  1. A primary school writing desk is to be designed to the following specifications:

                height at front  –  660;
                height at back – 700;
                length             – 600;
                width               – 450.
                (All dimensions are in millimetres)

    The tap is 20 mm thick solid wood.  It has a 6 x 6 mm groove; 20 mm from the back edge to hold pens and pencils.  The desk has an open storage space at the front, 100 mm deep beneath the top.

    Question 2

    Select one of the sketches in question 1 and indicate the sketch selected by a tick (√).
    To a scale of 1:5, draw in the Third Angle Orthographic Projection, the following views of the sketch selected:

    (i)         the front elevation;
    (ii)        the end elevation.


Few candidates did  very well in this question.  They were able to:

-           project the views to each other;
-           project the views from each other;
-           indicate the sketch selected;
-           show the top piece in front elevation;
-           show the pencil/pen groove, 2 legs, shelf and end piece (in both elevations).

However, majority of them were unable to:

-           place the views correctly;
-           indicate the sketch selected;
-           indicate the joints;
-           dimension their drawings.
