You Have Been Invited To Attend An Interview For A Place Studying A Course In A College | Band 7.5 IELTS Letter Sample

You have been invited to attend an interview for a place studying a course in a college. Unfortunately because of a previous appointment you cannot come at the time they wish. Write a letter to the admissions tutor and explain your position. Apologize and offer to come on another day or later the same day. Ask also how long the interview will be and whether there will be any tests during it.

Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am writing to request an alternative time for my interview which is currently scheduled for 10am on 10th September. I am aware that this course is in high demand and that there are only limited spots available for this intake.

Let me explain my situation in more detail. I work full time for a Marketing Research company and this month we have an important product launch, on which we have been working hard for the past one year. I have a meeting with one of the investors at 10.15 am on the interview day and thus, it would be impossible for me to attend the course interview.

I would like to extend my sincere apologies for the trouble this may cause and would request you to move the interview to an alternative time on the same day or perhaps to another day. Additionally, I would like to know about the duration of the interview and if there would be any tests that I have to prepare for.

I thank you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely

Rashi Mathew
