MUET Reading March 2016 Suggested Answers

Long awaited, I'm sure. First there was the school holidays and then I only just today got a hardcopy of the exam as my students are not taking this March exam. Anyway, I have cross checked with a fellow friend and we only have minor differences. Below are my answers, NOT MPM's. I'm curious to find out how come the tabulation of the first 7 questions has no 'A' and 2 'B's and soooo many 'C's (5!)... I wonder if anyone can enlighten me on this? Feel free to contact me.

Here is a link to the scanned Reading paper. Try it before checking answers! (Reading Mac 2016)

Open for discussion:
1. C (do not be tricked to do 68-6=62 that global life expectancy in 1990 is for child, not BOY as required by the question)
2. B (72-54=18, not 9)
3. C (no info on fewer children)
4. C (no info on reason/income increase)
5. B (75.8)
6. C (no info on women)

  1. Thank you vy much

  2. question 1 : child including boy + girl isn't>?

    1. i agree with you

    2. i also agree with you. so i think answer should be A

    3. yes i totally agree with u. a child born is including a boy born. So i think the answer is A too.

    4. correct. Answer is A. As a child also means a boy. So 6 years earlier is 62.

  3. Thank you ��

  4. hello,may i know when will the muet result for march 2016 session be out?

  5. Thank you ... between I would like to know also when the MUET mac 2016 result will be released ?

    1. Usually the result will be released almost 2 months from the written exam date. Means it might be around 10 May. If i'm not mistaken.

  6. hi,teacher,can u provide a softcopy of muet reading paper of march,july and november 2013 papers and 2014 march and november papers.I cannot find those papers through the internet.I really need these papers for me to try to answer them because I need to suit for the papers for the actual exam .I am a candidate of MUET JULY session 2016.Kindly for your help and I am grateful for it.Thank you,teacher!My aim is too achieve band 3/4(maximum or maybe can try to aim for a band 5) in my MUET July papers.

  7. i got 30/45 based on this answer. Means 80/120. Really hope for band 4.

  8. is it possible to score band 4 if we only get 28/45? Teacher pls answer me as this one of the requirement of the uni in order for me to enter degree.

    1. If u calculate /300, 28/45 is equivalent to 75/120. It also means u scored 187.5/300. Band 4 already for your reading paper. It depends on your 3 other papers. I think u can attain it if u scored band 4 for each paper respectively.

  9. Hi Ms Audrey, thanks so much for the answer guidelines, I truly appreciate your effort.
    For the March 2016 Reading Paper No. 33, the question states "that(line 29)" refers to...
    I felt there was something wrong with the question. Shouldn't it be
    "that(line 27)" instead of line 29?
    I personally feel that "that(line 29)" is a sentence connector and it's not referring to anything.
    Would really appreciate your help and advice. Thanks in advance and have a nice day ahead. :)

  10. Got 41/45, hopefully this is correct. Huzzah!

  11. I disagree with answer provided to question 1 and question 28. Question 1 has already been debated above. Whereas for Question 28, I feel "A vaccine that would curb the disease for good"- Line 18 is the key. It may be an elusive solution, but still a solution if the researchers succeeded nonetheless. Correct me if I'm wrong! :)

  12. Hi all, the results are out!

    Thanks to Miss Audrey's tips and guidance, I got band 5, 9 marks short of band 6.

    1. Hi, Yong wei here! It's there the Ms.Audrey's answer almost similar with you?

    2. yes almost similar. according to her answers, mine is 41/45 and i did get 109 for my reading

  13. i scored band 4, in the middle of it. congrats Julie Ann.

  14. i score higher band 4.for Reading, i correct 32/45 based on above answer. But after results released, i correct 33/45

    1. Awesome. So my answers are 44/45. Tq. Congrats on your result!

    2. Awesome. So my answers are 44/45. Tq. Congrats on your result!

  15. I scored a Band 6 for my MUET. A big thank you to Ms Audrey. The tips and guidelines you've given in this blog for the Writing Component are really helpful!

  17. Thank you for sharing this interesting information here. Great post. And I agree with you that it is really hardly to find a student who enjoys executing college assignments. All these processes require spending much time and efforts, that is why i recommend all the students use the professional writing service Evolution Writers Good luck.
