Similar to the corresponding Chemistry Paper 2, Berry Berry Easy also mentioned that nearly every chapter will appear in STPM 2009 Biology Paper 1. As expected, there is no change of format this year and nearly every chapter came out. Berry Berry Easy cannot and will not claim credit for such an easy prediction but will instead show the analysis for future STPM 2010 students. There are two tables below for your analysis. So for future STPM students, remember to also check out the frequency table for each chapters. Might help you to predict which will be important in the coming year. So here goes the analysis for STPM 2009 Biology Paper :
