Tips for STPM Biology 2011 examination is finally out. Berry Readers will enjoy free topik ramalan (not soalan bocor) for STPM Biology Form 6. For those who have accessed our Berry Berry Easy’s STPM Chemistry 2011 tips published few days ago, you should already know that the exams tips provided here should NOT be the only study plan but instead be used to zoom in on the predicted important topics based on trends. We only recommend that you look at the tips only and only if you have completed a full round of studying for the complete STPM Form 6 Biology syllabus.

Please keep it in mind that the tips for STPM Biology 2011 published here cannot be interpreted as soalan bocor 100% tepat. As we have reminded many times, there are no possibilities of soalan bocor ever existing. Do not be fooled by websites selling 100% guaranteed STPM tips as you can get it 100% free from this site.

Do also take note of the * and ** symbols which signify upward trends in STPM exams and berry hot topics for STPM 2011, repectively. So all chapters appearing below are important, but those with the * and ** symbols are exceptionally important. So for Paper 2 (where the tips is more crucial, but still not as crucial as in chemistry), you definitely should not skip the chapters of Homeostasis, Mutation and Ecosystem. The full tips list can be found below. (Berry Notes on some of those chapters can be obtained from Berry Berry Easy, so please bookmark the notes section if you want to score well)

Prediction for STPM Biology 2011 Paper 964/2

There are two sections (Section A and B) and 60% of the Biology paper. In section A, students need to answer all questions. In section B, students need to answer any four questions. Answers may be written in either English or Bahasa Malaysia. In 964/2 (Paper 2), you actually can predict the Berry Important Topics (BIT)! Do a mock self-test by writing it (essay) out on a test pad. Read it for a few times and before you enter the examination hall. Biology started to follow (2006) the Chemistry trend which there is variety chapter in one question. It is a good way to eliminate students from spotting questions but bad for the last minute study.
