Shorthand Paper 2, Nov/Dec 2012  
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 spelling and wrong use of  words.
  3. Writing of the dictated passages in longhand instead of shorthand.

i.          Theory of shorthand should be taught and leant by the candidates so as to improve  on the placement of shorthand outlines.
ii.         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.
