Model Answer 1:
Everyone wants a very good score on the examination. But if they cannot get the desired score, they feel unhappy. It is quite natural. The similar thing happened to me. I was unhappy with my academic scores. In the last semester of my academic career, I could not get the desired score and it was really an unhappy event for me. Thank you for the question, and I will describe it now.

It was the end of 2015 when I appeared in the semester final examination of my undergraduate level at Texas State University. But the score was not up to the mark and it was unusual to me. I was unable to cross even the range of CGPA 3.00 in the final semester. As a business undergraduate, it was a shame for me. Though I had some troubles regarding the understanding of some of the courses and mathematics, I was really disappointed with me and my score. My parents were displeased with me as well for the score.

Actually, I was supposed to join a marketing company as a marketing intern for their products. They asked me about a specific score against the post. Besides, achieving a higher score is also adorable for anyone. So, I wanted to have a good score for me. Accordingly, I studied but could not get the desired score. I do not know what happened to the scores and me. Some of my friends told me that I might have done some mistakes. I admitted their opinions but still, I am confused about the semester result. I had spent a moderate amount of time on my studies and thus expected a good result. But everything was out of my control. Later I remembered that it was my fault. I missed some of the questions of a course named Business Management. The questions were about some complex mathematical terms and their functions.

I was in Texas when the event took place. In fact, I lived alone near my university and worked as a part-time sales executive for a local shop to bear my educational and other expenses. My parents lived in another state. Despite being solvent enough to bear my expense from family, I choose to bear the expense on my own. But I had a close contact with them always. They had some idea that their son is spoilt and wastes time with buddies more than studying. But their ideas were not true. And it was a challenge for me to make them understand that I was not wasting my times after any unnecessary activities other than my job. Even I did not have any girlfriend to spare time with. But the undesired CGPA indicated everything against me. I was really in trouble then.

I felt unhappy about the event for many reasons. First of all, I had to miss that internship which I was almost selected for. Moreover, I had a communication gap with my parents for few weeks. It appeared that I could not make a good score due to my insincerity and sparing time with the bad boys of the university. But everything was clear to them after a certain time. They knew I had some weakness in Mathematics and only for the issue, my score slipped to a great extent. Besides, I had to retake the course for improvement but the similar thing happened again. However, the days are gone but the feelings are still inside. I felt very unhappy with the unwanted score. The memory is still vivid in my mind.
