MUET Writing Task 1: Report Writing Sample

This is a sample for report writing. There are a few general rule of thumbs for this question; meet the 150 words requirement and don't exceed 200 words, don't include any explanation, elaboration or examples of your own and write in paragraphs.

This is a sample for a decent mark.

MUET WRITING TASK 1 (40 marks)

The chart shows how students on all courses at a Malaysian university viewed different subjects on a scale of easy to difficult. You should write 150 to 200 words.

                    The bar chart shows whether students at a Malaysian university rated different subjects as easy, moderately difficult or difficult.
                    The subject which was most commonly rated as difficult was maths, by 70% of students. Only 20% saw it as easy. Physics was also largely judged to be a difficult or moderately difficult subject. Only 25% of students viewed it as easy. By contrast, chemistry was regarded as easy by a massive 70% of students.
                    As far as language subjects are concerned, languages in general were seen as easy by 40% of students. This percentage dropped to 20% for oriental languages. African languages, however, were viewed as easy by 60% of students. Next, Art was judged to be an easy subject by only 30% of students and like Physics, 50% rated it as difficult.
       In conclusion, there seems to be no clear correspondence between the type of subject and whether it was generally rated as easy or difficult.
