I want to ask something very politely by email and I'm not sure it sounds okay.. this is what I wrote:
May I know exactly on what day the result will be announced, by any chance? I have personal circumstances to need the result by <--date-->, so it would be very helpful if you let me know more specific date. Thank you.
I wonder if "May I know ~ " and "I have personal circumstances to ~" are grammatically correct and sound natural in English.
If not, is there a better way to say this politely?
