PART 3 PICTURE TIPS 1.  You will not receive preparation time so begin describing Picture A immediately 2.  If you don’t know the name of something, try to explain it in other words 3. For Picture B, only answer the questions that the examiner asks you

PART 3 – DISCUSSION

You will take part in an interactive discussion of general aviation topics related to the pictures, and how aviation affects the wider world. 

The examiner will discuss these topics with you to allow you to show your ability to give opinions, speculate about the future and justify

your ideas.

Listen to the candidate taking part in the Discussion:

PART 3 DISCUSSION TIPS

1.

Try to connect your ideas and explain yourself.  When you do not expand on opinions

or statements, the examiner may ask you to explain what you mean.  Be prepared to

interact with the examiner.

2.

Long confusing answers are not as good as shorter, more informative ones!

3.

If you do not understand a question, demonstrate that you can clearly ask for help –

the examiner will explain anything you ask about, and it is a sign of good interactions.
