MUET my way website is finally published!

Still a work in progress but I figured I needed a new platform so that people can easily find stuff cos blogspot archive is a bit messy. It may take a while to compile all the info there and since no one is paying me to do it, it might take longer than expected.. hehe esp since the school hols are right at my doorstep as I type this. Good luck to me!

MUET Exam Statistics 2011 - 2013

I have recently managed to acquire copies of the official examination reports for all STPM & MUET subjects from 2011 to 2013. Needless to say I am gobsmacked to have found such a treasure published by Pelangi and apparently ALL schools in Malaysia should have received a copy.

Anyway, from my observations, the results are quite astounding especially with the recent government announcement that for a future lawyer or doctor to graduate, they need a minimum Band 5. Look closely at the data and you will know why I'm reeling in shock.

As a MUET educator, what does this data tell you. Should you be worried?
As a MUET candidate, what are the implications to you? Should you be worried?
As a public university, what does this data translate to? Should you be worried?
As an education policy maker, how does this data reflect on the new MUET policy?
Should WE be worried?

Being worried is not enough. We each have a role to play. Together, we can make a difference.
