Band 8 Sample
(When) I would like to talk about a special day when I received an amount of money from my university, which is possibly one of the happiest events in my entire life. It was only 2 months ago and I still remember that day rather clearly.
(Who) It was the principal of my university who awarded the money to me. To be honest, I didn’t expect him to give us a lot of money since my school was on a tight budget to help unprivileged students. The moment when I got announcement from my head teacher, I was over the moon.
(What) After competing in an English Test competition with flying colors, I was rewarded an amount of 100 USD. I consider myself a competitive person; therefore, I always try my best in every single English competition. I still remember the moment the principal walking into my class and giving me a handshake. Then, he gave me a small envelope and a certificate. While returning home, I found myself flying in joy.
