Grade Change Request Sample

Dear Professor NAME:

Thank you for speaking with me earlier regarding my grade for your class. When we spoke, you had asked me to write to you, giving my reasons why I believe that my grade should be changed and how it would impact me. Here are some of my reasons.

I am trying to enter some highly-ranked schools for my Ph.D., and have already inquired at these schools. They have expressed the need that a student should have all A’s in their business core classes. While a B+ in International Marketing is a good grade, I feel it would hurt my attempt to be competitive in trying to enter these schools.

I also feel that the work for the whole course should be taken into consideration more equally instead of having the final exam be worth 50 percent of my grade, especially considering that the final exam was just 24 questions. I was correct on 20, and feel that an entire letter grade level shouldn’t hinge on whether or not one question is answered incorrectly. On the quizzes, which were worth 30 percent of my grade, I had scored 63 out of a possible 67 points for 94 percent, plus, I took extra credit quizzes in the amount of 78 points. I also earned 100 percent of the marketing project and presentation, which I had been a Team Leader for, coordinating everything with my group and with you to ensure we were in compliance with your expectations.

In addition, I feel that I helped contribute heavily to the class discussions, asking many thought-provoking questions that lead you to go into greater detail on a specific topic or theory for all of us to better understand. With all this in consideration, I ask again for your help in finding a way to improve my grade. I thank you again for taking the time to consider this, and if you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

YOUR NAME
