day from writing our WASSCE, because I made sure that I bettered all the topics I had little understanding on; and this is a tip that greatly helped me.

Just make sure you improve on what you have learnt, and don't rush yourself to try to learn everything in the textbook. At these juncture, students who are not that good in class; they are not like the "sharks", these students will start to go near the "intelligent students" for help. And I tell you, most of these "intelligent students" would not help them because they would see them to be interrupting their studies.

The strategy I used was that I drew these students who were "not that sharp in class" to my side and they helped me a lot. Most of my friends I had in school were all seen as students who were not "sharp" and these "intelligent" students wonder why I always associated myself to them. During the preparation and writing of our WASSCE, I made sure I learnt the topics I had planned of studying, and I would get closer to my friends who were lagging behind in studies. I would make sure we solved random past questions, and i would pretend to not understand a question, this forced them to explain it to me to my understanding.

I made sure they believed in themselves that they could also pass the WASSCE unlike what some of the teachers and other "intelligent students" thought.

I would tell them we would wake up at a planned time at dawn, and when the time was due for us to wake up and go learn, they would be the ones to rather come wake me up from my bed.

I made sure I learnt what I needed to before going to study with them, so that I would be able to answer any question they asked me ; and that improved my studies and I was able to cover a lot of topics without even noticing.

And with these 13 days you have to start your WASSCE, there would be numerous questions people will start sending students as "appour", if you get lucky to get hold of these questions, just make sure you learn how to answer the questions very well and continue with your routine studies. Don't ever put your trust in these "appour" questions ;if these questions appear in your exam, lucky for you, but if they don't appear, it doesn't worry you in anyway because you didn't put all your trust in these questions unlike other students who stopped learning only because of these "appour".

And the last but not the least, pray to God before and after learning.

These will be the end of the tips, and please share these article to your classmates for they can benefit from this as you are doing.

If you have difficulties in learning, please don't hesitate to ask for help from your friends. Or you can ask for help by leaving your comments below, and everyone, including me, would help you in anyway we can. Thank you.
