Cosmestology Paper 3, May/June 2015

Question 3 / Observation

In this question, candidates were required to (a) identify the types of nail disorders illustrated above,

(b) part of the question was on the procedure for (i) fixing the false nails,(ii) how to remove the false nail. Majority of the candidates answered these correctly.

Question 3(c) requested that candidates should (i) list each tool   used to work on the parts labeled I, II and III, (ii) outline the procedure for applying nail varnish on the part labeled II.

The (d) part was on precautions that should be observed during pedicure. The candidates were unable to provide accurate answers to this question; it was obvious they lacked the knowledge about manicure and pedicure; hence the candidates performed poorly.
