My personal MUET success tips:

1) listening - try not to get more than 3 mistakes in total, listen carefully, try to share answers with friends if for some questions you are unsure about the answer(it is possible, pandai pandai lar!)

2) speaking - speak confidently, defend your answer with a logical reason, most importantly, help fellow other students when they have tied tongues (conduct the discussions with authority but not too much!)

3) reading - read naturally, with good punctuation and fluency, don't attempt to read like a Brit.

4) writing - good luck on this, I personally think that the writing task is even easier than SPM 1119, so you should have no problem if you have grammar, vocab and logics...
