Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to inform you about my A level exams. I got 74 from Mathematics and 86 from both Lithuanian language and English language. Unfortunately, my IELTS is lower than I expected (Listening 6.5, Reading 7, Writing 5, Speaking 6 - overall band 6.0). I do not stay focused during the exam because the time was limited. This is the cause why the writing task is not good at all.
Despite these inadequacies, I still want to study at the University of XXX and hope that you will give me a chance. If so, I will try to improve my English during summer and then at the time of studies.
I look forward to your favourable reply and hope that my application will be taken into consideration again.
Hi Lilly! This is a strange rule, but EVERY word in the opening salutation should be capitalized. Also, use a colon:
Dear Sir Or Madam:
Use the past verb tense: I did not stay...
I think it will be more convincing if you write a few sentences about what is most important to you, the goal you want to achieve. It is the goal that rives you and fills you with potential. :-) Your goal-setting also inspires the reader.
Hei Ana, did you ever get a response about becoming an EF_Contributor? If not, maybe it was overlooked. Let me know!
I think u should write something other than ur scores
Pf! Hei? Sir, this is not to be borne! How dare you employ my way of greeting after having whinged about it?! >P
Hmm ... weird :-? I cannot say I didn't get a response. I remember receiving a mail saying: "We'll let Kev 'n Susan know about your message". So I thought I was a contributor already XD. If that's the message I should have gotten, then yes, I got a response.
Ha ha, okay, sorry for the confusion. You certainly have earned a place on that contributors page, for whatever it is worth. I'll look into it again!
