The Speaking module may take place the afternoon of Test day or on a different day. It can also be in a different location.

– Make sure that you know where the Speaking interview is going to take place and, if necessary, do a trial run to ensure that you know how to get there.

– You will be given a time and you should arrive at least 15 minutes before that time. Ideally 30-45 minutes beforehand.

– Make sure that you bring all the appropriate identification documents with you. If you do not have then, you will be asked to go home and get them.

– Before entering the examination room your identification will be checked. In some centres photos are taken and/or finger prints recorded.

– If you arrive shortly after the time given for your interview you may have to wait until the next candidates has been interviewed.

– If you arrive more than 30 minutes after the time given for your interview the examiner is not obliged to conduct the interview. Although, depending on the circumstances, they may be prepared to do so.

– Bags, electronic devices such as mobiles and tablets are not allowed in the interview room. So be prepared to leave them outside. If you are concerned about the security of these it is best to leave them at home.

– You can take a small bottle of water into the interview and tissues if you need to.

– It is not advisable to chew gum during the interview.

– Be aware that the interviewer will have the recorder on from the moment you enter the room. Interviewers are not permitted to engage in ‘small talk’ so don’t worry if they appear unfriendly.

– The examiner understands that many candidates will be very nervous and possibly be under great stress to perform well. Thus, they will do what they can to help nervous candidates relax.

– Don’t let the recorder make your nervous. The main purpose of this is to check the performance of the examiner, not you.

– Finally, remember that the examiner, unlike a class teacher, is looking out for all good things in your Speaking module, and not the things you do wrong. They want you to perform to the best of your ability!
