  1. Hello sir
    Its is fine to use word like responsible,honest,hardworking as you have used or we have to express them by our written action… It is fine to use these word for expressing our qualities?

    • Don’t bother to state any opinion which you consider as wrong. Some of my relations used to consider me as a ‘loner’ & not a ‘team-player’. I never believed it or did anything about this misconception!

  2. Hello sir,
    Glad to see your works in helping the aspirants.
    Sir, under : what I would like to improve can I state ex. Short tempered and also state the measures Im taking to handle it.

  3. Sir, I have shown this Sample SD to a psychologist. In the “Aspect, I like to improve” paragraph the statement which says I have not done justice to my academic potential and resolved to improve it now shows regret and feeling regretted of past mistakes has no sense. It should be directly written that I would improve my scores and put my best efforts in my further qualifications.
