Now that you know Extempore Topics 2018, let us learn how you can prepare for these topics.


Why Extempore?
B- Schools are now widely employing extempore as a part of their selection process because of its impromptu nature, which pulls out a candidate out of his/her comfort zone. Through extempore they usually test your presence of mind, flow of thought, speaking skills, and way of presenting your ideas in a scenario with limited time and under pressure. So in order to do well in extempore we have mentioned a few points.

Extempore Speech Tips:

  • Prepare well: Though extempore means no preparation however, for any provided topic take some time to structure your oration. Note down the key points quickly to elaborate later.
  • Structure: The structure could be like an essay: an introduction then main content followed by a conclusion at the end. This helps to maintain continuity of the speech.
  • Multi dimensional approach: Try to take a neutral instance by assessing both the sides of the topic. Speaking unilaterally does not create a positive impact.
  • Time Management: As the time is short, mange it effectively. Practice regularly by keeping a timer.
  • Tone: The tone should be audible and engaging. Do not rush through the content; take pauses when required.
