I've never heard of the capitalization of first letters thing like henry said though. And in writing essays, the thing that got me most worried was the news that they will only give you marks if the 'isi' is in the marking scheme. If it's not but it's correct, they would not give us the marks. Needless to say, all of us wrote as much as we could think of and got that A1 after all. So, to all juniors, just do it. And do it well
I can't believe why the made EST like that. Isn't is goodo to paraphrase?????? Well, I guess they are teaching us to be parrots.

Not that i have sat for it before in spm....end of this year lah...
But i did sum research on the web...and so on...

The scheme is rather strict...the graphic stuff....you have to be particular with your capital letters and small letters...Then you must be concise....Cannot copy the whole sentence bulat bulat...and you can use your own words provided they are accurate (play safe)
And be careful with your grammar....with s or no s...all the crap lar...

The essay...must put in extra relevant information....Crap all the thing you have studied in physics bio and chemistry...Use SCIENTIFIC terms.....Make sure you sentence is concise....Formal tone...Avoid verbose...Just like how our science reference books been written..

Usually is comparison....If chose A, reason why...crap about B...
Better at least one elaboration for each point...more better larr...
And take note with geographical terms....they might ask the stuff ike choosing a factory sites....
ANd of course get to know all the freaking naturall cycles like the past year acid rain.......read up the carbon cycle and nitrogen cycle....So on lar...
No word limit.....Bcareful

I m last year SPM student, i scored BC a2, and EST a1, hope this can help:

bC--do well in the part that u can prepare, like 名句精华, 句子的类型....and the grammar part...

yet, the essay, read the question carefully before answering.
I have been out of point (文不切题)for many times and scored very low mark..

est--do well in your objective part. in the fill in the information part, take the KEYWORD only, not taking the whole sentence.....

the essay-->just including all the points given, i mean ALL!!
then, elaborate a bit on each point given. insert some scientific terms and facts, if u can think some. don't write if u r not sure..

est is very simple wat...here's my advice

you should read science related articles/essays...the best is Reader's Digest, make sure you use scientific terms in your essay to get more marks and always elaborate on ALL the points given.

for the objective part, try not to get more than 5 wrongs because it is very,very simple.the answer will always be hidden somewhere in the text.

for the information transfer, you should see the space provided first.if there is little space provided, your answer must be short. spelling must also be accurate.

i hope it will help you in your exam..good luck!!

1. In est information transfer, is it tat the answer cannot contain the word ' and' or 'or'??
Eg: enough sleep and rest
The ans must separate into

2. if the ans is the smae type, oso need 2 separate??
Eg: Deficiency of vitamin E and K
should the ans is above one or oso nid2 separate into
1. Defiency of vitamin E
2. Defiency of vitamin K

3. Is it the skema jawapan has many choice?

yup, it is true. I lost mark when i write 2 answers in 1 blank.

REMEMBER! 1 blank only for 1 answer

so , always separate the ' and " ??

another question from me ( sory, 2 many question)
cannot repeat the word of the upper box?
Eg: The upper box is the word " Type of lens ",
then the ans muz be " converging'? If i write " Converging len", the ans is wrong?

If the question is " Type of Vitamin',
the ans should be "Vitamin C" or " c" only?
( quite strange when write C only...)
