Dear Sir,

Request For A Special Exam.
---------------------------------

I am writing to request for a special exam for my forthcoming final exam on December.

I am unable to sit for coming my exam is because i with my family have to attend to an important prayers at 1 of the temple in India. After waiting for a few years, now only we got the chance to fulfill our prayers over there.Because its the Annual Holy prayers so we do not have the rights to change or make on our own date. We will be leaving to India during the week of exam, on Sunday, December 12 and will be return here on Sunday,19 December.

The purpose of the prayers is because we had vowed to perform one of the prayers devotions at MADUREY temple in Chennai India.As a way to pay homege, we need to make pilgrimage along a set route while have to prepare ourselves for a week in advance with an ascetic lifestyle and will undergo a period of meditation, fasting, abstinence and immerse ourselves in spiritual prayers at the temple.

I enclose the details of myself and the exam date. I would therefore be very grateful if u would permit me to make-up all my examination by grant me special exams.

Thank you very much for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.

Sincerely yours,

Sherina

Emotion: sad.... Hmmmm! pls help me to make a better letter and i want to express my request in more sentiment way.... pls do help!
I think you've done a fine job, Sherina. What I've done primarily is move the prayer trip description all into one place. I am unclear as to whether you will be missing only one examination or several, so please go through and choose the singular or plural options I have set up-- but be consistent.

Dear Sir,

Request For (A ) Special Examination(s)
---------------------------------

I am writing to request a special sitting for my forthcoming final examination(s) in December.

I am unable to sit for my coming examination(s) because I and my family must attend important religious ceremonies at MADUREY temple in Chennai, India, where we had previously vowed to perform prayer devotions. After waiting for many years, at last we have the unique chance to offer our prayers there. As a way to pay homage, we must make the pilgrimage along a set route, preparing ourselves for a week in advance with an ascetic lifestyle; we will undergo a period of meditation, fasting and abstinence, and immerse ourselves in spiritual prayer at the temple. Because it is the Annual Holy Prayers, we do not have the right to change the dates. We will be leaving for India during the examination week, on Sunday, December 12, and will return here on Sunday, December 19.

I enclose my personal details and the examination date(s). I would be very grateful if you could permit me to make up my examination(s) by granting me (a ) special sitting(s).

Thank you very much for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.

Sincerely yours,

Sherina Raman
