Abstract

Many researches have shown that different approach needed in analysing linear and non-linear reading comprehension texts and different cognitive skills are required. This research attempts to discover the relationship between Science Stream students' reading competency on linear and non-linear texts in Malaysian University English Test (MUET) with Multiple Intelligence Theory as well as aims to reveal the prominent type of Multiple Intelligence that significantly predicts the Science Stream students' performance on the different texts of reading component. In collecting the data, the researcher used two instruments namely the Reading Comprehension of Malaysian University English Test (MUET) and Multiple Intelligence Questionnaire. The participants were 60 diploma students joining in UiTM Alor Gajah Melaka and they were chosen to represent the Science Stream group. Furthermore, the result of the correlation testing shown positive correlation of the total score in MUET reading component as well as in linear text section with Music-Rhythmic, Bodily-Kinaesthetic and Interpersonal Intelligence.
