It would somehow be misleading to say that the predictions are accurate as Berry Berry Easy mentioned that the questions will be well distributed and students should study everything for Chemistry Paper 2. So Berry Berry Easy predicted everything and everything came out. For the benefit of teachers and future STPM students who might want to do some analysis, Berry Berry Easy will present you with the analysis for STPM 2009 Chemistry Paper 2.

|Inorganic / Chapter 6||Group 17||Section B / 7(c)||5|
|Physical Chemistry / Chapter 13||Electrochemistry||Section B / 8 (a)||8|
|Inorganic / Chapter 7||d-block Element||Section B / 8 (b, c)||7|
|Organic / Chapter 1, 2, 3||Hydrocarbons||Section B / 9 (a, b)||15|
|Organic / Chapter 7, 13||Hydroxy compound / Amino Acids||Section B / 10 (a)||12|
|Organic / Chapter 14||Polymers||Section B / 10 (b)||3|
All the questions are well distributed. Overall the questions are clear and there are separated in many sub-questions especially essay in Section B. This is a way to guide young berries to get the exact answer rather than confuse you.
So in a way, Berry Berry Easy’s advice on studying everything is accurate. Hope students this year did not skip any topics when they studied for this paper.
