Respected Teacher,

With due respect it is stated that I, sender’s name, am a senior at your high school. Due to some reasons I have failed one of my recent mock tests. I plead you to give me another chance to reappear in the tests so that I will be able ti improve my grade.

I am suffering from a very high fever for almost week. During my mock test, I accidentally fell asleep due to extreme fatigue. I woke up when the invigilator was collecting the exams. More than half of my paper was left unanswered. I apologies for such a mistake but I assure you that I was very sick at the moment.

As a senior ,my internal grades are very important. As these would be sent to universities and colleges I will applying for admissions. Such a result will badly reflect my overall performance. Hence please consider my request and allow me to retake this specific test.

I have attached my medical certificate as well as my past grades to assure you that it was just a grave mistake from my part.

Yours Sincerely,

Respected Teacher,

I , student’s name (mention student ID), am a Phd. student at your University. Recently, I failed my main course exam due to some unforeseen reasons and I plead you to let me reappear in the course exam so that I can improve my grade and complete my PhD on time.

My family background is very unprivileged. All my life I have studied using scholarships, financial aids and students loans. My father recently retired from his government job and his pension is unfortunately not enough for the whole family. I need to complete my education as soon as possible in order to provide for my family.

If I am not given a chance to reappear in the course exam I will have to spend one more semester in the University. My financial aid does not apply to extra semesters. I do not wish to be a burden to my family anymore. I hope that you will understand my critical situation and grant me a chance of retaking my exam.

I shall be forever grateful to you if you give me this chance. Hoping for a positive response from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Sender’s Name,
