    differences between "together while preparing" and "together with taking preparation"

    1. Two nights ago, while I was going to bed, I suddenly remembered that I had to submit two assignments together while preparing for the class test.

    2. Two nights ago, while I was going to bed, I suddenly remembered that I also had to submit two assignments together with taking preparation for class test.

    Does the second sentence sound natural? Or is it grammatically correct? If it is wrong, please say why it is wrong. Do these two sentences mean same?

    "While I was going to bed" is not natural. Try "as/just as I was getting ready for bed".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please say details about my query. I think I failed to express what I wanted.

    The night before last, just as I was getting into bed, I remembered that I had to submit two assignments and prepare for a class test.

    That's the best I can do at the moment. It might help to know when the assignments are due and when the class test will be held. If they are due the next day, I might add something to that effect to the sentence.
