Sample Answer 

Since my childhood, I was in the impression that being from a metropolitan named Delhi, makes me superior to others and gives me an upper edge. I would always treat my mates, belonged to Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities, in a not so welcoming manner. Until, I came across this girl, Anjali. She put up from one of the remotest areas of Uttarakhand. The kind of command over English she possessed, yet the humbleness she had in herself, was truly inexplicable. She really made me think that being better at one skill or being an urban guy doesn’t make you an elite personality. I, who always procrastinated my tasks yet boasted stolen thunders, actually pondered over it, in fact, I had to. Well, eventually, I endeavoured to be like her. I began to see everyone from the same prism. Seems like, now, I have started giving priority to assessments over judgements.

Speaking -Part 3 (Follow up questions)
Here are some examples of follow up questions that examiner may ask during your speaking (part 3) related to cue card ‘Describe a positive change in your life’.

Q1. Do you feel youngsters should have right attitude towards money?

Indeed, one has to be familiar with the fact that earning money needs time and efforts. Merely, having it isn’t suffice. Maintaining and managing it is also a skill. Especially, adolescents, who are always quite vulnerable towards baffling arrays of life, needs to be cautious while spending.

Q2. Do you agree: love of money is the root cause of all evil?

Well, if not an evil, surely one of the catalysts that pushes you to be. I mean have a look at the criminal cases like robbery, theft, and some of the murders, happen to seem like just one cause behind and that’s money. Love to earn and make it double isn’t a concern, but when this love turns into greed, surely it is lethal.

Word Meaning Example
Baffle confusing It always baffles me to pick between science and commerce.
Lethal that can cause a great damage It’s quite lethal to smoke.
