Respected Sir,

I, am Rohal Verma, of class IX, section A of your reputed institution. I am writing this letter to kindly request you to allow me to change my optional subject. I had initially opted for computer applications for my optional subject. However, after attending a few classes I am still not able to grasp the subject entirely. Also, in my 11th and 12th grades, I wish to take humanities. So a subject related to humanities will really help me prepare for my future studies.

I would have enough time to get accustomed to the new subject and I will be more proficient in that subject if I have the basic concepts clear. Hence, I wish to change my current optional subject and opt for Psychology. Our school also offers Psychology as the main subject for 11th and 12th grades. I think this would be the best optional subject for me. I hope you would understand the situation and grant me permission to change the optional subject. I will be highly obliged for your consideration. 

Yours sincerely,
Rohan Verma ( Class IX, A)

Respected Madam,

I, Neha Das, am a student of class IX, section C of your esteemed institution. With due respect, I humbly request you to permit me to change the optional subject. Currently, my optional subject is Home Science and I wish to change and opt for the French language. Earlier when we were asked to choose an optional subject, the French language was not offered in our subject list. Hence, I opted for Home science as I did not find anything suitable for me. But recently, the French language has been introduced as an optional subject for grade IX. The French department is really good with a great faculty on board.

This will be a great learning opportunity for me to expand my knowledge and views of another culture. Nowadays, learning a foreign language plays a crucial part in landing good career options. I want to prepare myself for a prospective future from now on. I hope you would cooperate in my genuine interest. I earnestly request you to grant me permission for changing the subject. I will be highly obliged if you take my situation into consideration.  

Yours obediently,
Neha Das (Class IX, C)

I would like to opt for elements of bookkeeping and accountancy. I have decided to take up Commerce for my higher secondary studies. Hence learning a subject related to accountancy will be a great help.

Commerce is going to be a completely new subject for me. If I start studying from now on about accountancy, I will be able to grasp it very quickly and also be more confident. With your kind cooperation, I can study the subject of my own preference. I hope you would understand my genuine concern and permit me to change my optional subject.

Sub: Requesting to change the optional subject

Respected Madam,

I, Ranveer Kumar, am a student of your renowned institution. I am from class IX, section D. In grade IX, as per the school’s regulations we all had to take an optional subject as you must be aware. I opted for physical education in the beginning. However, at present, I wish to change the subject and opt for fine arts. While choosing the subject, I was confused and in a hurry, I chose the previous subject. But my real interest lies in fine arts.

I have been a student of arts from my childhood. I have also participated in various art events organized by our school. Studying fine arts from our stellar art department faculty would be a huge milestone for me. I will be able to polish my skills even more. I hope you would consider my genuine cause here and grant me to change the optional subject. I will be highly obliged for your support. 

Yours sincerely,
Ranveer Kumar ( Class IX, D)
