You should say:

when it happened
why you got up early
who you were with
and explain how you felt about getting up early.

The first thing I want to say is that I hardly ever get up early, so when I do it must be something important.

So the nearest occasion when I had to be up early was last year when I took the IELTS test. It started at 8 in the morning so naturally I had to get up at 6. When I got out of the house it was still dark outside. It took me 20 minutes by motorbike to arrive at the hotel where the test was going to take place. Some other test takers had already come and were sitting inside the lounge, all looking quite drowsy and nervous.

I found myself a seat and started taking out a book to read. I normally find it useless to cram right before a test so I just do something to relax. At 8 everyone was called into a large meeting room where the organisers would have a short presentation on the test process. We were all required to leave our personal belongings outside the exam room.

Anyway, the test went well and I got the result I needed. I think I could’ve done better if I hadn’t been sleepy at the start of the test.

Describe an occasion when you got up extremely early.

  • when did you get up early

  • why you got up early

  • what did you do?

  • felt about it

Sample 1:-

Well, it is a good habit to get up early in the morning. in fact, I am a morning loving person who gets up around 6’0 clock in the morning to see the first ray of sun. However, I would like to talk about a situation when I woke up extremely early at about 2 am.

Last year, my brother got a student visa and he had a flight from Delhi to Sydney neat about 11:30 am. so it was quite important for us to reach at least 3 hours before the flight timing. I had finished his all packing at midnight and put multiple alarm on my mobile phone for got up early in the morning.

As my alarm keeps in the morning, it was very hard to wake up for me first then I forced myself and get up. after up, I washed my face then I made some milk-tea for my parents and myself. next, to it, I had awaked my parents and brother.

Following it, I had called a car driver which I booked for going. Luckily, he came on time and we left our house for the airport. There are some reasons why I got up extremely early. Firstly, we did not want to suck in traffic jams. Secondly, it was important for my brother to reached on before time to completed the necessary paperwork. last but not least, on that day the weather, was not too good so it was essential for us to go early to reach early. thus, this was the time when I got up extremely early.

Sample 2:-

Well, I’m a punctual person and, I also like to be in the proper time. I am usually get up early in the morning. then, go for a walk and, do exercise in the garden. But, sometime I get up too early for some important work and reasons.

But, here I would like to talk about an occasion when I woke up extremely early. I remember that day, 6 months ago, that time I filled my IELTS exam to improve my English skills and go to abroad my further studies.

Apart from it, I live in Moga city but, I filled my exam in Chandigarh city which nearly far from 180 km to my city.

Moreover, that day my exam held at 10:30 am. One day before, near at 11:30 pm I did all the work related to the exam and, set all documents in the documentary file.

After it, I put an alarm on my mobile phone for got up early in the morning. As my alarm keeps in the morning. it was a very difficult situation for me to woke up extremely early.

Interestingly, I woke up at 4:30 am and, I took a bath. then, I called my cousin. He dropped me on the bus stop. After it, I took the bus as well as, I reached here at 9:30 am then I did all the paperwork.

That’s the time when I need getting up extremely early but, according to me, that time was my wonderful experience.
