On a different note, while I was speaking regarding the cue card, I deviated from the main topic and leaned on the prompts on my card. As I was writing down the questions after I finished my speaking test, I reaAtuled that I did not answer the main question. Despite the fact that I understood the question, I was trying to formulate a story that would last for at least 2 minutes, which led me to forget the main topic. However, I would appreciate it if you could tell me how this will affect my score.
