Sample Email Request to reschedule exam

Dear Professor [Last Name],

I am enrolled in your Biology 301 class and have been absent for the past five weeks because of injuries I sustained in an automobile accident.

You have kindly accommodated my situation by allowing me to turn in my homework late, and this has helped make it possible for me to remain enrolled in the university and not lose a semester, and I am very grateful to you.

I have been released from the hospital, but still need to walk with crutches for the next month. 

Because of this inconvenience, it will be very difficult to do the required research for the midterm exam on DATE.

Therefore, I request you to postpone my exam by 10 days. I shall take the exam on any other date as decided by you.

Thank you again for the kindness you have shown me during this difficult time and for taking the time to consider my request.

I would be happy to answer any questions, and have enclosed a letter from my doctor explaining my current physical condition. You can call me at 555-123-4567 or email me at
