Some Important Points:

  • These kinds of applications are really formal. So keep them short and simple. Do not over-explain or exaggerate stuff.
  • If you have a personal relationship with the authority issuing a continuation certificate, meet with them in person, and explain the situation. Request to issue a certificate before a particular deadline, if there is one.
  • If you do not have a personal relationship, go with the formal application process.  
  • Do not get too personal or specific. Just state the matter and mention your name, roll number, and the grade you studied in.
