      from my practice oral i was asked to read a poem, describe a srathpictuir (they will ask you 3 questions, you will then ask them 3 questions), a few questions about my self like family, what i want to do after school like college and such, you know basica questions about yourself and your future. A tip. When they ask you a question like whats your favourite show/book etc, talk about it as much as you can. the more you talk, the more time you take up which is good. Hope this helped?

      it also depends on what level you do, im not too sure but i think with Foundation, Ordinary and Higher level the layout of the Oral could be different to Higher level.

      When you first go in you will be asked your name, age, birthday, where you live and your exam number. Then you will read the examiner a poem. You will do your scraith pictuir and after you will talk about what you are like as a person, your house and area, your school, Ty, School trip/Holiday in the past, Sports you play, Your past times (x2) If you've ever had a part time job, What you hope to do when you go to collage, what you are doing for the Summer and What you did for Easter Break. Erm.. That's all I have in my notes I think? Best of luck!
