minute presentation task and a discussion task.
The presentation can be about a topic of your choice. You can use notes during the presentation and will submit these as part of the assessment. It’s wise to choose a topic that you’re passionate about and feel confident speaking on.
The discussion task will be on a subject chosen by your assessor. The assessor will be looking for candidates who listen to their peers as well as contribute to the discussion to the best of their ability.
