During my time, the internet has just started to emerge. Our first social media at that time was Friendster. Gosh, that was such long time ago. We were so happy and blessed to be able to search for any little information available on the world wide web (www).
You know, at that time, even the computer is quite scarce to be found in each household. I’m lucky enough to stay in one of the top science boarding school in Malaysia where the school was equipped with the best and latest technology, “desktop”, available to be used at the library and foyer.
Fast forward to this day, I can say, most of the household in Malaysia have a computer, if not, a smart phone at the very least. Since the pandemic hit, the government and non-governmental agencies, NGOs, vigorously give out free tablet to all students that came from low-income families.
This effort should be praised as the Ministry of Education’s main objective is “no student should be left behind”. With all the online classes, online homework, online tutoring, and everything that is done online, having a smartphone, tablet or computer has become a necessity.
So, do you know how resourceful the millennial students are getting today? Very!
You wouldn't need to worry much on where to find PT3 mock English paper, past year English paper or examination model paper as everything is available on the net. However, since the resource available are huge, the chances that you’d go to the unverified, or non-credential site are high too. Some sites even downloaded viruses to your computer without you noticing! BEWARE!

As we know, the Standard Based Curriculum for Secondary School (KSSM) has been introduced in 2017. The changes has been made to the English Language to align with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). CEFR combines summative and formatives assessment in the construction of English PT3 paper.
You must be scared knowing that the supposedly first batch to sit for the newly changed PT3 was 2020 batch students. However, since the pandemic hit, PT3 has been cancelled for year 2020 and 2021.
This situation has made it difficult to find the true copy of actual past year paper. But you shouldn't worry much. You should be excited instead! The current format is like most of the international English Test! Check out the latest format for English PT3 2021 papers!
