September 7, 2007.
I received your letter yesterday. I am glad to know that you are proceeding for ‘Umra’ next month. You have enquired about my December Test results. I am afraid, this time I could not live up to your expectations. I have got less than seventy percent marks. I do admit that it is a very low score for a pre-engineering student. I got the first position in the subjects of Chemistry and Urdu, but I could not do well in Mathematics and Physics. My score in these subjects is less than sixty-five percent. The reason for poor performance in these subjects was mine overconfidence. In the last test, I had got ninety-five percent marks in Physics and Maths. I thought that these were my favourite subject and I could repeat the same performance with very little efforts. So I did not prepare them well. Dear father, I confess that I Have suffered because of misplanning. Now I have decided not to take any subject easy. I have rescheduled my study hours and I shall given proper time and attention to each and every subject. Hopefully, next time I shall show better results. Convey my regards to mother, Jawad and Salma. With affectionate regards.
