2013 GCE/2014 SSCE LITERATURE CANDIDATES… BEWARE OF THE SO-CALLED “CURRENT WAEC SYLLABUSES” CIRCULATING ON THE NET! (12)

MOST OF THE SO-CALLED “CURRENT LITERATURE SYLLABUSES”  (AND THOSE OF OTHER SUBJECTS) BEING CIRCULATED ON THE NET ARE FAKE!

2013 GCE/SSCE LITERATURE CANDIDATES BEWARE!...HERE ARE VERY IMPORTANT NOTES ON THE SO-CALLED "CURRENT WAEC SYLLABUSES" CIRCULATING ON THE NET (12)

do not become a misdirected and frustrated student!

We recently published a set of syllabuses here http://lagosbooksclub.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/stop-looking-for-expo-read-strategically-by-using-these-current-waecneco-syllabuses-for-private-stdiesbrowsing-or-downloading-or-contact-us-to-teach-you-how/ downloaded from certain sites on the net(which were acknowledged).But unfortunately we also joined them in calling them “current” because they said so.However, we have discovered,to our chagrin, that many of those claims are either dishonest or came out of laziness.Let us show you an example.

LITERATURE’S RECOMMENDED TEXTS :FALSE LIST BASED ON 2003-2005 BEING CIRCULATED PRESENTLY BY MANY SITES

Paper 1 (b)…Shakespeare…”Merchant of Venice”

Paper 2 (a)…African Drama…”The Lion and the Jewel” by Wole Soyinka or “The Black Hermit” by James Ngugi

Paper 2 (b)…Non-African Drama…”The Rivals” by Richard B. Sheridan or “Murder in the Cathedral” by T.S. Eliot

Paper 3 (a)…African Poetry…“We have come home” by Lenrie Peters /”Abiku” by J. P. Clark/“The Executioner’s Dream” by Kwesi Brew/”Freetown” by Syl. Cheney Coker/“Ours to plough, not to plunder” by Niyi Osundare/“No coffin, no grave” by Jared Angira.

Paper 3 (b)…Non-African Poetry…“Two look at Two” by Robert Frost/“Elegy written in a Country Churchyard” by Thomas Gray (wrongly attached to William Soutar)/“A Valediction : Forbidding Mourning” by John Donne (wrongly attached to  W. Owen)/“Is my team ploughing?” by A. E. Houseman/“Ulysses” by Alfred Tennyson/“Ode to the West Wind” by Percy Shelley

The list above, is actually meant for the years 2003-2005 as indicated.We did not know about this serious lapse until we started writing and posting  tips for use by students and tutors of Literature recently.And here is what we discovered when we saw the real current Literature syllabus.Please compare the two:

LITERATURE’S RECOMMENDED TEXTS:TRUE AND CURRENT  SYLLABUS FOR 2011 – 2015

Paper 1 (b)…Shakespeare…”The Tempest”

Paper 2 (a)…African Drama…”Women of Owu” by Femi Osofisan  or “The Blinkards ” by Kobina Sekyi:

Paper 2 (b)…Non-African Drama…”Arms and the Man” by Bernard Shaw or “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde

Paper 3 (a)…African Poetry…“Boy on a Swing” by Oswald Mtshali /“Ambassadors of Poverty” by Umeh P.O.C/“The Fence” by Lenrie Peters /“Homeless Not Hopeless” by Sola Owonibi /“Myopia” by Sly Cheney-Coker: / “Expelled”by Jared Angira  .

Paper 3 (b)…Non-African Poetry… “The Sun Rising”by John Donne / “The Soul’s Errand”by Walter Raleigh /”The Negro Speaks of Rivers” by Langston Hughes: /“Strange Meeting” by Wilfred Owen/”Upon a Honest Man’s Fortune” by John Fletcher/“Daffodils” by William Wordsworth

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE?

Consequently, we have put  a disclaimer on this page http://lagosbooksclub.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/stop-looking-for-expo-read-strategically-by-using-these-current-waecneco-syllabuses-for-private-stdiesbrowsing-or-downloading-or-contact-us-to-teach-you-how/  asking users to beware.That disclaimer covers all other subjects on the page too.

Our suggestion is that blog owners should pocket their pride and remove what will not be helpful to Nigerian students from their sites immediately with or without “automatic alacrity”! They should also go beyond just copying the current list of Literature books available on this page by searching for the latest syllabuses in all subjects from appropriate sources like this blog. By doing this does not in any way make us better or superior in providing decent services to those who might need them.

Students/Candidates who might also need details of the actual syllabuses can contact us through any of the pages listed below- after liking us on Facebook please! Otherwise the service is completely free.
