    Question 1

    Make two preliminary freehand pictorial sketches each for a different design of the
    writing desk


Few candidates were able to draw two different sketches of the writing desk.

However, many candidates drew:

-           without the pencil/pen groove;
-           without inclination of the top piece.

Candidates’ drawing was to show:

-           inclination of the top piece;
-           the pencil/pen groove.
