After completing Part One (usually after 4-5 minutes) the examiner will move onto Part Two of the speaking test.
In Part Two the examiner gives the candidate a topic card and the candidate has one minute to prepare and make notes. After the one minute preparation time the candidate is required to talk about the topic for between one and two minutes (as a rule you are expected to speak for at least 1 minute 30 seconds anything less than this and your “Fluency” score may be reduced).
Candidates do not need to worry about ‘timing’ in Part Two because the examiner will stop the candidate when the clock hits two minutes.
The best strategy in Part Two is to keep talking until the examiner says stop. Candidates are naturally nervous in this part of the test so it is not good to try to guess the time.
