candidates weakness/remedies

Some of the weaknesses observed in the candidates’ scripts were
            i.          wrong placement of shorthand outlines which made it hard
                        For them to transcribe what they jotted down;
            ii.         poor spelling and wrong use of words;
            iii.        writing of the dictated passages in longhand instead of shorthand.


  • Theory of shorthand should be taught and the candidates should be made to learn this, so as to improve on the placement of shorthand outlines.
  • Candidates should focus on drilling with use of short forms, phrases and contractions in shorthand so as to improve their speed.
  • Candidates should also improve on their spelling and correct usage of English Language so as to avoid making grammatical errors.
