i had my spanish speaking gcse today and basically for one of my answers i messed up a word by saying jugamos and not jugandos also at the end my teacher said that it all went really good but i should have used a few more complex 'wow phrases' in my general convo, would that take away a lot of marks??

Jugamos is correct, there's no such word as jugandos in Spanish.

What sorts of things are assessed in the speaking and how many general conversation questions are you asked?

Oh okay cause I was trying to say they were playing but I think it won't make a huge difference

Your accent, fluency and quality of your responses are assessed. I got asked about 6 questions for my general convo if you make your answers longer you will get fewer questions

https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/sample-papers-and-mark-schemes/2019/june/AQA-86982H-C-RP-JUN19.PDF 2019 speaking questions (2022 questions aren't available yet I think and there were no speaking exams in 2020&2021 as far as I remember).

Depending on the context that would be translated as ''jugaban'' or ''estaban jugando''.

I didn't do GCSE Spanish but for GCSE French I had ≈15 mins to prep before the exam I think (can't remember whether I prepared for the questions that you get asked in the general conversation or not). Probably best to check on the AQA website for GCSE Spanish (link is in OP).
