The paper format for STPM examinations is often disregarded when a student is doing revision. Berry Berry Easy wishes to point out the examination format for STPM (especially STPM 2011) so that students can better prepare for the exams. By understanding the format, students are able to properly do some budgeting for time usage in the actual examination. Time usage in the examination hall is often the key between scoring an A or a B, fail or pass. Try to understand the format and do your own time budgeting accordingly.
