Dear Mr. Mrs/

I recently received a failing grade in my English class. I take full responsibility for the overall grade at the end of the semester because I am fully aware that my scores during the class were very low. I write this letter of appeal to explain my case and hopefully be given a second chance at starting over the class. Several reasons triggered my low grades and I am taking this opportunity to explain the causes.

During the duration of the class, a family member got sick and passed away and this affected me in several ways. For instance, my emotional well-being was affected because for the most part of that semester, I was in shock and in the grieving stage. Therefore, I could not fully concentrate on my classes and this led to negligence on my part. Secondly, the family member was an integral part of my family because he was responsible for paying a significant amount of bills. After losing him I had to fill in the gap by taking up a part-time job. It quickly made the situation worse because I was grieving and at the same time trying to adjust to a new routine. It is during this process that I scored low grades and ended up failing the class.

A substantial amount of time has passed since the loss and therefore, I have managed to go through the grieving process. As of now, I am certain I have the right frame of mind to take part in the class again. Additionally, I have since adjusted to the new schedule and I can comfortably handle a part-time job and an online class. Nothing is more important to me than graduating and I plan to make my schoolwork a priority.

I hereby request a chance to redo the class this semester. If given a second chance, I am certain I would do a great job and eventually pass the English class. I look forward to a response and I hope that you will consider my request.

Sincerely,

Your Name
