Sample Answer 1
School days are a source of nostalgia for me as myriads of memories come rushing back, changing my mood completely. One such happy memory was when the whole school, except the junior section, was taken to watch a movie, Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban.
When I think about it now, I understand what a hectic day it might have been for the teachers. But, we were having the time of our lives. You might be thinking about what is so special about going to the theatres. Well, ten to twelve years back, it meant a huge thing because until we reached a certain age, we were allowed to go out with our friends unsupervised. So, although we had to sit according to our roll numbers after the lights went off, we quickly shifted to our seats among our close friends. Although I am a Potterhead and would not miss a scene for anything in the world, sitting beside my friends and gossiping about the movie felt worthwhile.
Well, memorable things usually happen with or around people or things you love. The school was a time in our lives when we still retained our innocence even though there were numerous diversions around us. Friends, study, sports and simple things mean more than money and peace, which we lack when we grow up. So, I guess, as our mind is free from worldly corruption and our eyes are filled with dreams and aspirations for the future, we have the most unforgettable time of our life during this phase
Sample Answer 2
Several memorable events happened in my life to be recalled and discussed. However, out of all that, I want to discuss one of my unforgettable moments during my higher secondary section. I used to bunk Biology practical classes in 12th standard.
The reason for bunking was foolish yet relevant to describe to all of you. My best friends and I always tried to escape the oral questions classes asked in the classroom. Dr. Jonathan was the faculty of Biology. Every time, during the weekly assessment, he used to mark for regular class activity and attendance. Frequently, he called out my friend’s name due to the considerable gap in her attendance sheet and asked her to bring her parents. As we were partners in crime, I had to get my parents too. Every month, my parents had to refuse the request for a parent’s meeting as they were of the reason, which annoyed them. One day, I got berated for my class performance as missing classes took a toll on my results. Eventually, my mother found out and chastised me so much that I stopped bunking my classes from that time onwards. In fact, my cell phone was also taken away from me. But, his class was so exhausting and tedious that I began to take a power nap in the middle of the course.
During school days, we all get time to enjoy ourselves with our friends and by involving in different things. Though I had bunked lots of Bio classes, I scored the highest marks in the end-term exam. Therefore, we must enjoy our school life with full freedom and focus on our studies as well.
