Sample Answer 1 (158 Words, 5 Sentences, 5 Paragraphs, Band 9)

Dear Sir,

This is to inform you that I will not be able to participate in the course program anymore due to a foreign official tour. For your kind information that I am working in Risk Management Division of Prime Bank Limited that has a subsidiary company in Hong Kong where an incident has been reported by the governing authority of the country for which I have to travel there for analyzing the whole situation, scrutiny the allegations against the company and take appropriate measures if necessary. As the whole process will take about two months or more depending on the situation I will not be able to take the final exam of the course also.

Under this circumstance, I am requesting you to transfer the course for the next semester and allow me to take the course without any further registration for the same course. Your cooperation in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
Jannatul Ferdous Hena

Sample Answer 2 (166 Words, 11 Sentences, 7 Paragraphs, Band 9)

Dear Dr. Jones,

I am writing to inform you that I no longer have a possibility to attend your evening lectures on treating emergencies.

As I told you earlier, I received a position of a nurse at the Thompson Hospital. My shift ends at 5 pm and since I have got a lot of overtime job recently, I found myself unable to be on time at your lectures, which start at 5.30 pm. This disappoints me a lot since I value and respect your course and your experience.

I would be grateful if you could consider letting me to study your course myself. Because of my job is closely related to the accidents treatment, I feel able to learn every point of the course in practice. In addition, I have already read almost every book you recommended as the supplementary reading for your lectures.

I hope to get your approval on this matter soon. I am looking forward to receiving your response.

Sincerely yours,
Robiul Hasan
