Phase 3 : IELTS Speaking Test
Phase 3 is where the final score is given to a candidate. This is the part of the test where you must excel. Do the best that you can here without trying too hard or getting yourself into problems. Although a number of sources suggest that scores are averaged between the three phases of the speaking test, this stage is where the ‘ceiling’ is established – you can’t get a higher score than your performance in phase 3.
Phase 3 is much more like a conversation between you and the assessor. Here he/she doesn’t have a script and can ask you anything he/she wants. If you go off topic, the assessor will make attempts to make sure you stay on topic – there’s no point in rehearsing a speech!
Amongst other things, in Phase 3 you will be asked to speculate about the future, give an opinion, suggest a solution to a problem, or describe a process or procedure. Try to come up with a complete answer. If you are asked how you would solve traffic problems worldwide, don’t just talk about buying more buses; consider where the money for the buses would come from, explain how you would raise the money for the buses and persuade people who to use them. This will certainly impress the assessor.
Make eye contact with the assessor. Although theoretically, you could speak great English with your head down, the fact is you may not come across as confident. Although there is no mark for confidence, you need to present yourself in a positive way as possible.
