WAEC and NECO assess two types of story writing:

  1. A story intended to exemplify a specific proverb, for instance: Craft a story illustrating the saying, “As one makes one’s bed, so one must lie on it” (WASSCE June 2006).

 

  1. A story that must conclude with a specific expression, for example: Narrate a story that ends with the advice, “Cut your coat according to your cloth” (WASSCE June 1988).

 

Fundamental Features:

  1. A story necessitates a heading, presented in capital letters, distinct from the provided expression in the question.
  2. An introductory paragraph initiates the narrative.
  3. The story body should encompass a minimum of three well-developed paragraphs, illustrating the complications and escalating intensity of events.
  4. The concluding paragraph serves as the resolution, addressing all raised issues.
