Sample Letter Format to request Principal for postponement of exam


Are you facing inability to attend your exam on date provided in date sheet? Here we are providing format using which you can write an application to the Principal of your school or college requesting to postpone your date of examination.

Life changes every moment. Sometimes we see ourselves standing on a boat in the middle of a river and situations force us to touch both banks simultaneously. Of course, this is practically impossible. We can touch only one bank at a time. Likewise, students also face such problems in their lives. Moreover, when it comes to their final examinations or even sessional examinations, they get depressed. As a student and a human being, you might have to fulfil any other urgent responsibility of your social or personal life during your exam days. It can be sudden death of a close relative, chronic health problem or any other unavoidable situation. Here we are providing a sample letter format using which you can write an application to the Principal or Head of Department of your school/ college.



How to write application to Principal/ HOD expressing your inability to attend exam on said date



Date- 09.10.2018


To,
The Principal,
ABC School,
XYZ City

Subject: Request to postpone my English exam

Respected Sir/ Madam,
I, (your name), am a student of Class X in your school. My English exam is scheduled to be held on (date). But I have to take my father to hospital for his (health problem). Appointment was taken a month ago and cannot be postponed, as no date is free with the doctor for next 3 months. We cannot delay his test as it is very much urgent. I am only child of my parents and nobody else in the family can fulfil this responsibility. Therefore, I request you to postpone my exam. I shall attend the exam on any other date as decided by you.

Hope you will understand my problem and allow me to skip my English exam on said date.

Thanking you.

Your sincerely,
(Your Name)

Another format can be as mentioned here.

Date- 07 Sep. 18

To,
The Head of Department of Commerce,
ABC College,
XYZ City

Subject: Request to postpone my exam

Respected Sir/ Madam,
I, (your name), am a student of Class X in your college. I have lost my mother yesterday. My sessional exam of Business Studies is scheduled to be held on day after tomorrow, i.e. on 09 September 2018. But I am unable to attend it on the same day, as we have to go to Haridwar to perform certain rituals. I am the only one who has to perform all rituals. Hence I request you to allow me to give my exam later on any other date. I shall follow the date sheet strictly for all other exams.

Thanking you.

Your sincerely,
(Your Name)
