Question 3

The quality of food prepared for students in your school has become very poor. Write a letter to the principal complaining about this and explaining ways in which this situation can be remedied.


The candidate is required to write a letter to the principal of his school, complaining about the quality of food prepared for students. He is also to offer suggestions which can remedy the situation. This was a very popular question.

Attempts on this topic had two shortcomings:

  1. the writers complained more about dirty kitchens and dirty plates than about poor quality of food;
  2. the second part of the question – explanation of how to remedy the situation – was not given sufficient attention.
