Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

I am writing to request you to grant me a weekly off on Tuesday so that I can prepare for my CEI exam. I am writing the exam in June and I need extensive preparation.

As per the schedule, I have full day classes every Tuesday and evening classes on Fridays. Although I can manage Friday evening class after work, I will need a day off every Tuesday. My absence will in no way affect my work. I am ready to complete my tasks at work on the weekends.

As you know, this certification course is mandatory for my work profile. If I receive it, our company will also benefit. As an IT company, our consultants should be CEI certified to work in Singapore. Therefore, if I manage to complete this certification, our company will have one more certified consultant.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

    Hello,I will be grateful if my letter could be assessed please:

    Dear Sir,

    Following my enrollment in the computer literacy qualification, I am writing to request for some time off at work in order to complete the course. This is so due to exams that are scheduled this week.

    However, I will be compensating for these time off the following week in order to catch up with the pending works. I will be available to work two additional hours daily to complete the remaining tasks.

    Please note that this qualification is of high importance to me to grow in my career because it will increase my potential in the technology field as well as using the software in a better way to optimize my working performance. This will hence give a rise in my level of confidence, thereby, being a good aspect for the company prospect.

    I will be very grateful if you could consider this request.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Yours faithfully,

    Vani Manikkam
