Changes for SPM Chemistry 2021 | New KSSM Form 4 Form 5

Students who are taking SPM in 2021 should be noted that the Ministry of Education introduced a new format for the coordination of new subjects under the Secondary School Standard Curriculum. Starting in 2020, Form Four students will use the Science, Technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subject packages as well as the new Literature and Humanities Package to replace the abolished science and literature steam. So, what had been changed in Chemistry subject?

Form 4

In new syllabus, the Electrochemistry chapter was removed and transferred to Form 5 syllabus. Acids & Bases and Salts were combined into a single chapter. In addition, the subtopic Synthetic Polymer had been removed fully and added into Form 5 Polymer chapter.

Form 5

For Form 5 syllabus, the rate reaction was replaced by redox equilibrium. This redox equilibrium included the standard electrode potential where the students never learnt it in the old chemistry syllabus. Other than that, a new chapter Polymer was added. This chapter will be a new knowledge for SPM students.
