Speak fluently with natural pauses as the sentence requires. Try to avoid pauses in undesirable positions in the sentence.
Avoid sounds like “uhm”, “mmmm” for thinking when you speak. Take time to think and formulate sentences in your head before you start speaking.

Why are you interested in Job?
How did you get to the test venue?
Why do you think you would be good for the job?
In addition, they may ask you about other things, which will not be difficult to answer. Candidates have nothing to worry as this test is only to assess your communication and not your knowledge. You may also be asked to read aloud the content written on a piece of paper.
