Feedback for Sample test 1:
The candidate’s pronunciation is easy to understand, and she has a wide range of vocabulary and grammatical expression used generally accurately to communicate appropriately. She speaks fluently with only natural hesitation. She demonstrates mostly appropriate register, tone and lexis for the situation and the patient. She uses a mixture of medical and lay terms as necessary, but she should avoid using the medical term ‘anterior acute myocardial infarct’, rather than ‘heart attack’ with the patient. She clarifies the situation, reassures the patient and uses active listening and appropriate information-gathering techniques. She sequences the interview purposefully and logically.
