Here are my sample answers.

BAND 3 - 4:

Profile of Professionals & Main Goals

The stimuli present a table on the profile of professionals and


another on their main goals. In general, the two groups have
very different profiles and goals where the younger group aims
to make more money while the other focuses more on health.

According to the first table, most professionals aged 18 to 27


are junior executives and earn an average of RM3000 with 5
years of work experience. Only 40% of young professionals are
married while almost all senior professionals are married (95%).
Senior managers aged between 46 to 55 have an average of 20
years work experience. They earn more than triple the salary of
a junior executive.

Based on the second table, both groups have very different


goals for the year ahead. The younger group ranks making more
money as top priority followed by improving technology and
communication skills. Meanwhile, the older group focuses more
on health, saving money and prioritising family time while goals
related to money, improving skills and new friends are not as
important to them.

In conclusion, priorities change depending on age group where


the younger generation focuses on making money while the
older generation cares more about their health and saving
money.

BAND 5 - 6:

Profile of Professionals & Main Goals for the Year Ahead by Age
Group

The stimuli present a table on profiles of professionals and


another on their main goals for the year ahead. In general, the
youngsters focus on accumulating wealth while the more
affluent older group can afford to concentrate on health.

Based on the information provided, the profile of a professional


from the 18 to 27 years age group are mainly junior executives
who have worked an average of 5 years and 40% are married.
They only earn RM3000 so and their main goal is to make more
money. Also top on their list is to improve their technology and
communication skills rather than saving money or spending time
with family.

The profile of an older professional is completely opposite as


these 46 to 55 year olds hold the position of senior manager
with 20 years experience and earn more than triple a junior
executive’s salary. 95% are married therefore their priorities
have changed to focus on being more healthy, saving money and
spending family time rather than on new friendships.

In conclusion, the two groups have very different goals for the
year ahead as the juniors prioritise money and skills while the
mostly married seniors concentrate on health, savings and
family.

MARKING SCHEME MUET 800/4 Q1 & Q2 Organisation (y/30) = b/60
As requested here is the marking scheme for the writing paper. B6 : 30 - 26
B5 : 25 - 21
Q1 B4 : 20 - 16
B3 : 15 - 11
Task Fulfilment B2 : 10 - 6
(critical thinking skills, answered the requirements of the B1 : 5 - 0
question, clear introduction and overview linked stimulus,
synthesise info, many accurate key features, good conclusion TOTAL FOR WRITING PAPER Q1 (a) + Q2 (b) = z/100
etc)
B6 : 18 -20 CONVERT TO 30% weightage
B5 : 17 - 15 90/300 = z x 0.9
B4 : 14 - 11
B3 : 10 - 7 example: 50 x 0.9 = 45 marks from maximum 90 for the writing
B2 : 6 - 4 component.
B1 : 3 - 0
Total: x/20
Does anyone have any issues about how to calculate the marks
Language & Organisation for muet?
(Grammatical accuracy, vocabulary, relavant phrases,
arrangement of report (intro, key features and conclusion), It's a bit tricky but here are the breakdowns.
word count does not exceed 200 words (ignore 201 onwards)
etc.) Listening : students' mark x 45 / 20 = i
B6 : 18 - 20 Speaking : students' mark x 45 / 54 = ii
B5 : 17 -- 15 Reading : students' mark x 120 / 45 = iii
B4 : 14 - 11 Writing : students' mark x 90 /100 = ix
B3 : 10 - 7 TOTAL MUET MARKS : i + ii + iii + iv = Z/300
B2 : 6 - 4
B1 : 3 - 0 B6 : 260 - 300
Total: y/20 B5 : 220 - 259
B4 : 180 - 219
So for question 1, x + y = a/40 B3 : 140 - 179
B2 : 100 - 139
B1 : 0 -99
Q2
Same as above, Task Fulfillment (x/30) + Language & Ok.. i know what you're dying to know now. haha.. how do we
calculate the speaking marks right. This is even more candidates. when they are satisfied with the marks awarded,
complicated at the real exam level. Here goes. then the examiners will call in the next group. quite a tedious
process if you ask me, but very necessary.
Task A
a) Task fulfilment (relevant answers) maximum 18 marks HOWEVER,
b) Language max 18 marks for school exams. I use an 18 point system for Task A & B, then I
c) Communicative ability (gestures, eye contact, convincing average the marks and convert to 54 by multiplying by 3. Youc
style, confidence, fluency etc) max 18 can use this system if you like or simply ignore it if you find it is
not accurate enough.
B6 : 16 - 18
B5 : 13 - 15 low - mid - high
B4 : 10 - 12 18 - 17 -16 = B6
B3 : 7-9 13 - 14 - 15 = B5
B2 : 4-6 10 - 11 - 12 = B4
B1 : 0-3 7 - 8 - 9 = B3
4 - 5 - 6 = B2
So task A, a + b + c = x/54 1 - 2 - 3 = B1

Task B is exactly the same breakdown of marks.. max 18 each I find this to be the best method cos it's not as complicated and
category as an examiner you always have to consider if the candidate is
a) Task fulfilment (understands topic, relevant response) low, mid or high band 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
b) Language
c) Communicative ability (fuency, interact confidently, manage
a discussion, displays initative etc.)

So task B, a + b + c = x/54

TO GET THE TOTAL U HAVE TO AVERAGE TASK A & TASK B =


total x/54

In the actual exam, it gets extremely complicated cos after


every group the two examiners must have a discussion about the
performance of each candidate and standardised their marks. so
there will be adjustment of marks on the spot according to
performance and discussion of examiners, and they will double
check if they agree with the marks by ranking the four
