In Nigeria, one of the most asked undergraduate questions is “sample or how to write a letter of complaint to school administration concerning result” “How do I write an application letter for a missing result” On this page, you will learn the format and how to write these letters with ease. There are only 2 samples on this page. You will find extra samples when you download the letters.

Due to many requests, I have also made the letters readily available for download. You can download the application letter for missing results or a letter requesting for your exam script to be remarked. After downloading, you can make some modifications. Remember to follow the tips I mention on this page.

To experience a missing result is bad, I know, I’ve been there!. The frustration, sleepness night and worries without end. I won’t pray that ordeal for my enemy. Going to the departmental board or university online portal to check a semester result but unfortunately, one or two results are missing; for a fact, that may be comforting since there may be hope.

The worst scenario is when you are expecting a good grade in a particular course but you ended up with an F. Very sad, very sad indeed because that’s an automatic carryover.

It doesn’t take a soothsayer to know that most of these incidents are not fated but planned by certain people pursuing a personal vendetta against a student. Although we know that some of these incidents may happen by chance or carelessness, yet it is not acceptable. No, never.

Popular causes of missing results/scripts are

  • Sexual harassment
  • Cultism
  • Not buying handouts/textbooks
  • Class assignments
  • Attendance
  • Dating a lecturer’s girlfriend/boyfriend
  • Handling a large number of student results with limited time
  • Examination misconduct

To write an application letter requesting a missing result/script or remark in Nigeria is a bold step not for the faint-hearted. You may end up with many enemies. If you are so sure that F is not among your least expected grades and there were no registered examination misconduct from you, then request for your script to be remarked.

You can write to the head of the department to rectify this failed course. It is allowed (Every school has a policy that covers remarking of student script.) Prompt attention is usually given to such complaints from students.

During one of my comprehensive research concerning this common student issue, I discovered that all academic grievances and complaints from students such as correction of wrong grades, errors in the computation of student’s CGPAs, omitted grades, missing script etc, are usually documented and handed over to the appropriate committee through either the Head of the Department or the Dean.

You also have the right to petition the school Board or Senate if you’re not satisfied with the decision of the Department Board or School Board. So don’t be afraid. Complaint such as missing result script is a very delicate matter if reported adequately.


How to write a letter complaining or requesting for missing script, wrong grade or remark

The process:

You: If you feel victimized by a lecturer you may report immediately to the Vice-Chancellor through his head of department and Dean of the faculty for proper investigation.

School: Authentication of victimization by the department and/or faculty special committee through invitation of staff concerned and script.

School: Provisions for remarking (if that is your request) is done by a qualified lecturer within the department or from another university.

School: Concerned staff would be disciplined if found guilty.


Make sure you carry your course adviser along before you submit your letter. He or she may be summoned by the VC to get an update on what’s going on with your result. Your course advisor’s reply can determine if your request will be attended to or not.

Secondly, since you cannot meet the VC directly, you should give a tip (money) to the VC’s secretary. They have the power to discard your letter or ensure that the VC receives the letter and also read it.

Dear Sir

Request for Result Script Remark

I, Miss Evelyn Enebeli (FOE/2011/50491), a 400 level student from the Department of Library and Information science, Delta State University, Abraka has been in so much distress after the release of the first-semester result 5 days ago.

I was expecting the least grade of C4 on LIS 402 Catalogue and Classification but to my uttermost surprise, I had an F and this shouldn’t be. I behaved myself well during the examination; no misconduct and I answered the examination question to the best of my knowledge.
