I have received the comments on the paper I submitted for the second assignment for the fifth module. One part of the comment stated that the assignment required two examples and not just one. Upon checking the original instructions for the second assignment, however, I found out that I was only required to provide one example. I sincerely accept the apology of the good professor as I think it was an honest mistake and not one which was intentionally made.
I have received a grade lower than what I expected just because I followed the original instructions for the second assignment. I received 30 points out of the possible 56 from the paper, which in turn affected my final grade in class. It is in my firm belief that I should have been given at least a better grade than what I have received since I was unaware in the first place that the instructions given were not accurate. The directions, as the good professor have said, were not made clear. Knowing that the good professor is professional in handling academic matters, I thought my grade would have been changed accordingly or the professor would make adjustments to the grade. At the least, I assumed that the professor would have allowed me to redo the paper so that I can be able to compensate for the unclear instructions first given.
I understand that the good professor wants the best for students like me through our own efforts. Being one of your students, I have given my best to follow the instructions provided and submitted the required paper to the best of my knowledge. I would like to make an appeal with regard to the grade I received. With all due respect, I would like to appeal for an adjustment with the grade I received for the paper I submitted for the second assignment under module five.
I am looking forward to a favorable response and I would like to thank the good professor for the time reading my letter.
