MUET Writing Essay Format 2013


Time flies fast, it's been 2 years I took MUET exam. Anyway, as promised in early January, I will write atleast 1 Muet essay this year as to show my sincere thankful to all blog visitors. Nevertheless, after referring to Madam Audrey (Muet My Way), I realize that it's quite challenging because the formats keep changing and uncertainty. Moreover, the Muet academic essay writing question often leads to misunderstanding, which means that MPM's marking scheme for writing still has so much difference as compared to majority of students thoughts, finally resulted in low marks/ grades. Hence, to avoid mistake, I will get as more accurate informations as possible in order to write a correct essay =)  In this post, I'm going to share Muet Writing Essay Format.

Example of Thesis Statement
(a)
They say that money makes the world go round. And indeed it does as without money, life would be very difficult as in today’s society, nothing is free. The side effect however is that people are becoming more materialistic; more concerned with making money and what money can buy. But how much money is enough? Is it ever enough? To some, it will never be enough. In my opinion, I truly believe that this statement is true and that people are becoming more materialistic in nature. In this essay, I will discuss how materialism has affected modern society’s way of life on an individual level, the country’s economy as well as our spiritual and moral beliefs.
_________________________________________________________________
(b)
It is true that no ‘man is an island’ meaning that no one in this world can live alone without friendship. That person would be very socially challenged as he or she would miss the camaraderie and life experiences that come with friendship. However, I completely disagree with the statement that the most valuable thing in life is friendship as there are certainly more important and priceless things in life besides this. In this essay, I will outline how life itself is more valuable than friendship, and elaborate on why family and the individual’s principles in life are ranked higher.
