Raise Of Grade Application

 Dear Professor:_________________________________________Date:_______________

     My grade in __________________________ should be raised from __________
 to ______ because:

 1.  There must be a mistake somewhere.
 2.  I was not well at the time of the examination.
 3.  My mind always goes blank during an examination.
 4.  This mark ruined my prospect of getting a scholarship.
 5.  This is the only course in which I received a poor grade
 6.  This mark grieved my mother (or Father). whose pride I am.
 7.  Conditions in the room were not conductive to concentration.
 8.  The examination was unfair and unfairly distributed over the subject
 9.  I have to work after school and nights; therefore I should be
     given a break.
 10. I am married; therefore, I should be given a break.
 11. I would have done much better if I had taken the examination give
     to one of the other sections.
 12. Several people around me copied from my paper during the
     examination yet they received higher marks than I did. Surely this is
     not fair.
 13. The reason I did not do better is because I am very honest. I do
     no wish to say anything against any other members of the class.
 14. I know many of the class members who do not work as hard as I do
     an who got a better grade. I am recognized among my classmates as a
     good student - you just ask any one of them.
 15. The question were ambiguous, and therefore, my answers should be
     graded according to the reasonable interpretations that I made of your
 16. Many of the questions could not be answered with straight facts;
     they were matters of opinion. I do not believe I should be penalize
     just because my opinions differ from those of the instructor.
 17. I have studied this subject from the broad philosophical
     viewpoint and therefore, I was unable to answer your technical-based
 18. I am philosophically oriented to the realm of ideas; I respond to
     the sweep and scope of great intellects. My work is beyond the
     interest in petty details and parrot-like memorizing of those who are
     merely students
 19. At the time of the exam, I was suffering from a severe case of
     cognitive dissonance and was incapable of coping with the stress of
     the hour.
 20. It is not a higher mark I seek; I care nothing about marks; I
     think marks are wicked and I disapprove of them. However, this
     pernicious system of which I am a victim requires marks for achieving
     success and therefore, I seek a higher mark.
