Shorthand Paper 2, Nov/Dec 2014  
Questions:         1 2       Main
General Comments


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.


  1. 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.
  2. Candidates should focus on drilling with use of short forms, phrases and contractions in shorthand so as to improve their speed.
  3. Candidates should also improve on their spelling and correct usage of English Language so as to avoid making grammatical errors.
