Examples of Responses to Questions in the 2011 Examinations
In keeping with our drive here at CXC to enhance the support provided to candidates who are preparing to write our examinations, we are displaying on our website exemplars of candidates’ responses to examination questions. These are authentic, unedited responses. They are presented in the candidates’ own handwriting, accompanied by comments from the Examination Committee that indicate the Committee’s judgement of the quality of the responses and the justification for arriving at that judgement.
This is a pilot effort, covering only selected subjects. We at CXC welcome your feedback on how useful you find this information to be and, in particular, how we can improve on the provision of such information. Your comments will contribute to the future expansion and refinement of this material.

The Technical Drawing syllabus focuses on the development of competencies in geometric construction, descriptive geometry, engineering designs and graphics, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing and construction drafting. These are geared toward the development of students’ spatial visualisation, technical communication, interdisciplinary and employability skills. These skills are useful for careers in drafting, architecture, surveying, civil engineering, interior designing, design engineering and in the general construction and manufacturing industries. In addition, the programme of studies in the syllabus caters for those students who will seek entry level employment in related fields.
