  • Don’t repeat words. Make use of your vocabulary. Remember the better the vocabulary the better your score.
  • Make sure you sound grammatically correct.
  • Keep control of yourself. Such a question could get quite emotional for many. but remember you won’t be getting marks on how emotional you got while answering. Remember, it could be the most emotional moment of your life but you have to keep in check of your emotions while answering.
