Hi Everyone!! This article will share Dear Mr Examiner Questions & Answers.
Written by Gareth Owen, Dear Mr Examiner is an informal letter written by a student to the examiner in the form of a poem. It is a humourous poem that describes student’s thoughts in the examination hall when he/she is unable to write the answers of the questions.
In my previous posts, I have shared the questions & answers of Getting Ready For A Party, Beethoven and Another Chance so, you can check these posts as well.
