Formula to obtain desired MUET Grade/Band.

Band 1 -  Just sit for all papers and do nothing.
Band 2 -  Aim for at least 40% grade for all papers.  Example : Listening 15/45, Speaking 15/45
                Reading 50/120 and Writing 40/90 , 15 +16+35+35 =  101 (Band 2)
Band 3 -  Set a target  for at least 50% Score for each paper. Example : 22 + 22 + 60 + 45 = 149
Band 4-   Obtain at least   Reading 90 + Writing 50 + Listening 25 and Speaking 25 = 190
Band 5     You have to achieve at least 100 for your reading( not impossible) + Listening 35 +                              Speaking 30 and Writing 60 = 220
Band 6      Keep dreaming...
