Nature of Complaint

The responses can be mentioned by the school principals under ‘question deemed out of Syllabus’ or ‘beyond the comprehension level’ or under ‘defective formation of questions’ category. A category for ‘faulty translation’ is also there & other feedbacks can be specified with relevant details.
