Having completed his first solo the previous day, the pilot was given a dual check and authorised to carry out five solo circuits. The first landing was reported as normal, however on the second, the pilot carried out a go-around after the aircraft bounced to about 30 feet. After a slight bounce on the next landing a go-around was carried out and the aircraft adopted a nose up attitude and turned left. The left wing struck a fence before the aircraft was landed in a field.
