Sample Answer of Describe an occasion when you forgot something important
Today I am going to share with you the time when I forgot something important/ I (once) borrowed something useful. It happened a few months ago when I had to attend an important exam for my accounting qualification.
The test strictly required candidates to use a black ballpoint pen to write the paper. I was sure that morning when I left for the exam that I had put two pens in my backpack. However, I was not sure of their ink colours. So by the time I reached the examination hall, I quickly opened my backpack to check. To my surprise, they were both blue pens.
This could have resulted in my answer booklet being disqualified, and I would have had to re-take the exam. Since the exam was held twice a year only, this mistake would not only have cost me valuable time but also a lot of money for the upcoming exams.
In a panic, I looked around to see any familiar face to ask for help; however, I did not see anyone but the examiner. I took a deep breath and decided to ask him if he had a spare black pen that I could borrow.
Luckily, he did. He was willing to lend me one and did not forget to remind me about the regulation. I was relieved and ready to sit my exam, thanks to a kind examiner.
