Shorthand Paper 2, Nov/Dec 2011  
Questions:         1 2       Main
General Comments


Some of the weaknesses observed in the candidates scripts were:

  1. Wrong placement of shorthand outlines which made it hard for them to transcribe what they jotted down.
  2. Poor spellings and wrong use of words
  3. Writing of dictated passages in longhand instead of shorthand.


  1. Theory of shorthand should be taught and learnt by the candidates so as to improve on the placement of Shorthand outlines.
  2. Candidates should focus on drilling, with the use of short forms, phrases and contractions in shorthand so as to improve their speed.
  3. Candidates should also improve on their spelling and usage of English language so as to avoid many grammatical errors.
