How to Score A(s) in SPM Biology


To score A in SPM Biology, you will be needing a high memory capacity and passion

M – Memory level: You must memorise the structures and mechanisms, from a simple
cell structure to the most complicated anatomy structure. Besides that, the heart
structure and blood circulation are important topic that you must memorise too! Try to
visualize the process (or you can try to find some interesting video online).This will help
you in paper 2 (essay) which requires you to explain the processes and methods.

M – Maintained level: You must maintain your memory level at the highest level by
writing out important data and keywords repeatedly (as many time as possible). The
best method would be to get more sample essays and start to memorise it everyday. Try
to get few friends to prepare important notes. It will save a lot of time in the preparation
of Biology notes and free up more time for your revision.

M – Mastery level: You must find important keywords. Start practicing from keywords for the
essays (P2). Write essays regularly. If possible, an essay per day. You will definitely score an A in
SPM Biology. Besides that, you must also master the food testing experiment, respiration
mechanisms, blood circulation and digestion.
