The following weaknesses were observed from candidates' work:

  • Inability to draw to scale.
  • Failure to dimension and label key building elements drawn in section.
  • Poor knowledge and skills of geometric construction.

  To overcome these weaknesses, candidates should be taught on:

  • various scales used in building construction;
  • the proper methods of dimensioning building drawings;
  • construction of lines, angles, circle, arcs, polygon etc.

In addition, candidates should be given ample building drawing assignments in order to enhance their flexibility in drawing.
