How I Met Myself - Themes & Moral Values

Salam Eid Mubarak and Happy National Day everybody!

I received some questions asking how to answer the literature-novel questions for How I Met Myself. You may download the notes and tips from here: Download

The file contains:
  1. A short note on the main themes and the moral values of the novel.
  2. The answer to "A character who shows determination." (Simple and advanced answers)
  3. The answer to "A character who tries to solve his/her problems." (Simple and advanced answers)
  4. The answer to "A theme in the novel."  (Simple and advanced answers)
  5. The answer to "A lesson/value learnt in the novel."  (Simple and advanced answers)
You may choose simple or advanced answer depending on your level of English. You may also mix the simple and advanced answers together. If you can write the advanced answer in the exam (with no or less errors), there's a big chance for you to get full marks.

I hope that the notes help. Do not hesitate to ask me any questions.

Hello Teacher Nuha,
I am a teacher myself, and I admire what you are doing. Keep up the good work, girl! I can proudly say now that I am now following your blog and will recommend to my students to do the same. Meanwhile, you can check out mine, too! http://ella-episodes.blogspot.com/

Hi teacher,
Do you have a note for novel "Important event" or "Ending of event "which can get 10 marks above?
Hope teacher can upload asap as my next exam coming on Tuesday.
Thanks for helping teacher!

Ruzila said...

Yes teacher Nuha, keep posting because you are doing a great job here!

Dear Anonymous,
I'm so sorry, I don't have the notes. But actually you can manipulate the themes/moral values of this novel to answer this question (and other questions). For example:
"The most important event was when John met his doppelganger for the first time. This event was important because it had changed John's life. John faced some problems after meeting his doppelganger. However, his strong determination helped him to solve his problems." (And from here you can start explaining how John solved his problems) Hope this helps.

Pn Ruzila, Alhamdulillah. Thanks for the motivating comment :)

Cikgu,
Can you please explain to me the difference between the simple answer and the advance answer because i look at them and read them they look the same to me....
Thank you :]

Teacher Nuha said...

Hi Fahmida,
The simple answer is shorter compared to the advanced answer. The simple answer contains less points too. The language used in the simple answer is much simpler.. I encourage my low proficiency students to use the simple answer. :)

Fahmida said...

Thank you so much its all helps so much... :]

Teacher Nuha said...

You're welcome Fahmida :)

Dear Anonymous February 14, 2013 at 11:16 AM,

There are lots of reasons as to why we enjoy a novel.

Here are some examples on how you may write why you enjoy reading How I Met Myself. You may state that you like the:
1) main characters - elaborate
2) plot of the story - elaborate
3) ending of the story - elaborate
4) idea of doppelganger in the story - elaborate

Elaborate the points by giving the textual evidence from the story.

You may download sample questions & answers from this link. I hope it helps.

Sorry, I forgot to put the link: Here's the link:

Dear Anonymous April 1, 2013 at 7:47 PM,

I think the answer to the question, "Do you think the title How I Met Myself is suitable" revolves on the plot of the story. In brief, you may explain:
1) How John Taylor met his doppelganger in the beginning of the story.
2) How did the meeting affect his life?
3) What did John do afterwards?
4) How many times did he meet his doppelganger?
5) Finally, why did John meet his doppelganger several times? What are the reasons?

Then, from your explanation, you may conclude whether the title "How I Met Myself" is suitable or not.

Good luck!

Cik Gu Nuha,

Can you spot a likely question that could be asked for "How I Met Myself". Last Year , the "Theme" was asked. I strongly believe this time around it would be on either "Moral Values & Determination". Could be comment on this. Thank You.

Cik Gu Nuha,

There are too many poems from Form 1 - 3. Do we need to read all te novels or only form 3 novels for PMR? Thank you.
