Letter/ email requesting retake of an exam

Subject: Letter requesting retake of an exam

Dear Prof. Hendricks,

I am Dan Sanchez from your psychology class, 10 A.M batch. Due to unexpected tragedy in my family, I am unable to attend the exam on Friday July 13, 2012. The funeral service for my uncle is on July 13 and I have to assist my family with arrangements for the same.

As per the course rules, there is always permission for retake of any missed exam if the reasons are found genuine. Therefore I request you to consider my position and grant me permission and email me a date, time and place so that I could retake the exam.

Thanks and regards,

Yours truly,

Dan Sanchez.
