SAM Biology
All of you must have thought that the biology in SAM would be harder than SPM no? But, after much research and observation, it is somehow proven that the biology in form 5 is much harder and detailed than the one in SAM. Wow, surprisingly, except for the DNA and some other parts, most of the chapters in form 5 are much detailed. For example, sexual reproduction [spermatogenesis and oogenesis], kidney, endocrine system and the HEART. Although it's an undeniable fact that some part of the SAM syllabus is more detailed, it cannot be denied that Form 5 biology is harder ._. Much harder. However, I noticed that many of the information in the form 5 reference book are wrong. What the heck are they teaching in chemistry and biology during secondary school?! Chemistry, for example, SiO2 is a semi-metal? No, it's a non-metal. Carbonic Acid ionizes completely in water to give 2 moles of proton? No, it's a weak acid, it's only able to give out 1 mole of proton. Another 1, group SEVENTEEN in the periodic table? Please, there are only 8 groups in the periodic table.

As for bio, although it isn't as obvious as chemistry, there is some false information as well in the form 5 book. Firstly, it says that bacteria and protozoans like paramecium and amoeba reproduces asexually by binary fission. However, it is NOT true, as ONLY prokaryotes like bacteria reproduce by binary fission. The reproduction of protozoans are called fission, just fission. Another false information can be detected in Chapter 5, Form 4, Cell Division. In between telophase 1 and prophase 2, NO NUCLEAR MEMBRANE is reformed. The form 5 book intelligently tells us that the nuclear membrane is reformed and broken down again. Right...
