Dear Sir

RE: Academic Appeal

With this letter, I am writing to appeal against the ‘E’ grade I received for my project paper entitled ‘Culturing a New Species’ dated August 21, 2010.

I would like to state in this letter that I had encountered a few hindrances to complete my project which delayed my submission on the required deadline of August 10, 2010. Firstly, the Agricultural Ministry did not get back to me soon enough to research on their products through interviews.

Secondly, my culture sample did not grow as per the given timeframe. Hence, I was unable to draw much conclusion on my samples in my project.

I would like to appeal for a resubmission and re-mark of my project as my samples showed results over the last week and I am able to make some scientific conclusions.

I thank you for your kind understanding and hope that I will hear from you favorably.

Yours sincerely

Wanda E. Romero
