Electrical Engineering Form Four Past Papers
This examination format replaces the one issued in 2001. The novel feature in this new format is the inclusion of multiple choice and short answer question in addition to structure questions. The main reason for the change is to encourage more self expression from the candidates.
2.0 GENERAL OBJECTIVE
The examination will test candidate’s ability to:
2.1 solve problems related to electrical science
2.2 explain types of instruments and machines related to this science.
3.0 SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
The examination will test candidates’ ability to;
3.1 explain the nature of electricity
3.2 identify and use laws for different operations and behaviours
3.3 define different terminologies used in this field.
3.4 solve simple problems involving electric circuits
3.5 calculate electric machine parameters
3.6 describe different operations and application of electrical machines
3.7 describe construction of different instruments and machine
3.8 calculate the changed circuit parameters due to change in temperature.
4.0 EXAMINATION RUBRIC
There will be one paper consisting of sections A, B and C with a total of sixteen (16) questions. Candidates will be required to answer only fourteen (14) questions. Candidates are required to answer all questions in sections A and B and any three (3) questions from section C. Time allocated for this paper is three (3) hours. Section A will comprise one (1) question of ten (10) multiple choice items each carrying one (1) mark, (total 10 marks). Section B will consist ten (10) short answer questions, each question carrying three (3) marks, (total 30 marks). Section C will comprise five (5) structure questions. Each question will carry twenty (20) marks. Candidates are required to attempt three (3) questions only. (Total 60 marks).
