PENDAHULUAN

maklumat yang komprehensif sebagai wadah untuk semua calon - calon melakukan
persediaan yang rapi bagi menghadapi peperiksaan. Setiap tahun secara kasarnya
terdapat 2 kali peperiksaan iaitu pada bulan Julai dan November (kebiasaannya).
Tetapi bermula dari tahun 2012, terdapat 3 kali dan puluhan ribu calon yang
mengambil peperiksaan ini di seluruh negara. Tiadanya rujukan khusus yang
boleh dijadikan persediaan sebelum menduduki peperiksaan adalah antara faktor
kenapa calon GAGAL dalam peperiksaan ini dan betapa peningnya mendapat
maklumat yang bercampur-baur dari internet. Kami yakin anda turut
mengalaminya dan anda harus bersyukur kerana menjumpai laman
http://www.rahsialulusmuet.com yang bakal mengenengahkan kepada anda
bagaimana nak melakukan persediaan yang rapi dan sekaligus LULUS dengan
jayanya peperiksaan ini nanti.

Terima kasih dan tahniah untuk anda yang memilih untuk memiliki PRPM ini, dan
jadikanlah http://www.rahsialulusmuet.com sebagai rujukan utama untuk lulus
dengan cemerlang dalam Peperiksaan MUET. Pembelian anda ialah sebahagian dari
mendapatkan rujukan yang terbaik dan lengkap di masa-masa genting anda untuk
Peperiksaan Malaysia University English Test (MUET) nanti. Diharapkan juga Pakej
Rujukan ini bakal membantu persediaan anda untuk LULUS dan melayakkan diri ke
menara gading nanti.

Penghargaan kepada semua Team MUET dan juga penasihat, Mdm Audrey Koh
(Speaking Examiner since 2003) dalam menyiapkan PRPM ini. Mudah-mudahan
usaha ini dapat menyumbang kepada keputusan yang bagus buat anda semua
dalam peperiksaan MUET nanti.

Pengenalan Kepada MUET

Dalam aras sistem pendidikan di Malaysia, selain daripada Bahasa Melayu atau
Bahasa Kebangsaan, terdapat satu lagi bahasa iaitu Bahasa Inggeris yang
sememangnya memainkan peranan yang penting dalam mempertingkatkan
keupayaan seseorang calon itu. Oleh demikian satu peperiksaan yang dikenali
sebagai Malaysia University English Test (MUET) telah diperkenalkan oleh
Kementerian Pendidikan bagi mempertingkatkan martabat Bahasa Inggeris itu
sendiri.
Bukan untuk menakutkan anda tetapi pada hakikatnya peratusan calon lulus
Peperiksaan MUET ini cuma 45% sahaja yang mendapat Band 3 ke atas untuk satu-
satu peperiksaan MUET pada tahun 2007 yang lalu. Dan saya percaya inilah
statistik yang lebih kurang sama untuk MUET tahun ini dan yang akan datang.
Kenapa ini terjadi?
Kepada anda yang akan mengambil MUET sesi 2014, adakah anda betul-betul
sudah bersedia? Ada beberapa soalan yang ingin saya tanyakan kepada anda.
Jawablah dengan sejujurnya ..
1. Sudahkah anda memantapkan tatabahasa Bahasa Inggeris anda?
2. Sudahkan anda meningkatkan kosakata Bahasa Inggeris anda?
3. Sudahkah anda tingkatkan pembacaan anda?
4. Sudahkan anda membeli buku-buku MUET dengan soalan-soalan sebenar
untuk membiasakan diri anda dengan format MUET?
Jangan risau, ebook ini menyediakan panduan lengkap buat anda ..
Untuk mereka yang akan mengambil Malaysia University English Test atau lebih
dikenali dengan singkatan MUET adalah penting untuk anda mengetahui apakah
komponen-komponen atau aspek yang akan diuji didalam Peperiksaan MUET itu
nanti, apakah markah maksimum untuk setiap komponen dan juga apakah markah
yang diperlukan untuk mencapai sesuatu Band. Anda perlu tahu kesemua ini
dengan terang dan jelas agar anda akan lebih bersedia untuk mengambil
Peperiksaan MUET dan mendapat keputusan cemerlang.

Apa itu MUET?
Malaysian University English Test atau lebih dikenali dengan singkatan (MUET) mula
diperkenalkan dalam sistem pendidikan di Malaysia pada tahun 1999 dan
peperiksaan ini dikendalikan oleh Malaysian Examinations Council atau Majlis
Peperiksaan Malaysia (MPM). MUET diperkenalkan untuk mengukur tahap
penguasaan Bahasa Inggeris calon-calon institusi pengajian tinggi dan juga buat
mereka yang bercadang untuk melanjutkan pelajaran ke institusi pengajian tinggi
di Malaysia. Peperiksaan MUET ini wajib diambil oleh mereka yang ingin
melanjutkan pengajian di peringkat ijazah pertama (Degree) di Institusi Pengajian
Tinggi awam (IPTA) tempatan.
Bermula pada tahun 2012, ujian peperiksaan MUET ini akan dijalankan sebanyak
tiga (3) kali setahun dan dijangka akan berlangsung pada bulan Mac, Julai dan
November dimana tiada syarat khusus dikenakan untuk mengambil peperiksaan ini.
Kadar bayaran yuran peperiksaan MUET yang baharu berkuat kuasa tahun 2012
ialah RM100 untuk setiap calon yang mengambil peperiksaan dimana ia
merangkumi bayaran RM40 untuk bayaran asas dan bakinya RM60 untuk bayaran
matapelajaran.
Bagi calon yang bercadang untuk menyemak semula keputusan ujian peperiksaan
MUET, kadar caj yang dikenakan ialah sebanyak RM70 dimana tarikh tutup rayuan
semak semula ini ialah dua (2) minggu selepas tarikh keputusan ujian peperiksaan
MUET ini diumumkan.
Dibawah, disediakan kalender bagi ujian peperiksaan MUET untuk tahun 2014, anda

remain strong, especially for medical gloves. Historically, the rubber glove industry
has been blessed with rapid growth in global demand - estimated at 8% to l 0%
per annum. The growth in demand is anticipated to continue, driven mainly by the
traditional medical market and an aging population. Malaysian glove makers are the
world's leading players, accounting for 55% to 65% of the market share. Industry
players have also begun to focus on nitride gloves as these gloves have become
more popular in hospitals due to their low protein content versus latex gloves.
A lending glove manufacturer, Mr. Lim, expects demand for medical gloves to be
stable, if not increase. "Greater emphasis will be placed on healthcare in companies
annual budgets as no one can afford to fall sick or incur heavy medical expenses in
such times. Therefore, the medical glove industry is resilient in any economic
climate," he said. Nevertheless, he predicted a slight decrease in demand
for industrial and laboratory gloves from the non-medical sectors, including the
electrical and electronics and food and beverage sectors during periods of economic
slowdown which could lead to lower business activities and thus lower usage.
while we are more prudent in terms of expression, we will focus on research and
development to offer higher value products. We aim to achieve double-digit growth
in revenue for the next two or three years. With our new plant which produces
premium grade nitride gloves scheduled to run soon, we are confident of achieving
our targeted growth, he said.
Another lending glove company reported that the group had allocated some
RM80 million for capital expenditure, which would include expansion and potential
acquisitions. "We continue to focus on producing high quality products efficiently and
at a low cost. The main challenge for the industry is the volatility of latex price,
crude oil price and also foreign exchange. As long as all these factors remain stable,
it will be good for us. As rubber gloves constitute less than 1% of the total cost of
healthcare centres, any increase in selling price deemed too insignificant to affect
overall demand," he said.

Questions 8 to 14 are based on the following passage.

1 Europe's population is, right now, peaking, after more than six centuries of
continuous growth. With each generation reproducing only half its number, this
looks like the start of a continent-wide collapse in numbers. Some predict wipe
out by 2100.
2 Half a century ago, Europe was basking in a post-war baby boom, with 2.8
babies per woman in Britain, 2.9 in France, and 3.2 in the Netherlands. Then,
levels sank back. Demographers assumed that fertility would settle down at about
the level required to maintain the population - slightly more than two babies per
woman. The trouble is nobody told Europe's women
3 In the real world, even the swinging 60s did not see a lot of procreation.
By the mid-80s, alarm bells were ringing. "Europe is entering a demographic
winter," declared demographer Gerard-Francois Dumont. Ron Lesthaeghe at the
Free University of Brussels blamed ''post-materialistic values, in which self-
development becomes the primary aim.
4 A resolution at the European parliament in 1984 warned that Europe's
share of the world's population was set to halve between 1950 and 2000, and
was likely to halve again as soon as 2025. This trend, it said, "will have a
decisive effect on the significance of the role Europe will play in the world in
future decades." The twentieth century began with western Europe producing
I 0 million babies a year; by the end it couldn't manage 6 million-2 million
fewer than it needs to maintain the population in the long term. That baby
famine is now heading into a second generation; it is no longer a blip.
5 Demographically, Europe is living on borrowed time. It already badly
needs foreign hands to keep its societies and economies functioning, and
should stop pretending otherwise.
6 Thirty years ago, 23 European countries had fertility above replacement
levels; now none docs, with only France, Iceland, Albania, Britain and Ireland
anywhere near. And last year's economic downturn threatens to depress fertility
further.
7 Once a country has very low fertility for a generation, it begins to run
out of young women able to gestate future generations. Germany is there
already: it has only half as many children under 1 0 as adults in their 40s.
Demographer Peter McDonald calculates that if Italy gets stuck with recent
fertility levels, and fails to top up with foreign migrants, it will lose 86% of its
population by the end of the century, falling to 8 million compared with today's
56 million. Spain will lose 85%, Germany R3% and Greece 74%.
8 Jesse Ausubel, a futurologist at Rockefeller University in New York,
fears "the twilight of' the west" as Europe's population thins and ages. But,
population historian David Reher told the journal Science in 2006 that, "As
population and tax revenues decline in Europe, urban areas could well be filled
with empty buildings and crumbling infrastructure ... surrounded by large
areas which look more like what we might see in some science-fiction movies.

Questions 15 to 21 are based on the following passage.

1 A 15-second scene for a Chinese movie, Bodyguard' and Assassins, is being shot not
on location but on an elaborate set built on the outskirts of Shanghai. As big as
10 football fields, this full-scale replica of a section of the former British colony took
a year to build, costs $5 million a fifth of the film's budget and includes the
facades of about 200 shops.
2 It also symbolizes a massive investment in the future of Chinese cinema
Grand historical sets are a staple of Chinese epics. But in the past, most of those
films were shot with international money for an international audience. Bodyguards and
assassins represents a new model of Chinese filmmaking. It has 100 per cent Chinese
financing - half private and half public - and is being shot primarily for a
Chinese audience. In the past, the size of the mainland Chinese market alone would
not have supported such a big-budget film. But in the last couple of years the
Chinese market has exploded, and for the first time films are being produced for just
that audience. Foreign sales are no longer the biggest slice of the pie in terms of
recoup. The majority of the investments, if not all, can be recouped with the
projected revenue of the Chinese market alone.
3 Compared with Hollywood or even Hollywood, the Chinese film industry is
still in its infancy. Private companies have been allowed to film independently only
since 2002, and private-equity players began to invest in the industry just in
2007. But with a domestic box office that ballooned from $117 million five years
ago to $630 million in 2008, it is becoming easier for Chinese films to attract private
domestic capital. They got a boost from international blockbusters as well as
acclaimed local films. Total box-office revenues for 2009 reached $800 million. That
is still a long way from the $9.8 billion the U.S. box office earned in 2008, but
mainland China so far has only 4100 movie screens, compared with 38 834 in the
United States.
4 The race is now on. New movie theaters are opening every week, increasingly
in smaller cities. Dadi Cinemas Co., a Hong Kong-based firm that started building
cinemas on the mainland less than three years ago, will have 300 screens by the end
of the year; Dadi's chairman, John Sham, says the company's objective is to build
1500 screens within the next five years. Dadi's strategy has been to concentrate on
second-tier cities, where are often no movie theaters, and to keep ticket prices at a
quarter to a third of those for cinemas in larger cities.
5 Five years ago, Chinese filmmakers had to go to Hong Kong producers to
finance their films, since those people controlled the distribution pipeline outside
China, where a big-budget film would have to show to recoup its money. Though
they are still looking to Hong Kong firms for their expertise, Chinese production
house are increasingly in the drivers seat.
6 But for all the rising box-office revenues, Chinese cinema has yet to mine a key
stream of potential riches: spin-offs. In Hollywood, box-office receipts account for
just 30 per cent of a films revenues, with the rest coming from television rights, DVD
sales, and merchandising. "Residual income outside box-office receipts is very
low in China - no more than 20 per cent - because television is still a monopoly, there
is no video-on-demand platform, and DVD piracy is still a very big issue, says
Sham. There is a lot of room for residual income to grow. China prove with its
Olympic mascots that it can fully capitalize on merchandising. It won't be long

Questions 22 to 29 are based on the following passage.

1 When Kellogg introduced breakfast cereal to India 14 years ago, it underestimated
the tradition of cooked breakfasts. The few customers for cornflakes ate them with
hot milk, because until recently milk was rarely pasteurized in India, and they were
disappointed by the soggy results.
2 Kellogg responded with an extensive advertising campaign and, to adapt
to local tastes, introduced products like Basmati rice flakes and mango-
flavored cereal. To entice customers, the company also produced small packs that
sold for 10 rupees, or 25 U.S. cents. "It would be foolhardy for me to say
Kellogg has replaced cooked breakfast. I don't think we can ever hope for that.
But we've become a part of the consideration set tor breakfast in many Indian
homes, and that's a tipping point," said Anupam Dutta, the managing director of
Kellogg India.
3 Getting a foothold in India's processed-food market, estimated to be
worth $90 billion, requires persistence and a willingness to adapt products to
food and cultural preferences. Rising incomes, more working women, modern
stores and greater culinary choices are helping companies like PepsiCo, Nestle,
Unilever and McDonald's get a piece of the market. Adaptation appears to be
essential for success in the sector. PepsiCo for example, has produced strong sales
from ethnic salty snacks and sells aam panna, or green mango nectar, along with its
colas.
4 Nestle promoted Milkmaid, a condensed milk, as being ideal for traditional
Indian sweets. But it had better results with Maggi noodles, a bold step in a country
divided between eaters of rice and roti, a flat wheat bread. Maggi soon became a
staple in school lunch boxes, helped by masala, or mixed spices. Nestle recently
introduced packaged yogurt, competing with another time-honoured Indian
tradition. A few years ago, Indian and foreign companies struggled to sell packaged
foods. But now it is much easier to break into the Indian market because of a
younger population, higher incomes, new technologies and a growing middle class,
estimated at 50 million households.
5 Hemant Kalbag of A.T. Kearney, a consulting company, estimates
that processed foods will grow at 15 per cent annually over the next four years.
"We have a young population with higher disposable incomes, living away from
the large joint families and seeking greater convenience. The market is constantly
evolving and creating demand for products that you never thought would have had a
chance. Increasingly, Indian consumption patterns are mirroring global trends
such as a preference for protein and for functional foods," said Kalbag.

6 McDonald's which is doubling its outlets in India to nearly 300 this year, does
not sell beef products in the country. Half its menu is vegetarian, with popular
offerings like the McAloo Tikki Burger, which is essentially a potato patty. The
company also has more sit-down restaurants for large Indian families and home
delivery, a first.
7 Indian companies are imitating these fast-food rivals to attract
young customers. For instance, Jumbo King, an Indian fast-food chain, is mass
producing vada pav, a spiced potato patty in a bun, using modified cookie-dough
machines and temperature-controlled stoves. Their inspiration is clearly
McDonald's.
8 Despite the opportunity, there are longstanding hurdles. Cumbersome
tax rules give an advantage to smaller local companies. And the refrigerated system
of transportation and storage is inadequate. Problems in this cold chain result in
waste of nearly 40 per cent of all fresh produce. There is a need for stronger
legislation on food safety, more robust supply chains and improvements in the
cold chain. The government and modern retailers are addressing these issues with
new laws on packaging and labeling, as well as greater investment in the supply
chain.

Questions 30 to 37 are based on the following passage.

1 Rosette Babkian knew that something was seriously wrong. She had woken up
with a burning discomfort in her chest and an upset stomach and vomited soon after
she got to work. Her doctor called an ambulance and before she knew it, the 43-
year-old Sydney mother of three was in the emergency unit. For the next seven
hours, hospital staff ran a battery of tests, but couldn't find the problem. "They
kept on giving me Mylanta. They thought it was a stomach ulcer or a bit of this
or a bit of that," says Rosette. By late at1ernoon, a cardiologist was finally called
and diagnosed what the other staff had missed: Rosette had suffered a heart
attack.
2 Amazingly, her story is not an unusual one. Men and women often
present different sets of symptoms when they experience heart attacks. Yet,
because hospital protocols - the way staff are trained to react and subsequently
act - are typically based on the symptoms that men present, women are ot1en
misdiagnosed, wait longer for correct treatment or may even be sent home
untreated.
3 Men and women are not the same. That is hardly an earth-shattering
revelation. Yet traditionally, women have been viewed by the medical profession
as simply smaller versions of men. Now, however, scientists are revealing how
wrong- and dangerous- that assumption really is. Researchers are uncovering tiny
biological differences at every level - from the cells up- which influence the way
men and women experience disease and how they need to be treated for it.
4 "Men and women share more than 99 per cent of their genetic
material But sometimes the small genetic differences result in dramatic differences as
far as diagnosis and treatment go," says Dr Susan Philips of Queen's University
in Ontario, Canada.
5 For example, researchers now know that men and women metabolize drugs in
different ways- the balance of hormones and distribution of body fat play a part in
determining how the chemicals are stored and used. Womens brains are more plastic
than men's, meaning they recover more easily from strokes. And men's bodies respond
to certain types of pain in different ways from women's bodies and may need
different treatment for it.
6 That is not all. As well as the way our bodies are put together, our gender
also affects our health outcomes, thanks to the way in which society shapes us as
men and women. Women are more likely to see their doctor and take care of their
health. Men, on the other hand, generally do not visit the doctor until their disease
has progressed further, so they are more likely to die from it. Men also suffer
higher rates of accident and injury, including suicide. Yet much of the evidence on
which medicine is based does not take gender differences into account.
7 Unfortunately, that is what happened to Rosette Babkian. Her heart
attack symptoms foil into a definition of "atypical" symptoms which are based on
male experience. As a result of the delay in her treatment, she suffered
permanent damage to her heart muscle.
8 Why is this happening? Around the world, more clinical trials have been
carried out on young white men. It is more complicated for researchers to include
women, because they have had to factor in complexities such as fluctuating hormone
levels through menstruation or menopause. In addition, drug companies are wary of
testing their new products on women who might be pregnant.

9 There is also the question of how medical studies are funded, the more
homogeneous the group, the more rapidly you can explore the question you're
asking," explains Dr Jo Wainer, director of the Gender and Medicine Research
Unit at Monash University. "As soon as you introduce confounders like sex and
ethnicity, the more complicated the study is and the more expensive it becomes.
10 However, it is not just women who have missed out on important research.
One in eight cases of osteoporosis involves a male, but little research has been
done into the disease in men: the evidence on which their treatment is based is
extrapolated from studies on women. It is the same for reproductive medicine:
there is not even a male equivalent to the discipline of gynecology.
11 Ten years ago, the US National Institute of Health made it a prerequisite
for government funding that if the research is on health issues that affect both men
and women, both sexes must be included in trials and the data analyzed for any
gender differences. As well as changing the way research is conducted, it is also
important to consider gender when it comes to the way doctors are trained and health
services are delivered, Dr Wainer says.

Questions 38 to 45 are based on the following passage.

1 Man has changed the landscape and the atmosphere. It would be odd if the
seas, which he has for centuries used for food, for transport, for dumping rubbish
and, more recently, for recreation, had not also been affected. Man has brought
about a hotter atmosphere and warmer seas.
2 Melting sea ice affects ecosystems and currents. It does not affect sea
levels, 5 because floating ice is already displacing water of a weight equal to its
own. But melting glaciers and ice sheets on land are bringing quantities of fresh
water into the sea, whose level has been rising at an average of nearly 2
millimeters a year for over 40 years, and the pace is getting faster. Recent studies
suggest that the sea level may well rise by a total of 80 centimeters this century,
though the figure could 10 plausibly be as much as 2 meters.
3 The burning over the past 100 years or so of fossil fuels that took half a
billion years to form has suddenly, in geological terms, released an enormous
amount of carbon dioxide (CO,) into the atmosphere. About a third of this C0
2
is taken up by the sea, where it forms carbonic acid. The plants and animals
that have 15 evolved over time to thrive in slightly alkaline surface waters-their
pH is around 8.3 - are now having to adapt to a 30 per cent increase in the
acidity of their surroundings. Some will no doubt flourish, but if the trend
continues, as it will for at least some decades, clams, mussels, conches and all
creatures that grow shells made of calcium carbonate will struggle. So will
corals, especially those 20 whose skeletons are composed of aragonite, a particularly
unstable form of calcium carbonate.
4 Mans interference does not stop with CO2. Knowingly and deliberately, he
throws plenty of rubbish and toxic waste into the sea. Inadvertently, he also lets
flame retardants, bunker oil and heavy metals seep into the mighty ocean, and often
invasive species too. Much of the harm done by such pollutants is invisible to the
eye: it shows up only in the analysis of dead polar bears or in tuna served in New
York sushi bars.
5 Increasingly, though, swimmers, sailors and even those who monitor the sea
with the help of satellites are encountering highly visible algal blooms known as red
30 tides, which have increased in frequency, number and size in recent years, notably
since man made nitrogen fertilizers came into widespread use in the 1950s. When
rainwater contaminated with these fertilizers and other nutrients reaches the sea, an
explosion of toxic algae and bacteria takes place, killing fish, absorbing almost all
the oxygen and leaving a microbially-dominated ecosystem.
6 Each of these phenomena would be bad enough on its own, but all appear to
be linked, usually synergistically. Slaughter one species in the food web and you
set off a chain of alterations above or below. Thus, the near extinction of sea otters in the
northern Pacific led to a proliferation of sea urchins, which then laid waste an entire
kelp forest that had hitherto sustained its own ecosystem.

7 Whereas, misfortunes that came singly might not prove fatal, those that
come in combination often prove overwhelming. The few coral reefs that remain pristine
seem able to cope with the warming and acidification that none can escape, but
most of the reefs that have also suffered overfishing or pollution have succumbed to
bleaching or even death. Biodiversity comes with interdependence, and the shocks
administered by mankind in recent decades have been so numerous and so severe
that the natural balance of marine life is disturbed.
8 Are these changes reversible? Most scientists believe that fisheries, for instance
could be restored to health with the right policies, properly enforced. But many of
the changes are speeding up, not slowing down. Some, such as the acidification of
50 the seas, will continue for years to come simply because of events already
in train or past. And some, such as the melting of the Arctic ice cap, may be close
to the point at which an abrupt, and perhaps irreversible, series of happenings is set in
motion.
9 It is clear, in any event, that man must change his ways. A world of 6.7
billion 55 souls, set to become 9 billion by 2050, cannot afford to treat the sea as
an infinite resource.
