Dear young minds of tomorrow,
Hi! How are you? I hope that you are fine. I have something for you to do in order to improve your previous result.
In the previous exam, you had written about one of the topics. For self- improvement, you are required to write about the four topics that you didn’t choose in the previous exam. The notes are provided. You are given 3 days to complete each essay. In other words, you are given 12 days to complete the whole assignments. Good Luck. If you wish to get the BEST result, you don’t have a choice but to give the BEST. If you fail to complete this, God and I will work closely together to teach you a lesson that you will never forget in your life. Sleeping in the class can be a habit. Obviously, GIVING THE BEST can also be a habit.
