sorry to hear the situation as explained by balderdash and wawa. How about the experience of others?

This kind of situation merits serious concern.

Jeszz87,

1. To improve your writing skills, you don't really have to rely altogether on composition books. Those are just examples on how essays can be written and how points can be elaborated and put into paragraphs. Well, in my opinion, you have to read more articles, newspapers, magazines or books in English, so that you get used to how words are strung into phrases and then sentences. You will get used to the flow of English sentences after a while.

2. Not necessarily different methods for different stages. Just choose the one which works best for you and that you are most comfortable with. Past year questions? Yeah, practise with them if you can find any. The style for examination questions is almost the same every year.

4. Idioms. You lose nothing knowing more right? You can quote some in your essays when necessary and impress the examiner.

yeah, i agree with that, there's actually no need to buys all those composition books just for the sake of improving your english, although you may improve, the money's not worth it...you may just as well go buy items which i have stated in my earlier post here...anyway..good luck to you who are takin the exam later on

From what i know that MUET exam is held twice a year....once in April and another once in october....(correct me if i'm wrong)... I have a question here: shall i sign up to be a private candidate for MUET for this coming October session?? My english is not that fantastic(perhaps i can say it's quite poor) but i would like to sign up for it earlier....the reasons i want to sign up early is:
1. Can gain experience in that exam
2. If i'm not lucky enough, i got a lousy topic for the speaking and ended up with a poor grade then i will still have a second chance & third chance when i am in upper 6.
3. If i'm lucky enough, i got a good grade then i will have one subject less to worry in upper 6.... can truly concentrate on other subjects....you know one subject less means you will have a lighter burden...
Anyone...can give me some idea??

I understand that there are altogether 4 candidates in 1 group. Wut if the other 2 or 3 do not turn up, will the oral test still go on?

yen_05 : Why not? I took MUET while in lower 6 as well. As you said, you can gain experience. Some of my friends even took it 3 times. So, it's up to you.

shrenka : The groups will only be allocate on the day itself. So if some candidates didn't turn up, the person in the quarantine room will rearrange your group. Sometimes there are groups with 3 people only. So don't worry about it.

What did you think of this year's May MUET? Overall for me it's quite okay, with the exception of the Essay question, which I find to be terribly vague. Something along the lines of "An educated person is more mature". I seriously don't know what 'isi' to write.

You really should be glad that topics so open came out. I was wishing for that kind of topics (with that level of freedom), but too bad it wasn't quite so.
