Text Box

Writing Task 1 – You should spend about 20 minutes on this task || (minimum words limit 150)

You have been invited to attend an interview for a place studying a course in a college. Unfortunately because of a previous appointment you cannot come at the time they wish.

Write a letter to the admissions tutor and explain your position. Apologize and offer to come on another day or later the same day. Ask also how long the interview will be and whether there will be any tests during it.

Response 1:

Dear sir/madam,

I am writing with regard to the appointment for my interview for studying at your institution. I will be unable to attend to the aforementioned appointment due to some previous engagements.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience my cancelled appointment may cause. I am sorely regretful of the fact that I will not be able to attend, as even an appointment with your prestigious institution is anything but a commonality, more specifically, it is a privilege. My inability to attend the appointment is due to the fact that my mother will have to go for her cancer treatment in a neighbouring city and does not have anyone else to take her there, I'm all she has just as she's all I have.

I am fully prepared to arrange and attend an appointment of the next day or any day of your choosing. Please do let me know the duration of the interview as well as what I'll be needing to bring along for whatever I'll be required to do such as tests or presentations.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,
