Latihan Soal Tes Bahasa Inggris (TBI) USM PKN STAN Tahun 2019

Untuk adik- adik yang mau melanjutkan kuliahnya di PKN STAN, inilah saat yang tepat untuk meluangkan waktu mempelajari berbagai materi yang muncul dari tahun ke tahun serta tipikal dari soal ujian masuk PKN STAN itu sendiri.

Merujuk pada soal TBI USM PKN STAN tahun 2018  yang lalu, Soal bahasa Inggris terdiri dari 30 (tiga puluh) soal dengan materi grammar (structure and written expression) dan materi reading text. Meskipun soal hanya berjumlah tiga puluh, tetapi jumlah nilai ini akan menentukan ambang lolos tidaknya adik- adik. Pada tes bahasa Inggris (TBI) PKN STAN tahun 2019, diprediksi soal akan berkutat materi yang sama yaitu structure and written expression serta reading text.

#1.  Structure and Written Expression
Bentuk soal structure and written expression membutuhkan penguasaan grammar yang baik. Soal structure and written expression ditujukan untuk menguji kemampuan adik- adik dalam mengenali formal written English.

Adapun topik yang harus dikuasai adalah tentang Gerund, Parallel Construction, Direct and Indirect Speech, Concord atau agreement, Degree of Comparison, Tenses, Participle, Clause, Causative, Subjunctive, Conditional Sentence, Elliptical sentence, Question Tag, plus materi grammar lainnya.

Berikut contoh soal structure and written expression USM PKN STAN,

A. being watched
B. watch
C. watched
D. watching
#2. Reading Comprehension
Soal teks untuk reading comprehension dalam soal- soal USM PKN STAN biasanya diambil dari berbagai sumber baik website maupun sumber lain misalnya jurnal ilmiah. Strategi menyelesaikannya sama dengan soal- soal reading lainnya yang mencakup :

1. Topik
Beberapa ciri soal yang menyatakan topik adalah sebagai berikut :

  • What is the topic of the text?
  • The topic of the test is ....
  • The text is about....
  • The text tells us about ....
  • What is the main information of the text?
  • What does the text mainly discuss?
Cara penyelesaiannya adalah sebagai berikut,
  • Cari kata atau frase yang paling sering muncul di bacaan, kemudian pilihlah jawaban yang sesuai.
  • Baca kalimat pertama dan kedua setiap paragraf, kemudian simpulkan intisarinya dan pilihlah jawaban yang sesuai. 

2. Title
Beberapa tipe soal yang menanyakan "title " atau judul bacaan adalah "What is the best title of the text above?"
Cara menyelesaikan soal- soal yang menanyakan title atau judul adalah dengan mencari pilihan jawaban (A-D) yang paling sesuai dengan jawaban.

3. Main Idea/ main  information (pikiran utama/ kalimat utama dalam paragraf)
Main idea adalah pengembangan topik bacaan, strategi menyelesaikannya adalah dengan memilih jawaban (A-D) yang sesuai dengan topik bacaan. Bila main idea bersifat tersirat, maka mencarinya dengan :

  • Untuk paragraf deduktif (umum - khusus) yaitu dengan membaca kalimat pertama, kedua dalam paragraf dan kemudian pilihlah jawaban yang sesuai.
  • Untuk paragraf induktif (khusus- umum) dengan membaca kalimat terakhir paragraf yang biasanya berupa kesimpulan, kemudian pilihlah jawaban yang sesuai.

4. Aim/ purpose the writer (tujuan utama penulis)
Untuk mengetahui tujuan utama penulis biasanya diketahui dengan membaca intisari gagasan paragraf pertama ( biasanya dinyatakan dalam kalimat 1,2) ataupun bisa dari kesimpulan bacaan (paragraf terakhir)

5. Reference (pronoun + refers to)
Kata ganti (pronoun) selalu menjelaskan kata benda yang telah disebut sebelumnya, sehingga cara mencarinya dengan membaca kata/ frase/ kalimat sebelum "pronoun" yang ditanyakan.

6. Comprehensive question ( 5W + 1 H)
Pertanyaan dengan "Comprehensive Question" biasanya mencari informasi yang sesuai dengan kata kunci dalam setiap pertanyaan. Ada beberapa penanda dalam comprehensive questions seperti pemakaian what (apa) untuk menanyakan benda, who (siapa) untuk menanyakan orang, where (dimana) untuk menanyakan tempat, when (kapan) untuk menanyakan waktu, why (mengapa) untuk menanyakan alasan, dan how (bagaimana) untuk menanayakan cara / keadaan.

7 True/ false statement
Pahamilah pilihan jawaban (A-E) satu persatu, cari pernyataan di dalam teks yang sesuai untuk mengetahui apakah pilihan jawaban tersebut benar atau salah.

8. Vocabulary.

Untuk mencari jawaban pertanyaan vocabulary (kosakata), yang pertama adalah kuasailah kosakata kemudian cocokkan kosakata tersebut yang sesuai dengan konteks kalimat pada bacaan. Biasanya pertanyaan vocabulary memiliki ciri- ciri : meaning, synonym,antonym, and word definition.
