    I could not attend school as dad has mentioned in the previous application. Or

    I could not attend school as dad had mentioned in the previous application.

    Re: Had mentioned or has mentioned

    You don't need either. You can just use the past simple. I wouldn't use "mentioned".

    I could not attend school as [my] dad/father explained in the previous application.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
