MUET CALCULATIONS

1. LISTENING: 20 QUESTIONS  =  a                                (a x 45/20 = L)

2. SPEAKING: TASK A (54) + TASK B (54) / 2 = b                 (b x 45/54 = S)

3. READING: 45 QUESTIONS = c                                (c x 120/45 = R)

4. WRITING: REPORT (40) + ESSAY (60) = d                (d x 90/100 = W)

TOTAL: L + S + R + W = _______/300
