11 Prepare for the Personal introduction at the start of the test

Your response in the Personal introduction section of the test gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself to institutions. It is not scored, but is an additional security feature and offers some impression of you to institutions you select to receive your score report. 

You have 25 seconds to read the prompt and 30 seconds to give your response.

You cannot re-record the introduction, so think about what you will say. 

You could talk about things that interest you, or your study plans for the future, or what you want to do at the end of your studies. If you prepare for the Personal introduction, you will feel more confident when you start the test.
