Yesterday, we had MUET or Malaysian University English Test. For those who said it’s hard, let me tell you it’s not that hard. The only thing is they will ask us high-level questions. That was what I encountered.
Three skills were being tested yesterday, namely reading, writing, and listening. Speaking was held a month earlier.
Reading: Six articles with 7 or 8 questions each. As far as I remember, the articles were about education problem in India, life of a Japanese immigrant, well, those are the two that I could think of. All the questions given were objective, but don’t think they’re like SPM. From all, the hardest was when they gave you these answers as the choices:
Sometimes, I knew the answer was not A, but was it B or C?
Writing: Section A required us to write according to the given stimulus. The one given to us was a graph about air travellers’ choice of airplane. Besides that, there was a chart telling us the travellers’ preferences of all airlines' features in choosing the airplane company. Section B meanwhile needed us to pen in an academic writing and discuss on the topic: Arranged marriage – Is it still acceptable in today’s society. Well, lucky me!
Listening: The audio was, fortunately, clear although the CD was a bit faulty. Really needed to listen [listen, not just hear], and synthesise, and write the answers. It’s not straight-forward you know?
MUET [and the exam] is now over, and presently:
I DON’T KNOW OTHER THINGS TO DO!!!
WELL, LET’S JUST WAIT FOR THE HOLIDAY, SHALL WE? *sigh*
[WHY WON’T YOU COME MUCH FASTER?!]
