    Life is full of

    Hi,

    Point out mu mistakes in the following paragraphs, please.

    ''Life is full of tests. We should face them bravely. Similarly, when a teacher gives us a test to prepare, we shouldn't be worried rather we should take it on the appointed day. We shouldn't deceive ourselves as well as our teachers by making lame excuses.''

    Well, there's the first one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Having read the above, I think 'in the test' and 'on the test' are British English and North American English respectively.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Life is full of

    @teeacher, thank you very much.

    Why is ''We should take it on the appointed day'' not correct?

    (British English) a good mark in the test
    (North American English) a good grade on the test
    What is the North American version of full marks? Full grades?

    It's just strange because students don't usually have the luxury of choosing when to take a test.
