No. 2- Recall and differentiation form
No. 3 – Recall and reasoning form
No 4 – Experiment that ever carried out by student before
No 5 – Experiment that be connected by science concept
No 6 - Comparison and calculation form
The question no 7. - higher level question and vary rigid in marking scheme . At glance the question seem quite easy, but FAO is implemented.
The question no. 8 - experimental question is created based on science concept that has been learned by the student before.
L Your answer must be accurate and as brief as possible

D Candidates always guess the answer whereas FAO is implemented
D In case of the characteristic questions , candidates always answer based on their own knowledge.
