Sample Answer 1 Describe a Time when You were
Life is full of joys and sorrows, and I must admit that there have been numerous instances or circumstances where I have felt incredibly let down. I once had a depressing encounter like this about 2-3 years ago.
When was that?
the first time I attempted to make an internet purchase. Actually, I was looking for a pair of Nike brand athletic sneakers. One day, when I was browsing Facebook, I noticed an advertisement for a pair of shoes that I had just purchased at the store.
Now, I was shocked to learn that the advertisement's price was only Rs. 2000 and that it was a one-time deal. I couldn't afford to pass up the chance. Consequently, without giving it much thought or doing much research,
After placing the order, I had to pay with a credit card, and the money was immediately taken out of my account. I was now excitedly awaiting the courier, and after a few days, I got it. When I first got it, I was over the moon, but I quickly became very disappointed.
What took place? and why you were sad, please?
I was surprised to see a completely different product when I opened the box. It wasn't the genuine Nike Sports sneakers; it was a phony item. It wasn't even close to what was depicted in the brochure or the marketing.
I rushed to contact the company to request a replacement or a refund of the money I had already paid, but they refused. They claimed that they don't have a return or exchange policy.
They made a fool of me, and I was quite dissatisfied in how they conducted themselves, but I wasn't at fault because I didn't enquire deeply enough. Now that this pair was completely useless to me, there was nothing I could do.
It wasn't even my size, in fact. Its size was entirely different. So I gave this pair of shoes to a beggar in the end.
Overall, I can say that it was a very depressing and disappointing day for me.

Everyone wants to perform well on their exam, therefore when they don't achieve it, they become frustrated. That is exactly what had happened to me about three years prior, so it is completely natural. I felt awful because, despite my belief that I performed well on that specific exam, the test's outcome was, to put it mildly, disappointing. I'm going to tell you about this unpleasant incident.
I took my undergraduate course's ninth-semester final test at Texas State University at the end of the year. Two weeks later, the results were released. I had been able to keep my CGPA over 3.5 up until that exam. Nevertheless, the grade I received that semester was less than 3.0, which was a career-low for me during my time in college, despite my belief that I did relatively well. My performance also angered my parents. I was quite upset as a result.
I expected to do well in my ninth semester because I had put in a decent amount of time studying. But by the conclusion of that semester, nothing was in my hands. Due to an unanticipatedly poor outcome that semester, everything went wrong.
Texas is where I was when it happened. In order to pay for my schooling and other expenditures at the time, I actually used to live close to my institution and work part-time as a sales executive for a nearby sales office. It was quite difficult for me to accept that I scored so low when I looked at my test results online when I was in my room.
For a variety of reasons, the occurrence made me upset. First off, as a result of this poor test score, my CGPA dramatically decreased. I also had to consider my parents, who wanted me to do well on the test. I was concerned that they must have been unhappy. The stress, worry, remorse, and misery I had were so intense that the memory is still clearly in my head. I'm glad that throughout the following few semesters, during which I had to study even harder and more diligently, I was able to raise my cumulative grade point average.

A few years ago, I went to see my aunt in a city that I knew very little about. I had only visited the city twice before. When I initially went there approximately 7 or 8 years ago, the extremely crowded and massive metropolis seemed a little different. For instance, the streets were widened, and numerous new businesses and structures were built. In addition, I was not aware that some of the shops and services had moved to new places.
If it weren't for the fact that my aunt had asked me to get her prescription from a particular pharmacy, none of this would be a problem for me. She used an inhaler from a foreign brand that was only sold at one particular pharmacy in the city since she suffered from asthma. I thought I knew where the pharmacy was, if not exactly. However, when I got there, I found that the drugstore had moved. I questioned a few persons there, but nobody was able to provide any information. I was hesitant to use my smartphone's internet, but I had little choice because there were no other possibilities. Thankfully, my phone's Google search for the pharmacy's name gave me the location's address and driving instructions.
When I figured out where the drugstore was, I sighed with relief. I bought my aunt's medication right away. Such a relief, I tell you. I didn't want my aunt to suffer because of my failure to find a pharmacy and buy her prescription, after all.
