Predicted Experiments (Tips) for SPM Biology 2011 Paper 3 from Berry Berry Easy is finally. This is the first year we are predicting the experiment topics in Paper 3. The challenge in paper 3 are usually two-fold as in there is a large scope of experiments to be tested and also the techniques required. So this post is specially for all Berry Readers as you’ll find extra tips and predictions for SPM 2011 Biology Paper 3. Before heading on to the examination tips and predictions, you may also visit the answering techniques for paper 3 at http://berryberryeasy.com/2010/11/spm-2010-biology-paper-3-answering-techniques/

Whenever possible, do study all the experiments and do all the necessary preparation. Tips are only useful if you have at least studied everything once. Scores in examinations are proportional to hard work, so try to work as hard as you can. Your final chance to study properly before SPM 2011. Remember to share this post with all your friends who are struggling with SPM Biology 2011 paper 3.
