Band 9.0 Sample Answer Ideas.

One time when I missed an appointment was when I had a doctor’s appointment at my local clinic. I had made the appointment a few weeks in advance, and I had written it down in my planner so that I wouldn’t forget it. However, on the day of the appointment, I ended up getting caught up in some other tasks and completely lost track of time.

The appointment was at 2:00 PM, and I didn’t realize I had missed it until around 3:00 PM when I checked my planner and saw that the appointment was marked as “missed.” I was immediately panicked and called the clinic to see if they could reschedule me for another time. However, they were fully booked for the rest of the day, and I would have to wait a week to see the doctor.

When I missed the appointment, I felt embarrassed and guilty because I had forgotten something that was important to my health. I was also worried about the impact it would have on my treatment, as I was concerned that the delay would set me back. Overall, I was disappointed in myself for missing the appointment and frustrated that I had to wait an extra week to see the doctor.
