"I am writing to let you know that we're gratified with Hannah's good performance in the school's recent mock exam writing practice, the SA1 Paper 1 composition, and the Paper 2 comprehension. For the two writing practices, she scored 37 and 38 marks out of 40 marks. She also attained the highest band in language use and second highest in content for SA1. Many thanks to her TWC teacher's patient teaching, guidance, and constructive feedback!
