MUET is a test of English language proficiency, largely for university admissions. The test is set and run by the Malaysian Examinations Council (which also runs the Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia(STPM) examination) and largely recognized only in Malaysia and Singapore.

I'm going to share with you the tips and ideas for Question 1! Actually, I don't know whether it's true or not, because writing part is actually don't have marking scheme! I get tips from my MUET teacher, I found this very helpful, hence I share here^^Don't you think so?

Example++
Question 1
You are a sub-editor working at Mostly Mags, a firm that publishes magazines.You have been asked to write a short report on the sale of magazines from January to March. Your article should migrate all the information given below. You should write 150 to 200 words.

Mostly Mags Advertisement Specials
1 January: Subscribe to any magazine for a year and receive an exercising kit absolutely free.
2 February: 10 per cent discount for all magazines
3 March: Buy one free one (applies to all magazines except Homedecor)

(Graph)
Look at the graph shown above.

1. Title
2. Introduction (First Paragraph)
3. Overview (Second Paragraph)
4. Analysis (4 A) (Third Paragraph) (Data!!)
5. Synthesis (4 S) (Fourth Paragraph) (Data+Link!!)
6. Conclusion (Last Paragraph)

Model Answer (By teacher):
The Sale of Magazines from January to March
    The graph shows the sale of four magazines and Mostly Mags advertisement specials from January to March.

    The Mostly Mags advertisement specials influences the number of Magazines sold from January to March.

    The highest number of magazines sold throughout three months is Supermuscles, that's 53000. The lowest number of magazines sold from January to March is Homedecor, only 30000.The most number of magazines sold in January is Supermuscles, followed by Household Pets. In February, the most number of magazines sold is Household Pets while the least number is Personal Grooming. In March, the magazines sold for Supermuscles and Household Pets are the same which was 18000.

     Increase of sale from January to February is influence by 10% discount except Supermuscles. The promotion of free exercising kit to one year subscriber influenced the total number of magazines sold in January to be higher than February, which was 56000 and 55000 respectively. In March, Homedecor shows the lowest number of magazines sold as the buy one free one exclude Homedecor.

    In conclusion, the number of magazines sold in these four magazines are dependent on the Mostly Mags advertisement specials.//Readers choice changes according to offers given.
