STPM Physics 2010 – Tips and Predictions for Papers 960/1 and 960/2

by BerryBerryTeacher

in Berry Super Tips *SPM/STPM

Similar to the recently published SPM Physics tips from Berry Berry Easy, this is also the first time we are publishing STPM Physics tips for 2010. You have probably read this many times but the Berry Berry Teacher do not wish that students only study solely on the tips, not at least until you are totally familiar with your study material through proper studying. STUDY EVERYTHING is the easiest way to score A.

Like most Paper 1 from other subjects, it is not possible to do any prediction as the multiple choice questions cover nearly every topic to gauge your understanding of the subject in general. So try not to lose easy marks in Paper 1. However, for Paper 2 Section A is different. Out of 8 questions (based on past year format), Berry Berry Easy has identified 10 hot topics (out of a total of 22 topics) as denoted by the * symbols for you to pay extra attention to. The hot topics for 2010 would be Work, Energy and Power, Gravitation, Deformation of Solids, Kinetics Theory of Gases, Magnetics Fields, Electromagnetic Waves, Geometrical Optics, Wave-Particle Duality, Laser and Nuclear Reaction. For the full list of tips including Section B’s predictions, please continue reading this post.

(Unfortunately we do not yet offer notes on physics but we’re working hard to bring you concise notes or what we call essence (essential notes only) like what we have for Chemistry and Biology.)
