SPM 2015 EST (English For Science And Technology) and More

Random 2021 Update: 

Guyssss be sure to check out the links way down below to have a look at sample essays, questions and full length test papers. To be honest, looking at the 2015 Paper 2 is pretty useless. Anyways, good luck! The suffering will soon pay off!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Back to the original blog post: 

Hey guys! This is the actual EST Paper 2 that I sat for last year (SPM 2015). Do try it out! As you guys might already know, Paper 1 is sent directly to the examiner, hence I couldn’t get my hands on the paper. However, the essay question was: Write a report on Global Warming. Basically, there was a diagram that depicted the causes of global warming (ie. Cars, factories, aerosol sprays). I don’t remember the other pictures but it was definitely related to global warming. Unlike other years, there was no written text to guide you with the points of your report, only pictures. As I remember, I wrote about the causes and the ways to reduce global warming. Oh by the way, I managed to obtain an A+ in EST. Without a shadow of a doubt, EST is a subject that every Science Stream student should consider taking since very minimal effort is needed to get an A+ in this subject. No textbooks, no exercise books, no teachers, absolutely nothing at all is a prerequisite to ace EST!! Click the link right below to check out the paper!

  1. Hello there, is there any possible ways i can contact you regarding EST? I am taking EST now, but i m rather nervous and afraid that it will ruin my results. Hope to hear from you soon. Do email me if anything , much appreciated! Thanks

    • Hey Rowin! Thanks for the comment! There is absolutely no need to feel anxious about EST unless you aim to get a clean sweep of straight A+’s, in which taking EST could very well backfire as many candidates end up scoring A’s and A-‘s in this subject. In my school, there were just 2 candidates (my friend and I), but we both managed to score an A and A+ respectively without having a single lesson in EST. Fundamentally, it is highly likely that you could get away with an A-/A/A+ in EST if your English is pretty decent. The question you’ve got to ask yourself is “do you think an A- (at the very least) in EST would ruin your results slip?” Feel free to email me at spmest98@gmail.com if you have any additional questions with regard to EST. Cheers mate! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Hi there, Kenneth! I’m about to take my EST exam next year and I’m also drastically need to know some EST sample essays. I wanted to get a head start on this subject so that I wouldn’t procrastinate when the exam is just around the corner. I did buy the textbook but there are so many essay formats and I didn’t know which one to use???… I’m also wondering where did you purchased your EST question book, I’ve searched almost every bookstores and they said it wasn’t available anymore. I think I’m gone bananas searching for the book. Please reply ASAP, thank u very much!

    • Hey Fariz! My apologies for the late reply. I will email you some sample essays with the correct format in around 2 weeks as my EST past year questions book is at my home (I’m in a boarding college so I’ll be returning home after 2 weeks). For EST, the workbooks are not very useful as they all have varying formats, so the past year book would be your best bet to find out the actual format of answering questions. Btw, the essay format as shown in the textbook looks outdated and it varies from page to page, so I wouldn’t put all my trust in the textbook. Will get back to you in a fortnight! Cheers mate! โœŒ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ

    • Hey Tai! It is almost impossible to obtain past year papers for EST. The subject is literally obsolete and there is only a handful of books out there (especially past year papers). There is a link to some past year papers in this blog post, but finding the complete set of papers is a tough job. Good luck! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

  8. Hi Kenneth! I am the only EST candidate in my district. No books, no teachers. no tests to see my progress. Could you send a few of your essays? I literally have no idea on what I have to read. Paper 2 is a piece of cake but I find the essay writing in Paper 1 very hard. Do send the essays to my email. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hey there Kenneth!๐Ÿ˜Š
    I’m Amiera. I am currently taking EST this year for my SPM. My parents and friends support me in taking it but my teachers don’t seem to be on the same page๐Ÿ˜”. I really want to take it. Not just because I am passionate about english but also since I think it’s such a waste for an engineering science student like me to not take it. My teachers including the headmistress told me several reasons why I should not take EST:
    1. EST would not help me in getting into english or engineering related courses.(English 1119 is enough,they said)
    2. It would burden the school and the teachers because I’m the only one in my school and GOMBAK to be taking EST.
    3. No teachers or tuitions to educate me. (My class teacher had experience teaching it but she still doesn’t encourage me to take it)
    4.The school is afraid I will not get a good enough grade for it and it might effect the school even though they know my english is excellent.
    Even with all these reasons spinning in my head, my heart still tells me I should take it because it interests me. EST also somehow encourages me to improve my other 10 subject so that I can get straight A’s. Even if the whole world is against me I still want to take it. If I can believe in myself,why can’t my teachers๐Ÿ˜“? I just know I can do it by studying by myself.๐Ÿค“

    So what I want to ask is what can I say to my teachers so that they’ll give me the chance to take EST. And will I be able to at least get an A- by myself with only a textbook and minimal amount of exercises??

    It would mean the world to me if you would reply soon. I understand if you’re busy though.
    P.S. sorry if this is too long or overly exaggerating๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    • I appreciate the enthusiasm you have there! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I hate to say it, but your teachers sound really petty and foolish. They are the perfect embodiment of Malaysiaโ€™s falling education system, where teachers kill off the passion and desire of bright students like you. And youโ€™re right, EST shouldnโ€™t be wasted, I know so many people who obtained A+โ€™s from SPM 2017 and they did it without any teachers, tuition or books. Just tell your class teacher that youโ€™ve found an EST tutor, fake the signature of the this โ€˜EST tutorโ€™ of yours and send the borang pendaftaran subjeck back to your teacher (this is exactly what I did). Iโ€™m sure youโ€™d be able to BS your way around this whole thing. On your part right now, just keep on delivering great grades especially in English and take it from there. With regards to the A- bit, you can get an A/A+ without any textbooks and exercises to be frank. Having a textbook is useless, the essay formats are outdated, just use it for increasing your vocabulary. Just get familiar with the formatting and youโ€™re absolutely good to go! If you are still bent on actually having a tutor, I have the contact number of an active EST tutor in the Petaling Jaya vicinity, hit me up via email if youโ€™re interested. May the odds be with you Amiera! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

    • Hey there! Definitely consider that option, but also keep in mind that the grade boundary for an A/A+ in SPM Physics is also really low. Whether youโ€™re doing great or not so great in Physics shouldnโ€™t be a major factor in your decision to sign up for EST. Think of EST as a bonus rather than a replacement for a subject like Physics. In the meantime, you need to go absolutely all out in Physics and only start thinking about EST a little later down the line. Good luck! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
