You should say:

when and where you heard it
how you heard it
and explain why you think it was good news
The best news for me up till now is that my parents finally stopped forcing me to take the college entrance examination, so that I could focus on the preparation for the IELTS test.
Well actually that’s a long story, and I’ll try to make it short.
Um… my parents are the kind of people who are like perfectionists, and I’ve always been taught that I need to do everything well, which is pretty stressful you know. But growing up in a typical Chinese family, I don’t have too much right to decide my future or the way I am taught, except for my decision of studying abroad, they are quite supportive and open-minded about this, actually.
But the thing is, although they both agree that I would attend a university in a foreign country, they still wanted me to take the college entrance examination, despite the fact that I won’t need the score of that exam at all. And their explanation is, that experience is valuable for every student in China, I’ve been studying for almost 12 years, if I don’t take the exam, then it would feel like I am missing out on something important. Besides, they argued that what I learned in high school is also useful after I go off to college.
So you see, for about half a year, every day after school, I had to finish my homework my teachers assigned, and then I needed to stay up late until midnight to prepare for the IELTS test, which, without doubt, made me exhausted not only physically but also mentally.
So I had a heart-to-heart conversation with my dad, telling him what I truly felt and how stressed out I was, and he realized that I just couldn’t take it physically, because during that time, I always got sick.
So after serious consideration, my parents finally gave up, which was really good news for me.
