Today i had speaking exam, the questions asked were:Part 1: hometown
famous person
Part 2: Describe an event which made you laugh
Part 3: Are comedy shows popular in your country
Importance of laughing
In part 2, I went blank and i was not able to think of any real event, therefore i made an hypothetical story. Later on when i came back home i realized that anyone can easily find that it was a fake story. Will that affect much on my scoring? Will I be penalized for the silly answer?
