      It's optional if you do it in the JC, but you have to do it for the LC.

      There are 180 marks going for the oral in total:

      10 for greeting (saying hello, smiling as you come in, how you present yourself, etc.)

      30 for rolghlacadh (roleplay) there are eight advertisements, the examiner picks one and you have to pretend you're inquiring about it and you have to ask the examiner ten specific questions about it

      40 for sraith pictiur- you've heard of these obviously, there are 5, examiner picks one and you describe it

      80 for general conversation- just a basic chat about your life

      Hope I'm not forgetting anything, and I heard somewhere that some schools don't follow this layout at all, but this is the official way it's supposed to be done. Hope it helps :)
