            The following solutions were proffered to overcome these weaknesses;
            -     teachers should teach students how to draw and to scale too;
            -     students should be taught how to answer questions correctly;
            -     all the aspects of the syllabus should be touched by the teacher and students;
            -     students should improve on their written English;
            -     students should read and understand a question properly before attempting it;
            -     students should be encouraged to write letters f, g, r, l, t, h properly.
