Fluency & Coherence
This criterion examines how fluently you can speak at length, your ability to talk without
any pause or hesitation and self-correction. It also assesses the efficient use
of cohesive devices like pronouns, connectors, conjunctions and more. You must speak in an
accent and language that is easily understood by the examiner.
In this criterion, the examiner determines whether you use a wide range of vocabulary or
not, try to convey the meaning in different words and use less common vocabulary. The usage
of collocations and paraphrasing at the proper place is also taken into consideration. You must
avoid errors while speaking.
Range & Accuracy
Here, your formation of sentences i.e. sentence structures and proper application of grammar
is determined. The structures must be set so accurately that their use sounds natural and
appropriate while you talk.
Your ability to use intonation (i.e. rise and fall of the voice while speaking) and the way
you pronounce any word is taken into account. Your accent must be such that it is clearly
understood by the examiner.
