Many students worry that they need to maintain eye contact with the examiner. This is a good idea in part 1 and part 3, but not necessarily in part 2.
In part 2 of the speaking test, you don't need to worry about eye contact. It's more important to look at the question and the notes you made.
- Use the question to organise what you are saying. Answer the question point by point, and make sure you cover all parts of the task.
- You should also look at your notes. Hopefully you wrote down some good ideas during the preparation time.
Remember: the examiner will not reduce your score for lack of eye contact, but he/she will reduce your score if you don't answer the question well.
