Carpentry And Joinery (Paper 2) May/June 2015

Candidates' Weaknesses

The candidates were generally weak in

  • listing tools used for sharpening;
  • listing the types of wood and their uses
  • questions that involved the timber preparation and uses of tools.
  • pictorial sketches of joints
  • pictorial sketches of hammer

To overcome these weaknesses;

  • the students should be exposed to practical’s in a carpentry and joinery workshop;
  • assignment that involved pictorial sketches should be given to the students always;
  • the teachers should demonstrate practically how to use tools during lessons.
