UNITS Candidates should be familiar with the following units and their symbols.

( 1 ) Length 1000 millimetres (mm) = 100 centimetres (cm) = 1 metre(m). 1000 metres = 1 kilometre (km)

( 2 ) Area 10,000 square metres (m2) = 1 hectare (ha)

( 3 ) Capacity 1000 cubic centimeters (cm3) = 1 litre (l)

( 4 ) Mass 1000 milligrammes (mg) = 1 gramme (g)

1000 grammes (g) = 1 kilogramme( kg )

1000 ogrammes (kg) = 1 tonne.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

( 1) Use of Mathematical and Statistical Tables Mathematics and Statistical tables, published or approved by WAEC may be used in the examination room. Where the degree of accuracy is not specified in a question, the degree of accuracy expected will be that obtainable from the mathematical tables.

(2) Use of calculators The use of non-programmable, silent and cordless calculators is allowed. The calculators must, however not have the capability to print out nor to receive or send any information. Phones with or without calculators are not allowed.
