Application for not Attending School Exam

The Principal,

It is humbly requested that a road accident happened to last month. Due to that, I had to spend almost 28 days in hospital as my right knee was fractured. My all family members were extremely worried about me. That is why; they completely forgot to inform you about this mishap. During this, you know, my first term exams were to be conducted in school. The first term is always important for the students as they come to know about patterns and other things related to exams.

This is no doubt a significant loss to my studies. Due to all this, my name has been delisted from school. Now I request you after coming to know about the situation, to enlist my name in school. You know well that I have been a well-rounded, and hardworking student. My academic career has always been in plus points. That is why I am in the good books of all my teachers.

So please include my name so that I may continue my studies in the future.

Your well-wisher,


Apology Letter for not attending Exam in College

British Council
65 Mozang Road, Lahore

Dear Sir,

It informed me that I have been assigned to take an O-level (Physics) examination from British Council on (Date) at Garrison Hall. I have taken all previous exams without any problem. As a matter of fact, I have been suffering from cardiac disease since the early days of my life. As I felt severe pain in my heart at the start of this month, Therefore, I decided to visit the doctor. After my checkup, the doctor suggested cardiac surgery within one day in order to avoid dangerous health loss.

Without any further delay, I decided to go for an operation. After a successful surgery, the doctor had given four weeks of complete bed rest. That is why, I will not be able to take the last exam on upcoming Monday. So, I request you to accept my apology and arrange an alternative exam day/paper day, and supervisor for the exam.

Best Regards
