Building construction Paper 2 May/June 2015

Candidates' Weakness and Suggested Remedies

The following shortcomings were observed from the candidates’ response:

  • failure to understand the questions very well;
  • poor knowledge of the terms used in building construction to express their understanding of the subject;
  • inability to sketch correct drawing and well labeled parts as specified in the questions.
  • To overcome these weaknesses, candidates should be reviewing past questions with their teachers and also be exposed to technical terms used in building. In addition, the students should be given assignments that involve sketches and labeling.
