Describe a particular event in which you were successful

- what preparation of yours was involved in it
- and explain how you felt about achieving success in it
Here, I’d like to talk about a specific event in which I was successful. Post my under graduation, I decided to pursue my MBA from a foreign university. I had applied for various universities in many different countries, and my hard work finally paid off when I was selected to study at the University of Victoria, Canada, along with a full scholarship. But the university required an IELTS band score of 7 for admissions to the MBA programme. Eventually, I had to prepare for the IELTS exam. It was immediately after my graduation, and I was very tense because I had no prior knowledge about the IELTS. So, I ran from pillar to post, searching for genuine IELTS coaching classes. Finally, after a few days of my research, I enrolled in a preparation course offered at a coaching center, and within a month, the course helped me improve my weaknesses and skills. With constant preparation and patience, I effectively learned, prepared, and achieved my target scores of IELTS band 7.5.
This was one of the events where I managed to achieve success. It was indeed a dream come true and a triumphant moment in my life. Everyone in my family was super proud as I was the first to pursue an MBA from a prominent foreign university.
