Nota Fizik: Tips For Answering Paper 1 SPM (taken from a related blog)

Physics Tips For SPM Candidates

STRATEGY TO ANSWER PAPER 1 – Objective questions (1 hour 15 minutes)

1. Paper 1 consists of 50 objective questions. You will have to answer all the 50 questions in this Paper.

2. The time for paper 1 is 1 hour 15 minutes. The average time to answer one question is one and a half minutes.

3. Each objective questions may have 3, 4 or 5 options as follows:
A, B and C
A, B, C, and D
A, B, C, D and E

4. Most of the questions come with 4 options. Questions with 5 options are usually reserved for questions that involve calculations.

5. One way to tackle difficult questions is to eliminate incorrect options one by one until you are left with the best possible option.

6. Many of the questions are related to experiments carried out in the laboratory. Such as, made sure that you know the purpose of every step in the experiments you carried out and make sure that you know the manipulated variable, the responding variable and the fixed variable in a particular experiment.

7. The objective questions in Paper 1 involve all the topics in the physics syllabus. As such you will have to make sure that you understand every topic well enough.

8. Make sure that you know the usual meaning of symbol used in formulae in SPM Physics.

9. Read each questions diligently to make sure that you understand the requirement of that question. If information such as diagrams, graphs, or data is provided, make sure that you make use of them because they are provided with a purpose. Make sure that you know how to interpret the various types of graphs as well as make conclusions from graphs or data provided.

10. Do not take more than one and a half minutes to answer each question. If you are unable to answer a particular question, leave it first. Spending too much time on one difficult question may result in not having enough time to answer other simpler questions. Come back later to that question after you have answered all the other questions.
