I'm taking MUET mid-year paper too. The difference is that i'm not taking it in school but in my university. By the way, i was informed that this existing MUET format will be changed. Which means for the coming end year paper, a completely new format will be introduced.

For those who have taken Muet speaking test, can you tell us the main topics as well as the 4 topics ? So we can prepare better for the test although the chances to get same topic is 1/8

ARGH The writing paper was stupid! I deviated from the question task like mad. I should have disagreed, because it said ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE GUARANTEES A SUCCESSFUL LIFE. Omg, I think I just dropped to a Band 4.

I'm speaking on Monday, Session 1. Apparently, some spotted topics are like 'what makes a good role model' etc. Usual spotted questions la. Just be confident.


So, anyone up for a little discussion. I know it's like one day before, but any kind of practice will be good.

What would make a good role model?
Or what is the most important trait in a leader?
Or was trait must the head of the family have?

well here are some tips i would like to share :

for listening : glance thru the questions... try to capture the key in each question. as you're listening, don't forget to simply jot down stuffs you think is important and such. it is very important to pay full attention to your listening because from my experience, they start the listening in each classes at different times, and the voices OVERLAP each other. i don't know if this happened at other schools but it happened at mine. so, DO PAY ATTENTION to the voice recording from your own class.

for writing : try to not go out of topic. in my time, many people wrote out of topic for the firearm question. most of them thought firearm means fireman and such... i don't know why they thought of that, but seriously, in my class... about 50% of them went out of topic. for the essay, i would suggest you put in more points and write longer essay. and do avoid spelling mistakes and such. it will show that you have a high command in english, and good time management.

for speaking : when they ask you to read your questions, start mapping your points in your brain instantly. then when they give you 2 minutes to think of ideas, write your points in point form. no point writing in sentences. you won't have much time for other points. and as you present your points, just construct your own sentences as your elaborate on certain point. give examples. it's very important! and MAKE EYE CONTACT. SMILE. it shows how confident you are even if you're not. don't go "emmm ... uhmmm.... ermmm...." for too long. if possible, don't do it at all. for the group discussion, make sure you look into your friend's eyes as you talk... as if you're really trying to get him understand your idea. make it convincing, even if you have to act.

for reading : well, can't help you much on this. have to depend on yourself... you gotta read the passage carefully, and thoroughly. as for me, i used to highlight the answer i found from the articles. or you could just underline it. and do make sure you've got time to recheck. it's veryyy important to recheck.

i think that's all for now~ happy muet-ing!

Want to ask : is MUET tougher than IELTS/TOEFL?

i heard that the requirement is not very high as it is supervised and invigilated by malaysian examiner, so the accents of english doent not really taken into consideration and the standard is not very high as compared to IELTS which is highly invgilated by foreign examiners..
is that true?

pls enlighten on me..:)

Form my point of view, MUET is relatively easier than TOEFL or IELTS. MUET so far is recognised by Malaysia and SIngapore ( correct me if i am wrong ) meanwhile TOEFL and IELTS re recognised world-wide...

It may fall on November instead of October.

Though you can take 3 three times, it is advisable to take only one time, which is on October/November during lower six. Therefore, you can concentrate on your study and prepare well for your STPM examination during upper six. Besides, you save your parents hard-earned money. :)

And I hate to say that, most of the time the MUET falls on the my school exam's week. It is hard to concentrate.

Is it possible to score Band 6 in MUET?

Gabrielle90
22-05-2008, 04:30 PM
yes... it is possible to score band 6... but not many people scored band 6...

Caprio
22-05-2008, 10:06 PM
Is it possible to score Band 6 in MUET?

Haha... Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.

By the way, it is close to impossible to score a Band 6 in MUET. In my batch, out of a total of 300+ students, only six managed to score Band 6!

Well, the determinant for a Band 6 is in the Reading Test, in my opinion. My friends who scored Band 6 achieved a perfect/ close to perfect score in the reading section. Next, the listening part is crucial too as it will help you to gain marks easily. Then, it comes to the writing part, time management is vital to do well in this section, try to tackle the summary beautifully. Finally, it is the speaking part, as long as you open your mouth and speak without any serious gramatical mistakes, you are bound to get a high mark. :)

All the best!:P

Quoted from my reply from another thread(STPM 2008 ).....


regarding the registration and latest MUET syllabus, u can always refer to this link:
http://www.mpm.edu.my/main.php?Content=vertsections&SubVertSectionID=21&VertSectionID=18&CurLocation=18&IID=&Page=1



quoted from MPM website....

Additional info:
under new format of MUET, besides the change of % weightage for reading and writing compenents, other changes include:

-the Writing part requires candidates to write 2 continuos essays
(old format: 1 summary, 1 essay)
-the listening part are subjective questions, which requires candidates to write down important key words from the recordings, which is kinda same as listening part of IELTS test
(old format:A,B,C,D objective questions)

*CHANGES ARE SUBJECTED TO THE MPM'S DECISION FROM TIME TO TIME

hope that helps:)

ToEFL would be like this:
Reading
The reading section consists of 3?5 long passages and questions about the passages. The passages are on academic topics; they are the kind of material that might be found in an undergraduate university textbook. Students answer questions about main ideas, details, inferences, sentence restatements, sentence insertion, vocabulary, function and overall ideas. New types of questions in the iBT require paraphrasing, filling out tables, or completing summaries. Generally prior knowledge of the subject under discussion is not necessary to come to the correct answer, though a priori knowledge may help.
Listening It consists of six long passages and questions about the passages. The passages consist of two student conversations and four academic lectures or discussions. The questions ask the students to determine main ideas, details, function, stance, inferences, and overall organization.
Speaking
It consists of six tasks, two independent tasks and four integrated tasks. In the two independent tasks, students must answer opinion questions about some aspect of academic life. In two integrated reading, listening, and speaking tasks, students must read a passage, listen to a passage, and speak about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In two integrated listening and speaking tasks, students must listen to long passages and then summarize and offer opinions on the information in the passages. Test takers are expected to convey information, explain ideas, and defend opinions clearly, coherently, and accurately.
Writing
The Writing Section consists of two tasks, one integrated task and one independent task. In the integrated task, students must read an academic passage, listen to an academic passage, and write about how the ideas in the two passages are related. In the independent task, students must write a personal essay.

is the new format of MUET would be harder than or the same standard than the TOEFL exam????

Yes,I will do that....haha..but he is just different,i mean i can see him in the school compound,but he is just too lazy to enter the class...haha~And that's what happened when we were in form5(He used to teach us EST in form5),he really seldom entered the class~Though that time when we were in form5,we did not like our English teacher(another teacher) so much because of being "too hardworking" but now if i can choose,i would want her back^^haha~

Dun scared me la wei.. I agreed that time.. but that is because my school spotted the question almost similar to this.. For my trial, the essay question was almost similar except that academic excellence is changed to tertiary education.. I believe the points from there could be used right? swt..

btw, I think we would know our result before 24th July.. cause that is the closing date for those who want to resit for MUET.

Good news for lower sixer this year- New MUET specifications: For the listening component, the new specifications will see an increase in texts and questions. There is also more variety in question type. For the reading component, cloze passage has been removed. For the writing component, summary writing has also been taken out.

The summary question has always been regarded as one of the tougher components in MUET. Even though I am appalled at the removal of the Summary question, I have to agree that it looks more like a reading rather than a writing question, as candidates spend a lot of time reading the text. However, I still think that the skill of summarizing is an important skill in life.
However, due to limited resources, I am not able to confirm this. If fellow recomers are familiar with the latest format, feel free to comment to share it with us.
:)


can anyone tell me the ways to get at least band 5 in MUET ?

I can provide this information on the scoring description of each Band score in MUET.

Band 6 ? Very good user (Aggregated Score: 260 ? 300)
Very good command of the language. Highly expressive, fluent, accurate and appropriate language: hardly any inaccuracies. Very good understanding of language and contexts. Functions extremely well in the language.

Band 5 ? Good user (Aggregated Score: 220 ? 259)
Good command of the language. Expressive, fluent, accurate and appropriate language but with minor inaccuracies. Good understanding of language and contexts. Functions well in the language.

Band 4 ? Competent user (Aggregated Score: 180 ? 219)
Satisfactory command of the language. Satisfactory expressive and fluent, appropriate language but with occasional inaccuracies. Satisfactory understanding of language and contexts. Functions satisfactorily in the language.

Band 3 ? Modest user (Aggregated Score: 140 ? 179)
Modest command of the language. Modestly expressive and fluent, appropriate language but with noticeable inaccuracies. Modest understanding of language and contexts. Able to function modestly in the language.

Band 2 ? Limited user (Aggregated Score: 100 ? 139)
Limited command of the language. Lacks expressiveness, fluency and appropriacy: inaccurate use of the language resulting in breakdown in communication. Limited understanding of language and contexts. Limited ability to function in the language.

Band 1 ? Extremely limited user (Below 100)
Poor command of the language. Unable to use language to express ideas: inaccurate use of the language resulting in frequent breakdowns in communication. Little or poor understanding of language and contexts. Hardly able to function in the language.

Huh? Why do you say so? I thought the new format is way harder?

First, listening.. I could tell you part 3 was the worst of all..

2nd, reading.. how are you going to discern whether its true, false or not stated.. (I believe got some questions on that would be tested)

3rd, writing.. how in the world is the format for the first question? Is it something like PA, where it follows a fixed step, like in one paragraph, you must write the trend, then put in the data, then calculate the difference and the percentage? Or otherwise?

With due modesty i got a band 6 the first time i took the test back in may 2007. Score : 260 a bit lucky i guess. But seriously i regret not taking the 2nd time last year end, because i think i would have broken the school record of 272 considering the absurdly high scores my schoolmates got.
NO OFFENSE though to those that took the MUET test in november. :)

But then MUET is only recognised in Malaysia. What is the fuss about scoring band 6 anyway. When we go out and work, our employee won't ask what's your band in MUET. It's more like just fulifliing the requirement of the government.Don't really bother to retake MUET if you are in private university cause you just need minimum requirement for bands in MUET to graduate. Don't waste your money to take MUET a few times unless you got too much money to spend. In that case donate some.:)):))
Just my humble opinion. Hope i don't offend anyone.

If that was the case we could all just rest our laurels and stop studying for stpm since we are merely trying to fulfill the government's requirements.

Well personally i take a sense of pride out of what i do, which is exactly why i really want to beat my school record. I am sure the other high achievers would agree with me on that.

In 2007, 6 or 7 form 6 science students who scored 5 As attended the interview for National University of Singapore's Medical Course.

Only one of them, kpchen from ReCom, who scored a Band 6 got it... The others only get a band 5.

So , extreme , MUET is not only recognised in Malaysia :) It's recognised in Singapore too , which boast 1 top 20 university in the world and 2 top 50 universities in the world :)

To those who got Band 5 but wishing for Band 6 , i recommend you to resit it ... 60 ringgit is nothing compare to a life-time of guilt blaming yourself about why don't you sit for it again .. :)

hmm i see. Still got some potential in MUET that i don't know. I do respect people who get band six in MUET. Getting a band six in MUET is no simple task. Those with band six really do have the potential and the ability as you said.People who get band six does speak high level english, maybe thats why he got the offer. I do not discriminate but people who get band six are really established speaker of the language no doubt about it.

No STPM is actually the basic for your university year. It's quite different from just fulfilling the government requirement. I can be quite sure that people who really score in STPM really work for it unlike in SPM where we can actually relax (more to those smart students).STPM is also recognised worldwide and become a nice ticket to apply into prestigious university.They who score STPM can somewhat relax in their university years because they can really cope with the stress of doing alot of thing in such a short time.


I just got band 5 in my MUET though.lolz

You will see the application forms released by our ministry of higher education in the newspapers around march / april next year. Do take note that you will have different applying procedures to that of STPM students.

The short essay is actually the report writting.

If not mistaken t, the new format of this coming MUET in NOV slightly resemble the IELTS which includes report and continous writting in essay part.

advice on a good report writting.

n general, a good report is one that you don't need to reread, it is clear and the information that it contains is easy to find. The structure is fairly rigid, usually divided into sections, probably with subheadings, each performing a very specific task. For example a scientific report will be a structured account of an investigation or experiment that you have carried out, whereas a business report may require you to imagine that you are making recommendations to your boss or colleagues for a particular course of action. You need to strive for relevance and conciseness, and your report should proceed in a logical and ordered way.

So, is it something like pengajian bahagian e where you just follow the trend, starting from comparing the "jumlah" by years, and then, comparing the inner part?
