    How to write a letter
    On Extenuating circumstances
    For what? You have yo explain how your situation (such as your health condition) affected your ability to study. You usually need medical evidence if you're claiming it's because of a medical condition.

    How to write a letter
    On Extenuating circumstances
    It depends who you're writing it to - a university, your teacher, student finance etc.

    But generally, you'd explain what the letter is about. Then you'd say what happened. Then you'd say the effect this had. Then you'd tell them what evidence you've included with the letter. Then you'd sign off.

    So something like:

    Dear Mrs Santa,

    I am writing to you to explain the issues I experienced during my recent course "Merry Christmas". I believe that these caused significant problems to my learning, and would like to claim extenuating circumstances.
    On December 20th, I got stuck up the chimney when practising my speed present dropping technique. This caused significant injury, and I was diagnosed with a subungual hematoma at Ho Ho Hospital. This injury meant that I was unable to wrap presents effectively and I struggled to control Rudolph.
    I have enclosed a copy of my medical report, and a statement from the class teacher.
    I hope that this letter is sufficient to explain my circumstances. If you need any further information, please contact me on 319 5272680.
    Lots of love,
