It is worrying to read reports in the newspaper stating how some students are depressed due to exam
pressure. Some students burn the midnight oil and tire themselves out so they can ace their examinations.
The constant pressure from parents and the society did not help to resolve the issue. I am worried that our
students will be just drones who produce strings of good results but lack soft skills and have inability to
socialize well. It shows the emphasis on the amount of competition that is now becoming unhealthy.

The Leatherback Turtles


Terengganu is once again become one of the favourite tourist attractions since the leatherback
turtle has made a surprise return to nest in Rantau Abang Beach. During the recent nesting, workers from
the state’s Turtle and Marine Ecosystem Centre managed to recover 40 eggs.
The species have been around for the past 75 million years and have survived cycle of near
extinction. In the 1550s, up to 10,000 female turtles would lay their eggs in Rantau Abang Beach yearly.
However, by the 1980s, the number had fallen to 800. According to one of the Ecosystem Centre workers,
pollution and over-fishing have been the causes for the decrease in the number of female turtles coming to
this beach to nest.
Another problem is the general decrease in the population of the leatherbacks, causing them to be
classified as an endangered species. A lot of eggs are poached by the locals who sell them illegally in the
nearby markets. Therefore, the respective authorities have banned the sale of leatherback turtle eggs in the
state. Besides that, since year 2000 a lot of eggs did not hatch because they were infertile. This is because
very few male leatherbacks come to the beach so most of the eggs do not get fertilised.
To overcome this problem, Malaysian scientists are planning to use advanced reproductive
biotechnology to fertilise the eggs. They will use the semen from the green turtles and try to fertilise the
leatherback eggs in order to get new hatching. Another method being studied in the biotechnology
programme is cloning.
Terengganu’s beaches are also landing sites for the Olive Ridley and Hawksbill, both belonging
to the species of green turtles.

Questions 26 – 31 are based on the following passage.

1 On my way home from school one day, I saw a student from my class walking ahead
of me. His name was Ken. He was one of those students who never mixed around and
was always being teased for his ‘nerdy’ appearance. It looked like he had emptied his
locker and was carrying all his books home. I thought to myself, ‘Why would anyone
bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.’ 5
2 As I continued walking, I saw a few students deliberately running towards him.
They knocked him over and sent his books scattering on the muddy ground. His
spectacles went flying, and when he looked up I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes.
My heart went out to him. So, I went over to him and as he crawled around looking
for his glasses, I saw a tear in his eye. 10
3 As I handed him his spectacles, I said, ‘Those guys are jerks. Let me help you.’
4 He looked at me and said, ‘Hey thanks!’ There was a big smile on his face.
5 It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his
books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me. We talked
all the way home, and I carried his books. He turned out to be a nice guy. We hung 15
out all weekend and the more I got to know Ken, the more I liked him.
6 Monday morning came, and there was Ken with the huge stack of books again. I
stopped him and said, ‘Are you planning to build some serious muscles by lugging
this pile of books every day?’ He just laughed and handed me half the books.
7 Over the next four years, Ken and I became best friends. When we finished 20
school, we both went on to different universities. When Ken completed his medical
studies, he invited me for his graduation. He had been selected to give a speech on
behalf of the students and he wanted me to be present.
8 On graduation day, I saw Ken. He looked great. He was one of those guys that
really found himself after high school. He seemed more confident and actually 25
looked good in glasses. And judging by the people around him, he had become one
of the most popular guys on campus.
9 As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began. ‘Graduation is a time
to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years - your parents,
your teachers, your siblings, but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that 30
being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a
story.’
10 I just looked at my friend with incredulity as he told the story of the first day we
met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had
cleaned out his locker so that no one would have to clean his clutter later. He also 35
related how he had secretly stashed his mother’s sleeping pills and how he had
planned to commit suicide.
11 I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all
about his weakest moment.
12 ‘But that afternoon I unexpectedly met Mark. We spent some time together 40
talking and laughing. I realised at that moment that if I had killed myself, I would

9
SULIT 1119/2

have missed out on many other similar occasions that might follow.’
13 Then he turned directly to me and said, ‘So you see, my friend, when you talked
to me that day, you actually did a lot more. You saved my life.’

The Living Photograph
My small grandmother is tall there,
straight-back, white broderie anglaise shirt,
pleated skirt, flat shoes, grey bun,
a kind, old smile round her eyes.
Her big hand holds mine
white hand in black hand.
Her sharp blue eyes look her own death in the eye.

It was true after all, that look.


My tall grandmother became small.
Her back round and hunched
Her soup forgot to boil.
She went to the awful place grandmothers go
Somewhere unknown, unthinkable.

But there she is still,


In the photo with me at three,
The crinkled smile is still living, breathing.
