    Please look at this

    Becky, I think you will have to go over one or two report cards. I mustsay that I am really impressed with the grades. The class’s average is veryhigh. Let's see how they will do in the British test.
    I really hope they will do as good as these report cards.

    "well" is correct but "good" is to be found quite frequently in the common lexicon.

    I'm afraid I don't understand why Gillnetter wrote "how they do in the British test" instead of "how they'll do...".
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: Please look at this

    We often use the present to refer to the future, especially after "I hope."
    I hope you have a good time.
    I hope you do well on your test.

    (I agree that "well" needs to be used. People do use "good" but I still consider this informal and not suitable for this type of writing.)


    Miss Maria Louisa - Please choose better titles for your threads. "Go over one or two report cards" would work.

    I don't know what the speaker wants Becky to do. What does "go over" mean? Change the grades?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
