I was delighted to find your letter in my mailbox, but my joy soon turned into despair. What happened to you, my boy? Why do you want to drop out? Your decision of dropping out is beyond my understanding.
I had a chance talking with your class teacher last week and she was praising your sincerity and commitment for studies. She also told me that you are one of the most brilliant students in the class. So I was shocked to read in your letter that you didn’t want to take the examination because you weren’t well-prepared. To get a better understanding of the situation, I called your friends and they also told me that you have been burning the midnight oil for two months.
I guess you have developed some misconceptions about your skills and preparation. You also seem to be in the grip of anxiety. Boy, you are underestimating your calibre. Give up this fear of failure and take the exams with confidence. I’m quite sure that you will come off with flying colours.
Looking forward to see you soon.
