    Let's start with the last one first. Rephrase those sentences so they are written the right way, and I will tell you if you got them right.

    Re: Please check my essay and point out the errors thanks.

    Unfortunately, you only got the first one right.

    For the second one, say:

    My father wants me to join his company after I graduate from college.

    For the third one, say:

    By obeying the speed limit we can save energy, save lives, and save money.

    For the fourth one, say:

    My friends and I are all doing the same work.

    For the fifth one, say:

    Because my country is located in a subtropical area, the weather is hot.

    We don't need change/correct the whole phrase. If we do, we get no marks. The sentence has one grammatical error and we need find that error and correct it.

    To come into line with. - I can guess what this means, but it's not a phrase I'd ever use
    To mind on and one's p's and q's - Have you copied this correctly??
    Based on this, I'd fail this exam.
    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.

    No- it should be to mind one's p's and q's, meaning to mind your manners.

    Reproducing entire exam papers could be a breach of copyright. This site is hosted in the UK, where the rules on such things are strict.

    Re: Please check my essay and point out the errors thanks.

    - I don't think we can help you with Q3 and Q4 simply because there's no way of knowing what they could ask in those! The best you can do is to learn all what came up before in the past papers you can get hold of.
    - I suggest you post your answers to sentences from Q6 in the Ask a Teacher sub-forum.
    - For Q2, you can write letters and post them to the Letter Writing sub-forum.
    - That leaves Q1 and Q5. I suggest that you start with Q5 and post some individual paragraphs on this sub-forum. After that, you should be in a better position to tackle Q6.
