I am writing to officially request permission to sit for seven NEWTs, rather than just the allotted five. As you know, my performance in my classes has always been well above average, so it's not an unreasonable request. As my original career choice has been somewhat--hampered by a recent unpleasant event that I'm sure you're aware of, I'd like to take as many NEWTs as I believe I can handle, to keep my future job options as open as possible, and I would appreciate your assistance in this matter.
