Question 2

Candidates were required to

Question 2(a),(i)List six classes of tools and equipment used for clothing construction based on their functions.

(ii) Give two examples of each of the classes listed in 2a (i) above

(2b) Mention four types of needles and state the function of each

Candidates were able to answer this question correctly for part 2(a) was widely known. Most candidates were able to list classes of tools and equipment. However, some candidates included other classes of tools and equipment not used in clothing construction e.g. marking equipment, they listed pencils instead of dress makers chalk.

In 2b, types of needle and their functions did not attract good scores because the candidates mixed them up.
