How much are you expected to talk in an OSCE when you are doing the tasks

In the 1st part of my osce im supposed to do a urine analysis that has already been provided by the patient in the script. It's not clear to me if I'll be communicating at all with the 'patient' during this process. What do you think I should say? Would I be doing this infront of the patient, because it's not like that in actual wards I've been in.

Also when you do the APIE, are you supposed to interact with the patient at all?

Thank you

Understand the rationale behind every task that you perform in your OSCE and tell the examiner. OSCEs are not meant to be undertaken in silence. You need to tell the examiner what you're doing and why you're doing it. So if you are performing a skill and you do it in complete silence, you will fail.
