I need ASAP help in writing an effective letter explaining reasons behind poor academic performance. I have a history of meeting with this committee before, however this time, the failure is due to an acute illness and uncontrollable circumstances. Therefore, I am having trouble putting the context into words without making it seem like a convenient explanation or due to some sort of psychiatric somatic manifestation. I really don’t know how to get to the committee effectively via professional letter format and my past letters have been too emotional and disorganized. Please help!
