Model Answer:

This topic reminds me of the day when I was late for my physics practical class at my college. I must thank you first for the time you have allowed me to talk about it. 
 
My physics lab was supposed to start at 11.30 am but I could not make it to the lab until 12.15 pm. When I reached the lab and asked for the teacher's permission to join the class, the teacher pointed out his wristwatch to remind me that I was already late. He then told me that all other students in the lab are taking a class test and the mark would be added to our final score! He also mentioned that I will not be allowed any extra time and the test will end at 1.00 pm.
 
Frankly speaking, I was shocked that the teacher had decided to take an exam on the very day I was late! However, I was determined to take part in it and finish the test before 1.00 pm. Personally, I think that it was a really difficult task especially because I learned about the experiment the week before and did not get the opportunity to examine it myself. And it was even more challenging since I had only around 40 minutes left to complete it. 
 
I had to think and act really fast. The first thing I needed to do was to take the tools from the lab assistant and then concentrate on the question. I thought about the experiment the teacher showed us a week ago and the harder I tied, more difficult it seemed! I took a deep breath and started working on the experiment. 
 
My task was to find the value of v for different values of u in case of a concave mirror and to find the focal length. I quickly mounted the concave mirror in the mirror holder, moved the mirror forward and backwards to get a sharp image of the object on the wall. I needed to measure the rough focal length of the mirror and then followed several other steps to get the results of the experiments. I did not even notice the time and when the teacher declared that the time was up, I handed over my answer sheet to him. 
 
Luckily I managed to finish the experiment and wrote down my findings on the answer sheet. I did everything so swiftly that I could not be sure whether I did good or ruined the whole experiment! When the teacher returned my answer sheet the next week, I was excited to notice that I managed B+ on this quickly done lab exam which was in a way quite inspiring for me.
