Part 1 (3 minutes)

 

Examiner: Now Part One. I’m going to ask you some questions about yourself and your ideas.

 

*The examiner can ask you from 3 to 5 questions depending on the length of your answer. Keep talking until they tell you to stop or calculate your answer to be around 30 seconds. The questions will not be displayed on the screen. You will not see the timer on the screen, so time management is intuitive.
