Motto: "Vouloir, C'est Pouvoir" (where there's a will, there's a way)
FOREWORD by Prof. Kofi Agyekum
A sizeable number of candidates continuously lose precious points simply because they are unable to comply fully with some acceptable norms of English grammar. Understanding your writing test in English: Titbits for school candidates has been primarily designed to point out some of the trouble-spots and suggest corresponding forms that academicians would like to see and read, so students of English writing at the B.E.C.E./W.A.S.S.C.E. level and beyond could arm themselves with the amount of self-confidence required to write the language.
