    In mine, I wish I had just slowed down. I didn't think quick enough as the words were coming out, so slow down and just act like you're trying to have a normal conversation with the examiner. Your goal is to sound fluent, interested and passionate, so talk how you normally would. Confidence helps, but it's more important that you express yourself. Engage them and try and control the conversation, or steer it in your preferred direction.

    I had the mark scheme somewhere, but basically you just want to be expressive. Mine was pretty clunky and stilted because I was nervous, so even if you're nervous you should try to sound passionate.

    Umm, I think that's all really? Good luck!
