In Malaysia, students who wish to pursue their education at tertiary level are required to have obtained at least a Band 3 for the Malaysian University English Test (MUET). In the case of UTHM, students with Band 2 are still accepted for enrollment into most of its academic programmes but will need to re-sit and obtain at least a Band 3 before they graduate. Although attempts have been made to improve their results, many students still fail to achieve the required Band. In many cases, the failure was due to their limited knowledge about the technique of dealing with the questions.
The MUET Preparatory Course is designed to help these students prepare for MUET. It provides students with tips and techniques on how to deal with the four skills in MUET. The facilitators who conduct this course have many years of experience in marking the test, and therefore know the tips and strategies to answer MUET questions. It is hoped that the course will provide students with the skills and techniques needed and increase their confidence level in dealing with MUET.
