Sample Reasons (with targeted marks)
Passing Mark

Level 1
I would go to Grandparents
house because the place is
Sarawak. The type of house is a
longhouse. The location is near
the river. The activities are jungle
trekking and collecting fruits
from the orchard.

Level 3 (1)
I would go to an aunts house
because I have never been to an
aunts house before. My aunt is
staying in Pulau Pinang. Her
house is an apartment in the city.
I want to learn more about Pulau
Pinang.
I can play computer games
with my cousins as I love to play
computer games.
I can also swim in the pool
with my cousins as I want to
learn swimming. My aunt can
teach me how to swim as she is a
swimming champion. I think this
is the best place for me.

Level 3 (2)
I would go to Grandparents house in
Sarawak because it would be nice to
experience a different lifestyle away from
the noisy polluted city and my same old
routine.
My caring grandparents reside in a
wooden longhouse near the river. Therefore
I hope to meet many people and also get a
chance to bathe in the cool river water.
If I do stay there for the upcoming
school holidays, I will go jungle trekking and
who knows I may spot a Rafflesia in the
jungle.
I also hope to collect fruits from an
orchard. I have been told that it is not easy
to collect fruits from an orchard but very
rewarding because I can then enjoy the
juicy fruits.
Level 2
I would go to Grandparents
house in Sarawak because I can
sleep in the longhouse. I can
swim in the river. I can go jungle
trekking. I can eat the fruits.

Syikin comes from a very poor family. Her father is a fisherman and her mother
is a housewife. Her family has
difficulties to make ends meet. Despite all these hardships, she never gives up
on her study because she is a very
determined and diligent girl. She scored 5As in the UPSR examination. She was als
o selected as the best pupil at the
national level.
Her parents were very happy and proud of her achievement. They knew she would
have a better future than
them. The teachers at Syikins school were happy and proud that she had brought re
cognition to the school.
Everyone who knew her congratulated her success.
At a special ceremony, the state government presented Syikin with a laptop and
RM1000 for her outstanding
achievement. She was also offered a scholarship to continue her education. A top
boarding school in the country
had accepted her.
Syikin was grateful to God that her hard work had brought success. Her parents
did not need to worry about
her future any more. She realised that one will succeed in life if one does not
give up easily, just like the saying If

theres a will, theres a way.

As the two good friends Ina and Mimi played a
challenging game of congkak in Inas house, the shrill
sound of the house bell interrupted their game.
When Mimi got up and looked out of the window,
she caught sight of the ice-cream man and his
motorcycle. A few children had already crowded around
him, asking for different varieties of ice-cream. Mimis
eyes wandered over to a girl standing at one side. She
was clothed in what seemed to be dirty rags, and it was
obvious that she had no money to buy an ice-cream. Mimi
immediately felt a surge of pity for her. She quickly
beckoned Ina to follow her outside.
Mimi and Ina bought themselves each an ice-cream
and one more for the girl. They made their way to the
solemn looking girl. Mimi handed the extra ice-cream to
her. In a split second, a wide grin spread out on the
girls face. She thanked Mimi and Ina quickly, savouring
the taste of her ice-cream. Mimi and Ina felt proud for
helping the girl and then bade her goodbye.
Level 3
One day, Zahira was in the living room playing
congkak with her best friend. Suddenly, a loud bell made
them almost jump out of their skin.
Zahira went to the window and looked out. It was
the ice-cream truck! The ice cream man was there and as
usual, many children were waiting to buy an ice-cream.

Suddenly Zahira caught sight of a girl. She was dressed


in ragged clothes and was looking longingly at the icecreams. Zahira then got angry at the ignorance of the
other children about the poor girl. Her heart went out to
her. She then decided to take some money and buy her
an ice-cream.
She bought three ice-creams; one for herself, one
for her friend, and one for the poor girl. The girl was so
happy and thanked Zahira for the ice-cream. Then, the girl
ran back home. The incident took place six weeks ago but
was still clear in her mind and she never regretted
learning the meaning of kindness.
