This is how you lose 20% of your Marks

Language teachers, unlike the others, are a little more sophisticated and rigid. They do not like errors at all. They go mad on seeing too many corrections and errors. You lose marks as the teachers gets mad. To save your marks from these disciplinarians, you need to double-check the quality of your answers – before and while you write!
