Model Answer 1:
Everyone wants to score well in their examination, and when they cannot get the desired score, they feel unhappy. It is quite natural, and that's exactly what had happened to me almost three years ago. I felt miserable because I thought I did well in that particular exam, but the test result was dismaying, to say the least. I am going to share this unhappy experience with you.

It was at the end of 2019 when I appeared in my 9th-semester final examination of my undergraduate course at Texas State University. The result was published two weeks later. Till that exam, I'd been able to maintain a CGPA over 3.5. But the result of that semester, despite my confidence that I did moderately well in it, was below 3.0 - an all-time low in my university life. My parents were also displeased with my score. So it made me sad to a great extent. 

I had spent a moderately good amount of time on my studies and thus expected a good result in my 9th semester. But everything was out of my control at the end of that semester. It all went wrong due to an unexpectedly bad result that semester. 

I was in Texas when the event took place. In fact, at that time, I used to live near my university and worked as a part-time sales executive for a local sales office to support my educational and other expenses. I was in my room and checked my test result online, and it was so hard to believe that I scored so poorly.

I felt unhappy about the event for many reasons. First of all, my CGPA dropped to a significantly low level due to this bad test result. Moreover, I had to think about my parents, who expected me to score really good. I was anxious that they must have had felt discontented. The tension, anxiety, regret and unhappiness that I felt were so great that the memory is still vivid in my mind. I am happy that I could have increased my CGPA during the next few semesters for which I had to study even more rigorously and dedicatedly.
