One of the school going students in our city approached us and asked how to write a leave letter to her school Principal for not attending the exam due to illness. We advised her to refer some model letters in internet and write clearly what you are going to tell. As the leave has been taken without prior permission due to unexpected illness and it was already taken, we told her to use past tense in his leave letter writing. She searched in internet and told us no useful information got from the internet. Then we have decided to draft a beautiful letter in our website itself, that is www.howtoletter.com . You may find this sample format of leave application below and write your own application to your school Principal or College Principal.
