I Couldn't Believe I did MUET!

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:

a)True

B)False

C)Not stated

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?!]
