Sample Request Letter for Extension

Subject: Letter of request for extension for submission of thesis

Respected Graduate Studies office,

I am writing this letter to request an extension in the deadline for submitting my Master thesis. The date for submission is Nov 19, 2017, but I still have some writing work pending and fear that I will not be able to complete it within the original time frame.

Kindly consider the following reasons why I could not complete my research on time: At this stage in the research we are considering filling a patent file before we submit the thesis to the external reviewer only we need few weeks. Kindly consider my personal circumstance since I got pregnant and I had some complications during that time and after the childbirth. I wasn’t in any condition to work or study and hence, was unable to do any work on my thesis during almost one year. (A medical report is attached with the form). further more, I ‘m working in a full time job which slowed me down to finish my experiment work.

Considering my problem, kindly grant me an extension of few weeks only for submitting the thesis. I assure you that I will complete and submit my thesis well before the revised deadline.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours Sincerely,

Subject: Letter of request for extension for submission of thesis

Respected Sir,

With due respect, it is to state that I am student of M. Phil and I had scored good GPA in my two semesters of theory, but now this year is my thesis year and the date for submission for the thesis is 19 th November, 2017, but I am unable to meet up the deadline as my some writing work is still pending because patent is to be reviewed by external reviewer before submission of the research thesis. I am pregnant as well and is facing complications in it and was unable to study or do any work related to the research and as a proof of my words I am attaching medical certificate of mine with this application and I am a working woman as well. All the three reasons are genuine in their nature and I need few weeks more in submission of the final research paper.

Kindly see to this matter and grant me more time for the completion of my thesis. Thanking in anticipation.

Yours Truly,

Ms. Rita Ronny,

It is to inform you that recently my brother died and I could not handle myself. This drastic loss took a lot of my mental peace and time. It is my request to extend the submission date of my final research project. My nature of reason is very genuine and I hope you comprehend. I am sure that I will complete it by that time and submit you promptly.
