Indirect Speech: My father told me that my performance had improved during the past six months, but I must improve it further.
Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the present perfect tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect tense.
Present Perfect Tense > Past Perfect Tense.
Explanation: We can keep must unchanged or we can use had to in its place.
