Sample answer

I really enjoyed the APPE we had to complete. I had the chance to try a real job under supervision and I convinced myself once again that this is exactly what I want to do in my life. I believe it was a really good preparation for the job. And mathematical subjects, especially Calculus, were the toughest for me. It took me some time to pass the exam. I understood, however, that every subject is important, and I worked hard until I finally passed all the exams.
