    Dear Rahayu,

    You can only excel in answering the literature section through reading and understanding of the literary text. Plus, there are techniques in answering the questions that you have to abide to.

    Firstly, highlight all the key words in the rubric (question). Understand what does the question want you to do. For eg:

    Write about the value of courage in the novel that you have read. The key words are ‘value’, ‘courage’. So you ought to focus on the value of courage as potrayed by the characters. You MUST support your answers with textual evidence.

    What if you are asked to write about the value of courage learnt from the novel that has made you a better person? This kind of question is tricky as it requires you to answer two things simultaneously. The key words are ‘value’, ‘courage’ and ‘you a better person’. In this case, you have to mention the incidents in the novel that potray the value of courage. Provide textual evidence, and most importantly, tie up your answer with how this has made you a better person. For instance, Raoul risked his life to save Christine from the Phantom, even though he knew that his life was in jeopardy. He had to face the challenges in the Torture Chamber because he was determined to save Christine. Christine was Raoul’s love interest, that was why he was willing to save her. From this, I have learnt that I should be courageous to save my loved ones. My courageous effort is the manifestation of my true love.

    There is no short cut to be proficient in English. It is all about practise, continuously. Even I am learning new things in English everyday. The golden rule is to read, speak and write. Plus, you need to have a good dictionary for you to refer to.

    Good Luck for the coming PMR. English is Fun!
