Some are asking me for MUET tips, although i was previously struggling to adapt with the new format ๐Ÿ˜ญ but Alhamdulillah He knows best ๐Ÿค so here are some strategies that have helped me to achieve band 5 for my course. Sorry tau kalau tak membantu sangat ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ‘‚: Go through the questions first, circle the keywords prior. Listen for the KEY words and make sure DENGAR SAMPAI HABIS. Bcs usually the answer is either at the beginning or the end of the sentence. If tak sempat dgr JANGAN KALUT. Tanda your best assumption and move on.

๐Ÿ‘‚: have to practice your listening test at least 3 tests. You will notice the flow of the questions & their patterns; easy to complicated. Part 3-5 usually guna SYNONYMS of the key words to trick you. So choose the most logical answer kalau korang tak dapat catch the meaning.

๐Ÿ‘‚: contoh tricky phrases - 1. soalan tanya unique place, tapi audio sebut special/different. 2. This place is particulary known for = stand out . So listen attentively and try to understand what the speakers are conversing about

๐Ÿ“–: sehari sebelum test korang set masa satu soalan berapa minit yg korang ada. This will help you a lot utk yang selalu ada masalah tak sempat jawab habis. Save 5-7 mins waktu terakhir utk recheck. If one question is too confusing for you, circle the number of the qs then-

๐Ÿ“–: tanda ur best answer first. If ada masa lebih lepas jawab semua, baru go through balik soalan2 tricky yg korang circle tu

๐Ÿ“–: SKIM soalan utk tahu general idea of the text. Contoh; soalan 1-7 semua sebut robot, so ohh text ni pasal robot. Then always baca soalan dulu before baca reading text. Baca soalan 1 โžก๏ธ baca text & jawab. Then, Baca soalan 2 โžก๏ธ sambung baca text & jawab. Repeat.

๐Ÿ“–: practice makes perfect- utk yg muet sesi 1/2 2022, time ni lah the best time kalau korang nak baca news, novels, articles, blog etc. Sebab reading text muet semua adaptation from those je. Utk sesi 3 2021, no worries! Just continue ur practice and make sure jawab semua qs ๐Ÿฅฐ

๐Ÿ“–: similarly to listening, be cautious of the synonyms used. Kalau tak jumpa keyword soalan dalam reading text, try baca balik the paragraph.

๐Ÿ‘„: a day before the test practice terus intro and ending individual presentation korang. Sebab nanti korang akan kalut tulis points during the test, so bila nak present some ppl tergagap nk start mcm mana.

๐Ÿ‘„: contoh intro indv. presentation โ€œA very good morning I bid to the examiners and friends. The situation highlights that ___(baca balik soalan)____. In my opinion, ___(baca point yg korang dapat)___ is the best way to _____โ€

๐Ÿ‘„: no worries! Be confident even korang rasa mcm the heck am i talking ๐Ÿ˜ญ the tips is ALWAYS FINISH YOUR SENTENCE. Jgn biar tergantung. Pause and take a deep breath kalau korang dah start โ€œerrโ€ โ€œhmmโ€ and continue balik. Its always better to pause than keep on talking but-

๐Ÿ‘„: point merata and noktah pun tak tahu kat mana. Next, use linkers. First, secondly, besides, apart from that etc.

๐Ÿ‘„: DONโ€™T FORGET TO CONCLUDE even examiner dah bunyikan loceng. If korang still tgh explain point ketiga waktu tu, finish ur final sentence and terus cakap โ€œIn conclusion, ___โ€ . Doesnโ€™t matter if conclusion tak gempak, yg penting conclude!

๐Ÿ‘„: the simplest way kalau korang tak sempat fikir is just repeat balik je intro korang. โ€œin conclusion, it is proven that improving education is the best way to ____โ€

๐Ÿ‘„: non verbal gestures are also important. This will tolong sedikit sebanyak ur marks especially for those yg rasa korang tak pandai elaborate, etc. So mantain eye contact with examiners & other candidates. Kalau nervous, tengok dahi dorang. Donโ€™t make it obvious that-

๐Ÿ‘„: you are looking down. Jangan tunduk baca notes yg korang tulis tu. Selang seli dengan tengok muka dorang. Otherwise nampak membaca instead of speaking.

๐Ÿ‘„: Lastly, keep it moderate. Dont talk too fast or too slow. If you have been reading/watching news, you may mention one issue/recent news yg related with your point.

๐Ÿ‘„: group discussion; if you feel you messed up your individual presentation, grab the chance to start/end the grp discussion. But if ur already perform well for the first task, be considerate & let others to start the discussion to help him/her w their marks.

๐Ÿ‘„: unless everyone is totally senyap for 5 seconds, then korang start je. I heard that there are marks for the ones yg starting / ending the discussion. But choose one je. Jangan la tamak dua2 nak sapu kan ๐Ÿ˜ญ

๐Ÿ‘„: Then, donโ€™t dominate! Jangan cakap lama sgt sampai orang lain takleh cakap. Kalau nampak ada candidate yg messed up, korang give the chance to him/her to talk too. Ask them about their opinions. Are they agreeing/disagreeing with your points etc.

๐Ÿ‘„: LISTEN TO OTHERS. Itโ€™s a grp discussion so penting korang dengar waktu org bercakap juga. Donโ€™t make it obvious yg korang tgh masih lagi fikir points korang waktu candidate lain tengah bercakap. Acah2 angguk ke apa to show that u are participating ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐Ÿ‘„: AND for those yg aiming for band 4.5 and above, try to use wider vocabularies, phrases and avoid grammatical errors while speaking. For example; kalau korang dah guna โ€œi agree with candidate A because___ โ€œ, so then next point dont use i agree dah-

๐Ÿ‘„: you might say โ€œI have no objection that ____โ€ โ€œI am convinced that___โ€ โ€œI think candidate B is right about___โ€ etc.

๐Ÿ‘„: conclusion for grp discussion; yg berminat nak tutup grp discussion, just conclude mcm biasa kalau semua setuju dgn satu point yg sama. Kalau ada yg points berlainan or tak sempat habis discussion, you may conclude by saying -

๐Ÿ‘„: โ€œI guess it is time to bring our discussion to a close. In conclusion, SOME OF US agree that ____ WHILE THE OTHERS think that____. Thank youโ€ If takde orang nak conclude, korang conclude je tau if you are aiming for band 4.5 and above.

malam ni saya sambung writing tips eh, nak bagi kucen makan jap

sorry lambat, i will continue now. Btw yg tanya kat reply/DM jap eh i reply satu2 lepas habis thread

๐Ÿ“: same as reading, a day before the test set your personal time to answer both of the tasks. Sebab usually tak sempat siap ๐Ÿ˜ญ Tak pun paragraph last mesti tulisan dah macam doctor. So jangan cross ur time limit!

๐Ÿ“: adjust ikut ur time preferences tau. Certain people laju dekat task B. For me i allocate only 20 mins for task A & 55 mins for task B sebab i am more confident n usually ada idea when replying to email & letters, meanwhile i often stuck at extended writing.

๐Ÿ“: Task A; FORMAT! if itโ€™s a letter use the correct format for letter. Read the qs carefully. Kalau surat tu from Sajat so reply to Sajat! Donโ€™t name another person in ur writing! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

๐Ÿ“: Task A; Reply to all the questions asked in the email/letter. If you are aiming for band 4.5 and above, respond to the writer for everything he said. for example; if Dollah cakap โ€œHi Badrul, i did not attend the event because i broke my leg. How was the event?โ€-

๐Ÿ“: band 4.5 & above; respond pasal dia sakit dulu baru jawab soalan dia. For example, โ€œHi Dollah, sorry to hear about your injury. Please get well soon. (Then baru masuk part wajib which is jawab semua soalan dalam email/letter). The event was a success yada yada

๐Ÿ“: end the letter/email appropriately. Take care! Write soon! See you soon! Okay, now move on to Task B. Ada three ways to approach the question in the new Muet format. You may use discursive, argumentative or prob-solution essay

๐Ÿ“: Read the question TWICE! Decide the best way to write the essay. Nak guna argumentative ke prob-sol ke. Most of the times soalan tu actually masuk je kalau korang nak guna essay types yg mana2 sebab it depends on ur points.

๐Ÿ“: So guna the one yg korang confident and tahu format dia. For example argumentative kena byk guna convincing phrases, evidences, opinions etc because you are basically arguing.

๐Ÿ“: if youโ€™re aiming for band 4.5 and above; GIVE BOTH POSITIVE & NEGATIVE POINTS bcs it shows ur maturity in writing. Contoh; if u wanna write an argumentative essay, choose the neutral side.

๐Ÿ“: Talk about both, the pros and cons. Except for prob-solution essay sebab yg tu xde positive n negative points right. Just state the prob, elaborate n give solutions with examples.

๐Ÿ“: NEVER EVER LEAVE UR PAPER WITHOUT THE CONCLUSION. Even masa dah tamat, tulis jugak conclusion even one sentence pun walaupun tangan terketar2! If u dah blank waktu tu, simply restate ur thesis statement. If still ada masa, u rephrase sikit cantik2.

So i think thatโ€™s all guys. LASTLY, just do your best and let it to Him to handle the rest! ๐Ÿค I hope this thread is comprehensive enough and could be helpful for you โœจ Iโ€™m sorry kalau ada silap bahasa mana2 dalam thread ni ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Thanks for those who replied/quoted w extra tips!
