Analysis of the STPM Chemistry Questions (2001-2008)

by BerryBerryTeacher

in Berry Super Tips *SPM/STPM

In addition to the tips that was posted on “STPM Chemistry 2009 – Tips and Predictions for Papers 962/1 and 962/2” under Berry Super Tips, Berry Berry Easy hereby presents you with the complete breakdown of STPM Chemistry questions for the past 8 years between 2001 and 2008. Efforts have been made give more detail on the chapter breakdown.

So please use it as a guide to assess the importance of each topic. But always remember, the best study method is still understanding everything. Remember to spread the word around, so that all of you can group up to think of a good strategy to tackle the exams. (Exam smartness and strategy is as important as studying hard.)
