Model Answer:
I was the student of the City University located in Hong Kong and I can remember the farewell event of the university which was held marking the closure of the graduation ceremony. This was a beautiful event and each of the students felt honoured on this day. I also took part in the event and can recall the happenings clearly. This cue card questions helping me to remember the day. I will describe my memory regarding this event.

The entire university was well decorated marking the event. All the students of my batch were asked to be there in the morning and accordingly we were there. The university authority arranged a grand way to bid us farewell as we have completed the graduation. All of the students received their certificates and a crest with some remarks and wishing our success ahead in life.

It was a gala event. The university authority asked the parents of the students to be present at the event. My mother was with me and my father could not be there. He was out of the city. Besides, the university chancellor, vice chancellor, and other administration officials were present there in line with the other invited guests. Some of the former students were also invited to tell us about their success stories. The event was filled with joy and happiness. And ended in a cheerful manner.

I can remember the event very well for few reasons. The most important thing was that it was the last day of my university. The authority provided us with the certificates and other acknowledgements for our achievements. It was the day when we formally took leave from the university premise. In the end, we recalled the memories and returned home with a heavy heart. In fact, even today, I miss the university days badly.

"Describe a special school or college event that you remember well." 

Most of the people are fond of school and college days because they miss childhood very much. Amid numerous events of those days, an IELTS candidate can have diversified means to deal with this cue card. Some other hints for this cue card are enlisted here for their convenience.

1. I was afraid of the parents’ day in the college. All the parents of the students were invited and they were informed about the latest updates regarding academic issues. I can remember clearly the last parents’ meeting where I was declared as the best performer in the college. The authority awarded me. I was surprised indeed at the matter.

2. Taking unnecessary breaks for water was a habit that I developed to avoid classes. But my teachers were smarter than me. One of the teachers noticed the matter and after a thorough investigation found that I did not take water and instead waste time on the corridor during class hours. I was punished severely!!

3. A boy was caught with some cheating papers during an exam at the college. In fact, the authority of the University of Kerala is serious about the matter. They do not allow any students to cheat on the exam and pay extra attention to this issue. Somehow the student managed to cheat and got caught. He was suspended for next six months and also the authority issued a letter so that he cannot participate any exam in this period.

4. The inauguration of the multimedia classroom at the Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur in India was a remarkable event that I still can remember. The entire premise took a festive mood. This was a notable day for the institution. When the projector was switched on at a class, everyone shouted loudly. It was a victory for us.

5. I love to enjoy sports and like the other years, I was sitting in the gallery of annual sports competition of my college. Suddenly someone stumbled on me and the beverage container wet me completely. I was astonished by this event. But I had nothing to do as this was an unintentional accident.
