Sub: Introduction of Biology
As a former student of the school, I request you to introduce Biology as one of the subjects in our school in senior secondary classes. Our school has excellent facilities for physics and chemistry, but there is no provision for the learning of Biology.
Biology is a very important subject for the students who have to seek admission in MBBS course. Since we do not have this particular subject in the senior secondary classes, our students will always have a major drawback if they want to compete for the Entrance Test leading to admission in MBBS course. Private coaching is no substitute for regular classes. In the present competition oriented times, where professionalism is the order of the day, it becomes imperative to have thorough knowledge in the field where one’s interest lies.
If the subject of Biology is introduced in our school, it will prevent unnecessary inconvenience to students who have to migrate to other schools after passing the tenth standard for want of their desired subject.
I am optimistic to hear a positive response in this matter from you at the earliest.
Q.2. You are Rajat Mittal of Sarvodaya Academy Senior Secondary School, Vikas Nagar, Delhi. You do not have the facility of learning computers in your school. Stressing the need of computer learning in the modem age, write a letter to the Principal of your school requesting him to provide this facility to the students of the school.

Sub: Facility of Learning Computers
As the head boy of school, I would like to put before you a genuine need of the students. Our school is one of the leading schools in the state and famous for its academic excellence. We students, however, feel handicapped in one respect only. Our school is lacking in facility of computer education.
The need of computer education is felt nowadays by everyone. We know that the modern age is moving fast. The frontiers of knowledge are spreading fast and unfolding something new every moment. To cope with the inflow of scientific and technical data, knowledge of computers is a must. The computers play a vital role in banks, business houses, railways, airlines, science laboratories and research centres. Without effective training in computer learning, the students will not be equipped to cope with the problems they are likely to face in the forthcoming career. If we have to compete with other countries in the field of science and technology, the knowledge-of computers must be imparted at an early age.
Keeping in view the facts stated above, I request you to arrange computer learning facility in our school at the earliest.
Hope to have a favourable consideration.
Q.3. Write a letter to the Chairman, C.B.S.E. Preet Vihar, requesting him to reduce the number of paragraphs for reading skills because an average student fails to complete the paper within the prescribed time-limit.

Sub: Reduction in Number of Paragraphs for Reading Skills
I agree with the maxim that exams are the test of one’s knowledge, skill and ability. But I am not in favour of the number of paragraphs set for reading comprehension and note¬making. These passages tend to be tedious and boring. The students have to spend more time to read, analyse and understand them and answer the questions. The result is that students fail to complete the paper within the prescribed time limit. Thus these passages harass the students. They do not relish writing answers to them.
In view of the poor performance of the students in reading skills, I request you, sir, to consider the case of reducing the number of paragraphs for reading skills. I am confident that two passages of shorter lengths will unable students to give better performance. Hope to have a favourable consideration.
Q.4. Write a letter to the Chairman CBSE with suggestions to make the curriculum of SUPW (Socially Useful Productive Work) effective for real life.

Sub: Curriculum of SUPW
The curriculum of SUPW (Socially Useful Productive Work) is quite vast and contains many interesting and useful activities. The choice of subjects/projects has been left to the institutions. This has led to a very disturbing state. Many schools have no provision or facilities for the hobbies/subjects introduced for the senior secondary classes. There is no field work or practical participation of students. These periods are reduced to one-way lectures only. The students are so disillusioned that they call SUPW as ‘some useful periods wasted’. It will be better to prescribe a limited number of crafts/hobbies suiting the local conditions and availability of raw material.
Please try to make the curriculum of SUPW relevant and effective for real life.
Q.5. You are Mohnish/Mahima Oswal, parent of a student of class 10th. Write a letter to the Principal, Excellent Academy, 25 Model Town, Hisar, requesting him to open a career counselling centre in the school to help and guide the students in the choice of subjects at + 2 level as well as at college level and to give other valuable advice/suggestions.

Sub: Request to open a career counselling centre
My son, Anuj, is a student of class X in your school and is currently appearing in the Board examination. Very soon, he and other students of his class will have to make an important decision. They will have to select the stream/subjects they should opt for at the +2 level. As you know, this is the most crucial decision of a student’s life. Most of the parents are unaware of the latest trends in educational/job fields. I, therefore, request you to kindly open a career counselling centre in your school to help your students make the correct choice according to their aptitudes/talents as well as future job prospects. Expert guidance in the field will prove invaluable to the young students.
I hope you will consider my request favourably.
With regards and best wishes.
Q.6. You are Rajat/Rajani Walia, Head Boy/Girl of your school. Request your Principal in writing to arrange extra classes in Maths for the students of XI and XII classes. Give detailed reasons to support your demand.

Sub: Extra Classes in Maths
The other day we were admonished about poor performance in Maths in the Pre-Board Examination. We have tried to search our souls, rack our brains and find out the fault. The reason is quite obvions. Our Maths lecturer retired in August and stop-gap arrangements were made for three months by appointing temporary hands. Only last month we were
able to get the guidance from an expert and competent teacher like Mr. B.M. Garg. However, a lot of our course remains uncovered and proper justice cannot be done to it in the regular periods only.
Moreover, we have to make up our deficiency. Drill, revision and classroom tests also require certain periods. In view of the paucity of time available to us between now and the commencement of board examination, it is requested that some extra classes before/after school hours be arranged in Maths for XI and XII classes.
I hope that the request of the students will be acceded to without any delay.
