Why client ended the contract without discussing the problem

I just started working on this platform and I had this contract started only a week ago. My client is on the other side of the world so that time difference is quite long. So before I started the first job I asked if there's a deadline for that project and he said no just do it when you have time. So since I started immediately and already had the schedule/ appointment set since before I got the job, I had to find the time to work on it. These appointments were very important, one is related with my residence permit and the other one is a job interview. Also during the afternoon, I have a course that takes 4 hours each day. 

The communication with the client was all good, he gave me advice and tell me to do some revisions and I did it. But since I had those appointments and course during the day, I did it at night and I didn't give any reason to the client because for me it's not nice to always give reasons. Then after a week, the client ended the contract without saying anything. I tried to contact but he didn't answer. Now I have to give a feedback, what should I do?

Clients are not required to discuss problems with freelancers before ending a contract.

You are not obligated to give feedback.

 

You may give feedback and see the client's feedback immediately.

 

Or you may decline to give feedback, and wait two weeks to see the client's feedback.

 

Or you may click appropriate star ratings on everything for the feedback, and leave comments blank, and submit feedback without thinking about it too much, and then you will immediately be able to see the client-provided feedback.

Thank you for the advice. I had done the feedback and so far it wasn't a good experience for me.

A consequence of misrepresenting yourself is that it catches up to you quickly. It's really important for noobs to do things they know that they can do and have experience doing it.

 

If you have no real world experience, you're gonna have a bad time. College isn't real world experience either. Neither is interning.

I'm going by your profile which seems to suggest you were a TA and did some interning.

Yes it's because I didn't put all of my achievements here as a fashion stylist and designer in the real life Just joined this platform 2 weeks ago. Sorry to make it seems like an interning.
