Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.

• Sometimes, we get provided with incorrect information.

• Although such instances are rare but they do cause a lot of trouble.

• I was also given an incorrect piece of information about a College where my cousin wanted to take admission for the course of Hotel Management.

• It was last year that she was planning to take admission after her class 12 results.

• We googled all the possible colleges which offered the course and finally decided on a institute in Dehradun.

• The website had given a lot of incorrect information about the college.

• Sadly, all of it was mere claims and when we actually went there to see the college, nothing from the claims came about to be real.

• Although the hotel that ran the college was good but the actual college which we went there for was nothing but a two-room college being run in the backyard of the hotel.

• We all were shocked to see the so-called college which was shown as something big and elaborate on the website but was actually lesser than a primary village school.

• Immediately, to manage the situation, we decided to cancel our admission plans there and re-planned for my cousin’s admission.

• Later, she changed her mind and decided to pursue the course of Mass Communication.

• We got her admitted to a University near our city and she is doing very well there.
