Analysis Of PMR English Papers (2005 - 2010)

I did some analysis on the PMR English Papers from 2005 - 2010. Here are my findings.

Paper 1: Section D and E (Literature)

Life’s Brief Candle

The Dead Crow

The Lake Isle of Innisfree

Of Bunga Telur and Bally Shoes

The Pencil

How Dalat Got Its Name

Paper 2: Section A and C

Section A
(Guided Writing)
Section C
Description of an event
Moral Value
Informal letter – invitation letter
Opinion – Like/Dislike a story
Story – bad experience
Characters – Two characters who work together to obtain success
Speech – Safety measures in school
Plot – an important incident
Article – Visiting old folks home
Characters – a relationship between friends
Story – good deed
Characters – a good quality that you admire in a character

Based on the above analysis, I would like to make a forecast on what might come out in 2011's English PMR.

Paper 1: Section D - Life's Brief Candle

Paper 1: Section E - Of Bunga Telur and Bally Shoes

Paper 2: Section A - Article / Report / Recount / Speech / Talk / Letter

Paper 2: Section C - Could be anything from Plot, Theme, Moral Value, or even Characters. However, since characters had came out in 2009 & 2010, I doubt that it will be asked again this year.

Mind you, this is just a forecast. PMR candidates must do their revision in all aspects in order to succeed not only in English but also in other subjects. 

All the best!
