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
How Dalat Got Its Name
Paper 2: Section A and C
Description of an event
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!
The event kicked off at 8.00 a.m. All the students and many parents were already gathered around the field. The president of the Parent-Teacher Association officiated the opening ceremony. Then we had the march past. The school band led the march past. Members of the various school societies, uniformed bodies and clubs also took part. The students marched steadily past us in neat rows. They looked smart and patriotic.
After the march past, we had the raising of the flag by the head prefect, Azlan Hashim. The school band played the National Anthem as the flag was raised. Then, we sang several patriotic songs. Even the parents participated.
This was followed by some cultural shows performed on stage erected at one end of the field. There were traditional dances performed by the students. Their costumes were beautiful and the performances were excellent. The students had clearly put in a great of practice. Their efforts paid off well as all the dance steps were brilliantly executed.
The last event that morning was the rhythmic gymnastics performed by the Gymnasts Club. They were very talented and executed a skilful presentation with music, ribbons and hoops. It was very exciting to watch them bend their bodies so effortlessly. Dressed in colourful costumes, they also demonstrated a good sense of timing. The gymnasts managed to throw and catch their apparatus in time. It was an exciting floor show.
