Write a letter to your Principal asking for a postponement of the half-yearly examination. Give reasons for the same.
XYZ Senior Secondary School
I very respectfully submit to you the feelings of the students of the school as well as my own feeling for the postponement of the half-yearly examination.
You know, Sir, that we had our athletic meet in the month of November. We could hardly devote any time to studies for a week. Then came the communal riots. The school was closed for two weeks.
Sir, if the examination starts as scheduled, most of the students will not be able to do well in this examination. Therefore, I request you on behalf of the students to postpone the examination till the reopening of the school after the winter break.
I hope you will consider our request sympathetically.
