O-Level Biology: Mastering Structured Questions

Sharon Wong


“O-Level Biology Mastering Structured Questions” is written in accordance to the latest GCE O-Level Biology syllabus by the Ministry of Education, Singapore. The objective of this book is to help students do well in Section A (Structured question) of Paper 2, which many students are struggling with. The section accounts for almost 60% of the marks for Paper 2, therefore it is important for students to be able to do well for this section. Many students, despite studying hard for this subject, are still unable to score for this section. The main reasons are: lack of keywords, lack of in-depth answers and unable to ‘customise’ their answers to what the question wants. This book will address these issues. O-Level Biology is a content intensive subject and constant review of the content will reinforce memory and understanding of the concepts. Students can use this book as a supplementary guide to their school notes to aid in revision. Keywords are highlighted so that students are familiar with the keywords that are required to obtain marks. In addition, students will understand the depth of answers that are required for the O-level exam. Most students are not detailed enough in answering questions. Thus it is hoped that by studying this guide, students will understand the depth of answer that is needed and acquire the answering strategies to help them score for this subject.
