A sick leave letter is written to a boss, supervisor, principal or other person responsible for the attendance of employees when the employee is ill and needs to take some time off of their work to recover. Before asking for time off, the employee needs to know if he or she is entitled to the leave according to their contract, or if it is at their employer’s discretion. If they are entitled to the medical leave, they should mention this in their leave letter and, if necessary, enclose a copy of the contract where it is mentioned.

They need to submit an application, on the required form, to the scholarship committee of their choice and include a cover letter.

If the letter doesn’t impress them, they may not even look at the application form.

If a student receives a lower grade that he or she believes is unfair, they can write a grade change request letter to the professor, dean of the college or an appeals board requesting that the grade be raised. If an exam or course was graded very severely by a professor, and this standard was applied to every student in the class, a grade change will not usually be considered. Even if a professor is antagonistic towards a student, it must be proved that the antagonistic attitude resulted in a lower grade. If the student has a doubt or concern that they deserved a higher grade, but they do not know how to go forward, their best option is to talk with the chairperson of their school or college’s Grade Appeals Committee or someone in the Dean of Student’s Office.
