Dear Father!

I am sorry to inform you that I could not perform well in my end term exams at college. I failed in English and got 343 marks overall from a total of 550 marks. Unfortunately, that's what I have to share with you.

Dear father! I know it will be bad news for you. You had high expectations of me. Please forgive me for breaking your heart. But let me explain how all this happened in a natural way.

Our English teacher changed just before the midterm exams. I could not develop much understanding of the new teacher when the final term approached. I had good preparation of all other subjects. Yet the result is contrary to my own expectations. It is because the new paper pattern was revealed just a few days before exams.

50% of the questions were conceptual questions. So, it affected the overall result of the college too. Moreover, I had some health issues during the exams. I could not prepare well. Anyhow, I was not expecting a too bad result. Perhaps the marking policy of the board has changed.

ٰWhat was to happen happened. It opened my eyes. I have set my priorities now. It gave me new energy. I will try to make up for this shortfall next year۔ I assure you that I will turn no stone unturned to get a high 1st division in final term exams.

I hope you give me a chance with an open heart. 

Your son/daughter
