Model Answer 1:

Dear Madam,

I am writing in connection with my need to return to my home country owing to my sister's marriage ceremony. Since the function has been fixed on 22nd of next month. I have to go to my country to attend the function. So I request you to permit me to take one week leave from 17th of July.

Inevitably, shopping and some important rituals are to be taken care by me and therefore my family members and relatives are inviting me to arrive little earlier. I am quite aware that I have my semester exams on 30th of July and I assure you that my travel would no way affect my studies. In fact, I have prepared all the subjects well in advance so I could succeed in the assessment with good score.

I would be grateful if you could approve my leave and pray for my sister.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Sample Answer 2:

Dear Sir,

I am writing to request a time off, so as to ensure my presence in a family event taking place in my home country next month. I apologize for all the inconveniences caused, henceforth.

As you are aware, I am pursuing my graduation in Computer Science, at your college and that it is the beginning of last semester which focused on the thesis part which I believe is focused on personnel preparations rather than study classes. It would be held in high regards if you could allow me a short vacation starting from 1st of September to 15th of same month, this year.

Please note that my sister’s wedding is planned on 5th of next month and for being the only elder sibling, major responsibility rests on my shoulders to precede and conduct the function in a well-appreciated manner.  My presence at the place is eminent rather inevitable.

Furthermore, I can assure you about my rejoining date as 15th of September.  It is almost certain that after beholding the functions and post marriage formalities, I can fly my way back within two weeks time. Finally, I pledge to you that, this short period of time, by no means, will hinder with my preparation for the final year exams. I am quite keen about this and hereby reassure you that my studies will not suffer in the whole process.

Thanking you
