Write it right


THE Star’s Newspaper-in-Education (NiE) pullout is looking for Form Six and pre-university students to contribute essays to our Earn Your Band 6 column. The topic below is the essay question for Writing Task 2:

Topic 5 (Deadline: Today, July 26): The key to solving the problem of drink-driving lies in national education and more severe penalties to deter the act of driving under the influence. Do you agree with this statement? Discuss in not less than 350 words.

Essays should meet the Malaysian University English Test (MUET) writing criteria. Title your e-mail “Earn Your Band 6: Topic 5”, and send it to schoolstuff@thestar.com.my. Provide your full name, age, school name, MyKad number, home address and cellphone number.

Students whose essays are published for Writing Task 2 will be given certificates of recognition endorsed by Star Media Group Bhd.

Not just that, we will grade your submission using a three-star system. Get one star and take home RM50; hit two stars and walk away with RM75; clinch three stars and RM100 is yours! This applies only to Writing Task 2.

Earn Your Band 6 is aimed at improving the English proficiency of those taking the MUET. It features tips and strategies from MUET experts.

Published on Wednesdays, NiE is available only through school subscriptions of The Star. Subscribe through your school or call The Star’s Customer Care Unit at 1-300-88-7827.
