    • Every brain drain is a potential brain gain ...Do you agree or disagree ? How to write this type of essay? I definitely do not know how start it ?

    • It discusses the issue of our graduates and educated people migrating to other countries to work. You have to discuss how the country could gain in knowledge (brain) if they managed to keep these workers in Malaysia rather than working for other countries. Some suggested points: 1) leaving the country means knowlegable ppl in malaysia is reduced, 2) Malaysia is forced to hire foreigners to work (negative effect on foreign exchange), 3) country spends a lot of money on quality education through upgrade of local tertiary institutes so if when they graduate they do not serve the country (brain drain), Malaysia will lack innovative minds capable of new innovations to propel us forward because all the geniuses will prefer to work in other countries. The conclusion is that the govt must make it attractive for local brains to stay in the country and contribute back to society. The recent 2012 budget tabled by our PM includes higher allocation for human resource development esp the empowerment of women in business.

  4. Hi Mrs Audrey, I have a question about the Writing Question 1.
    Should I -
    1. analyze the data by just mentioning how much is the percentage drop (ex. the usage of bus dropped by 5% from 2010 to 2011) , or
    2. just state according to the stimulus (ex. usage of buses dropped from 20% in 2010 to 15% 2011.)

    I'm not really sure what is the best way of answering Question 1, I've been relying on reference books only.

  5. shareena... both are acceptable ..making sense of the data is better. highest, lowest, most preferred, least preferred etc. But not advisable to convert the data into complicated calculations. And never add your own assumptions/opinions.

    Reference books are not very accurate because they dont follow Majlis Peperiksaan Malaysia's answer scheme. Longman and Oxford are more reliable than info didik n cerdik... that is my personal opinion. :P good luck!

    Thank you in advance :)

  8. emily: yes can add other reasons. you just need to discuss the issue in a mature and critical way while showing off good grammar and vocabulary.

  10. Hi Madam Audrey!
    I must say, your writing is simple and logic, the ideas seems to connect each other in harmony.
    By the way, I think the questions that willshow up this 19th Nov. is.. human trafficking. But maybe there's some other topic that they'll focus on.. No way it's going to be about Malaysia's economy right? That's too detailed.. LOL

    1. to my knowledge this topic will never come out because it is against govt policy and the topic is bias to those who know abt this concept. it is too difficult and sensitive a topic to discuss at MUET level.

    1. examiners can't give out answer given by the students in an examination. even if the name of the student is not mentioned the question paper have to be return to the MPM if i am not mistaken.
