I'm really frustrated because, no matter how hard I try, I cannot get good results.

Sometimes, I wonder if genetics has anything to do with my performance.

I feel unhappy, but I will keep doing my best to show that I'm as good as any other student.

My strong desire to improve sometimes scares me and drives me crazy.

Thanks for your letter, Ming-chung. It is frustrating when you try very hard and cannot do well. But don't give up, always do your best. Your hard work will pay off. Think positive - you need to be confident.

You may think that your hard work has gone to waste, but that's not true. What we learn will always enrich us and no one can take that away from us. Besides, marks are not everything. They cannot fully measure our knowledge.

Keep up the good work!
