You are supposed to submit a history project by 11th November. However, your sister is getting married in Hawaii at the same time. You would like an extension on the due date for submitting the project. Write to your professor. In your letter: explain the situation, remind the professor of your excellent academic record to date, ask for an extension of the due date.

Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing
letter to request you to grant an extension
the submission date of the project. The reason for asking an extension is that I need to attend an important family event, which is my elder sister's marriage. Since the wedding is arranged in Hawaii, I need to travel a few days before than I anticipated. Because of which, I will have trouble completing the history project
that is
due on 11th November. I would like to inform you about my superior academic record. I was a class topper in the
semester and won several prizes for the presentations and seminars in the workshops conducted by our university. I never missed a deadline until now.
, I was elected as a class representative in the
semester by considering my finer grades. Please consider extending the deadline for a week as
will provide me enough time to gather information and complete the assignment. I promise, I will not let you down. Kindly, accept my request and extend the due date. Yours sincerely, Vijaya Nekkanti
