Latest format for Report Writing MUET Writing Paper 800/4 Question 1

Hi all... I've received a few emails and messages about the report writing question and there appears to be some confusion. In recent posts (late last year) I did provide two samples with the revised format but I haven't shown you the new formula. So here it is.

NEW FORMULA:

TITLE
INTRO + OV
KFs
CONCLUSION


Compare this to the old formula:

TITLE
OV + CI
KFs
Pi + Pii


Actually the ONLY difference is that they require only ONE sentence for the conclusion and this conclusion does not include any prediction (Pi) or proposal (Pii).

As for the first paragraph, it consists of ONLY TWO sentences and it is exactly the same as the old format, just that MPM has decided to rename it (just to confuse us!!!!!). Therefore, the first sentence is now called the 'Introduction' where you just mention what stimuli you see (graph, chart, diagram etc) while the second one is now called 'Overview', not Controlling Idea (CI). I think this is much better because it was so hard to explain to students what a controlling idea really means. In fact, most of the MUET teachers I have trained also have problems coming up with a good OV/CI. The trick is to be able to find a trend or a connection and the most outstanding Key Feature (KF) that links ALL the stimuli given.

Anyway, click the samples link above and re-read the tips for writing a good report. If you have any questions, just ask. Happy penning!

Forgot to mention, those of you who have asked for the powerpoints, please be informed that I'm currently revising the content based on the updates in format and marking schemes. Will be presenting my first MUET seminar at KK High on 23rd next month so you can have it then but you'll have to email me closer to that time cos I've already forgotten who I need to forward it to. You know... old lady now. hehe..

  48. Hai....Audrey...I have read all your posts in your blog and I found they are really useful for my MUET classes.I need your permission to use some of the sample essays and some of the tips to be given to my students..you are such a good MUET teacher. Here I want to share one tips that I always give to my students asking them to memorize when they want to start writing a report. Actually this tips also I got from one of the best MUET teachers. The acronyms is TIOSAC. T is for title, I is for introduction, O is for overview, S is for synthesis, A is for analysis / key features and C is for conclusion. I hope I can always look at your new post and share it with my students.tq.
