Oral Exam - Preparation

Student Instructions

Work in groups of three – one examiner, one candidate and one external examiner.

The candidate draws a topic (see below) and gets 10 minutes to brush up on his/her knowledge. The examiner and external examiner will spend this time noting down questions. Remember, it is your job to get the student to show what he/she knows. Help them get started and ask questions to help them out when they are stuck, but the candidate should try to present what they know freely without being too dependent on the examiner's questions.

The examiner asks questions and tries to get the candidate to speak as much as possible. The external examiner evaluates the candidate – the level of knowledge, communication skills and vocabulary. Print out this table to help you in the evaluation. Oral Assessment Form

Each examination should last for about 5 minutes.

Change roles and repeat the exam so that all members of the group take turns to be the candidate, the examiner and the external examiner. (Each candidate should get a different topic)
