7G, Rainbow Colony,
19th January 2014
I am ashamed to tell you that my performance at the Terminal Examination was pretty unsatisfactory. I have failed in English and Mathematics and barely scraped through in Science, Hindi and Marathi. Only in Social Studies have I managed to secure 75%.
I know this will depress you a lot. The reason why I have fared so poorly is my overconfidence. I assumed I knew all my subjects quite well. Even while attempting the paper, I was rather casual. It was only when the teachers returned my papers after correction that I realized how careless I had been. I am guilty of having committed silly spelling errors and making hasty calculations.
All this has come as a tremendous shock to me, and I am determined that there shall be no repeat performance. I know you will be very upset, but do forgive me this time.
I assure you that I shall never let you down again.
Your loving daughter,
