SUMMARY

Answer All the questions in this section. You are advised to spend about 50 minutes on this section.

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions on it.

A recent noticeable trend in the education sector is the high rate of failure by candidates in public examinations. Why do students fail? This is a question that has been a source of worry, anxiety and concern to all stakeholders in the education of the young ones ¬¨¬¨‚Äď government, teachers, educationists, parents and so on.

The factors responsible for the failure of candidates in examinations are many and varied.

Let us consider the students themselves. Many of the students do not really take their students seriously. Instead of facing their studies, they prefer watching videos, playing games and lazing about. They engage themselves in many activities which are detrimental to their progress. They thus fail to prepare for their examinations. You remember the saying? ‚Äst ‚ÄėTo fail to prepare is to prepare to fail‚Äô- or what miracle does one expect to happen when an unserious student sits for an examination?

Teachers have a lion’s share of the blame. Majority of the teachers are no longer devoted or dedicated or committed to their jobs. Some of them skip lessons. Some of them have some other private businesses which they pay greater attention to. Many of them are not even bothered whether or not their students do well and yet they spend more time agitating for more pay. The devotion, the dedication and the commitment associated with teaching in the days of old are almost gone.

The quality of many teachers nowadays is nothing to write home about. Many of them have a haphazard or smattering knowledge of the subject matter or topic they teach. In some cases it is just like the blind leading the blind. Unfortunately, many of them are too lazy to read about the subject matter they teach. The result is that little or no learning takes place after the teacher has taught.

Parents too are to blame. Many parents fail to cater for the needs of their children. Many of them do not provide textbooks and other educational materials for their wards. Their priority is not the education of their children. Whilst many of them can, and do spend colossal amounts of money on frivolities e.g burying their dead relations or ‚Äėturning the side‚Äô of their long forgotten dead parents, they fail to provide essential educational materials for their wards. One wonders how a child can perform well without good textbooks and instructional materials.

The society itself contributes much to the failure of students in examinations through its wrapped value system. The society places much emphasis on money and what money can buy. Anyone who acquires wealth through whatever means- fair means, foul means, any means at all ‚Äď is made an object of worship. Since the child has observed that money is regarded as the all in all, he doesn‚Äôt see the need to receive education. His main concern is how to acquire money. His mind is far away from the classroom environment. The societal value system thus serves as a disincentive to education.

Another contributory factor is the loss of the reading culture. In the olden days, every student had to read at least a novel a term. The result was that spoke and wrote good English. In addition, students read their textbooks and relevant books from cover to cover. Nowadays, even the recommended texts are not read. Similarly, many teachers themselves hardly read anything extra apart from the textbooks which the use in preparing their notes of lessons.

If the situation is to change therefore, everybody must be involved in a new reorientation.

In six sentences, one for each, state the factors responsible for the high rate of failure of students in public examinations according to the writer.

SECTION B:    COMPREHENSION 

Answer all the questions in this section. You are advised to spend about 50 minutes on this section.

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions on it.

He bid me observe it, and I should always find that the calamities of life were shared among the upper and lower parts of mankind, but that the middle station had the fewer disasters, and was not exposed to so many vicissitudes as the higher or lower parts of mankind. No, they were not subjected to so many distempters and uneasinesses either of body or mind. This is unlike those who, by vicious living, luxury and extravagances on one hand, or by hard labor, want of necessaries, and mean or insufficient diet on the other hand, bring distempers upon themselves by the natural consequences of their way of living. It is said that the middle station of life was calculated for all kinds of virtues and all kinds of enjoyment, that peace and plenty were the handmaids of a middle fortune. It is also believed that temperance, moderation, quietness and health were blessings attending the middle station of life. In this way men went silently and smoothly through the world, and comfortably out of it, not sold to the life of slavery for daily bread, or harassed with perplexed circumstances, which rob the soul of peace, and the body of rest; not enraged with the passion of envy, or secret burning lust of ambition for great things; but in easy circumstances sliding gently through the world, and sensibly tasting the sweets of living.

After this, he pressed me earnestly, and in most affectionate manner, not to play the young man, not to precipitate myself into miseries which Nature and the station of life I was born in seemed to have provided against. He also told me I was under no necessity of seeking my bread. He assured me that he would do well for me; and that if I was not very easy and happy in the world it must be my mere fate of fault that must hinder it. He further told me that he should have nothing to answer for; having thus discharged his duty in warning me against measures which he knew would be to my hurt.

QUESTIONS

(A)          Into how many classes, according to the writer, is society divided and how do you identify each class?

(B)          What are the characteristics of the lower class which the writer mentions first?

(C)          What are the natural consequences of the way of living of the upper class?

(D)          Into what type of life has the person being addressed in passage been born and what type of life is the writer recommending to him?

(E)          Why did the writer say that he would have nothing to answer for?

(F)¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ‚Äė‚Ķ peace and plenty were the handmaids of a middle fortune.‚Äô

What figure of speech is used in the above expression?

(G)¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ‚Äė‚Ķ that the calamities of life were shared among the upper and lower parts of mankind ‚Ķ‚Äô

(i)            What grammatical name is given to the above expression as used in the passage?

(ii)           What is its function?

(H)          For each of the following words, find another word or phrase which means the same and can replace it as it is used in the passage.

(i)            calamities

(ii)           necessaries

(iii)          consequences

(iv)         calculated

In the following passages, the numbered gaps indicate missing words. Against each number in list below each passage, four options are offered in columns lettered A to D. Choose the word that is the most suitable to fill the numbered gap in the passage.

Passage

            Oil is perhaps the most sought after of all natural resources. However, a major difficulty in its research is that oil mines are very often found below the sea shore. As a result, the search for oil is very expensive, and unless oil is found there in -71- quantities the companies or governments involved are liable to lose heavily. Therefore, before -72- starts, extensive surveys are carried out to see how much oil, or -73- gas the rock formation is likely to yield. If the results are favourable an oil rig is towed into position. The rig consists of a main -74- on which the men work and a derrick which supports the drill. This drill goes down thousands of feet until oil or a -75- of gas is reached. The next stage is to transport the gas or oil to the shore. In the case of gas, this is normally done by laying a -76- below the sea, but oil on reaching the top of the well is more often transported in its -77- state by -78-. On shore it is -79- into different fuels or it is treated chemically to turn it into a variety of -80- materials such as polythene.
