Firstly, extract the TITLE from the question and underline it.

For the first paragraph, it consists of minimum 2 sentences: the OverView (OV)
and Controlling Idea (CI).

OV- What does the stimuli present? Answer: a bar graph, diagram, pie chart,
pictograph, newspaper headline or article, some notes etc.

CI- What is the general trend of all the stimuli combined? Answer: Increasing,
Decreasing, Consistent or Fluctuating (NOTE: These are the FOUR main trends)

For the second and/or third paragraphs, you need to identify the Key Features
(KFs) which are the MOST OUTSTANDING ideas from the stimuli.
(NOTE: report will be marked DOWN if students just LIST ALL FEATURES and
information from the stimuli without choosing the MOST IMPORTANT AND
OUTSTANDING details, students must be SELECTIVE of which details to include)

*There is no set number of KFs that need to be identified unlike PMR summary (5
points), SPM summary (10 points). Therefore, this report writing is more difficult
to perfect as it depends heavily on the students' understanding and proficiency.

**Also ensure that students do not make any external ASSUMPTIONS! Do not give
your own ideas and opinions no matter how plausible they may be. This is NOT
LIKE PENGAJIAN AM where ANDAIAN is part of the marking scheme.

***You may write in just 1 paragraph but 2 or 3 paragraphs are also accepted,
generally it depends on what kind of stimuli are given. Begin each paragraph with
phrases like:
i) According to the...
ii) Based on the...
iii) With reference to...

For the closing, it consists of minimum two sentences, Prediction (Pi) and
Proposal (Pii).
P(i)- What future trend can you predict? Answer: If x happens, then y will
continue to increase, decrease, stabilise or fluctuate.
P(ii)- What recommendation can you propose? Answer: The
government/company/United Nations can...
*P(ii) is not compulsory but it will differentiate the higher bands from the lower
ones.
Frequency of Visits to the Three Music Websites by Teenagers

The stimuli present a bar graph on visits to the three music websites by
teenagers in the month of August and a table on promotional activities of the
three sites within the same period. In general, visits to the music websites
especially Music Connect increased in direct proportion to the frequency and type
of promotional activities provided by the websites.

According to the bar graph, Music Connect was the most popularly visited
website by teenagers as it recorded a total of about 133 000 visitors for the
month of August. This was followed closely by Music Network which had 125 000
visitors while the least visited of the three websits was Era Music with only 50
000 visitors. The number of visitors fluctuated from week to week and website to
website depending on how attractive were the promotional activities carried out
by each website each week.

Based on the table, Music Network was the only website that had a promotional
activity called 'Name that tune' in the first week therefore it scored the highest
hits with 40 000 visitors compared to Music Connect (15 000) and Era Music (10
000). In week 2, Music Connect organised free music CDs for its visitors which
gave them 35 000 hits. This promotion was more attractive than 'Name the
singer' by Music Network and 'Name the movie' by Era Music therefore the type
of promotionial activity carried out is a major factor to draw more visitors to the
websites. Week 3 showed the least hits for all three websites as there were no
promotional activities carried out at that time. Finally, in week 4, visits to Music
Connect skyrocketed to 55 000 hits because they organised free concert tickets
for its visitors. Music Network came in second after carrying out a 'Whose line is
it' promotion compared to Era Music which attracted only 10 000 as they did not
plan any promotional activity for their website.

In conclusion, if websites carry out exciting and attractive promotional activities


such as those conducted by Music Connect, then the number of teenage visitors
will continue to increase. The websites should increase promotional activities that
can capture the attention of more teenagers by providing free gifts or meet the
celebrity tickets because it will directly affect their website's popularity especially
among the younger generation.
