This course is designed to provide trainees with a sound knowledge of mathematical concepts as aids in the conceptualization, interpretation, and application of the technical soft wares and hard wares as well as to enhance their mathematical problems – solving ability in their various trades. It is also to form a basis for post secondary technical education.
All candidates are expected to answer questions from General Mathematics while those in Secretarial Studies and Book-Keeping are in addition to answer questions from Commercial Mathematics. Examination Scheme:
The examination consists of Two Papers:
002-1 – Paper I (1½ Hrs)
002-2 – Paper II (2½ Hrs)
The total mark for both papers is 150.
- Paper I: is made up of 50 multiple-choice items for 50 marks. All candidates are expected to attempt this paper.
- Paper II: Consists of three sessions namely A, B and C.
Section A consists of five questions from General Mathematics. All candidates are expected to attempt all questions. This section carries 40 marks.
Section B consists of six questions. All candidates are to attempt any four of the six questions except Secretarial and Business candidates who are to attempt only two questions. Each question carries 15 Marks.
Section C consists of four questions from Commercial Mathematics for Secretarial and Business candidates only. Candidates are expected to attempt any two out of the four questions. Each question carries 15 marks.
Candidates should be familiar with units-length, area, cubic capacity, mass – and their abbreviations. Any currency unit used will be defined.
Candidates are allowed to use the recommended mathematical statistical tables in the examination hall for the papers.
It is strongly recommended that schools/candidates obtain copies of these tables for use through the course.
Candidates should bring rules and complete mathematical instrument set for all papers.
Borrowing of instruments from other candidates in the examination hall will not be allowed.
The use of noiseless, cordless and non-programmable calculators is allowed.
If required, the following will be provided for any paper.
(i) Plain drawing sheets for construction work.
(ii) Graph paper ruled in 2mm squares
