STPM Physics 2011 – Tips and Predictions for Papers 960/1 and 960/2

by BerryBerryTeacher

in Berry Super Tips *SPM/STPM

Predictions for STPM Physics 2011 is finally out. As usual, and with all the tips, Berry Berry Easy does not recommend that students study solely using our STPM Physics 2011 examination tips, not at least until you are totally familiar with your study material through proper studying. You use only use the tips to narrow down the scope for the final studying session. Skipping chapters is very dangerous and will lose you precious marks. Remember that there should be no 100% tepat ramalan or any accurate STPM examination tips. The best bet remains in STUDYING EVERYTHING.

Typically of Paper 1 (objective paper) from most other subjects, it is not possible to do any meaningful predictions as the multiple choice questions encompasses nearly every topic to gauge your understanding of the subject in general. So try not to lose too many 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 2011 would be Work, Energy and Power, Statics, Deformation of Solids, Kinetics Theory of Gases, Magnetics Fields, Electromagnetic Waves, Geometrical Optics, Wave-Particle Duality and Nuclear Reaction. For the full list of tips including Section B’s predictions, please continue reading this post.

(Disclaimer: Students really should only use tips as last-minute narrowing of scope to study, after you have done studying everything many times and done all your past-year questions. There are not tips 100% or ramalan tepat, anybody who claim so is obviously not speaking the truth. So do only use this tips as supplementary to your studies and remember not to buy tips from websites online.)
