Students often panic because they hold unreal expectations of the task, which they feel they cannot live up to. Some feel they must emulate the lecturer, forgetting that lecturers’ skills are built up through experience and (in some cases) training. Typical problems associated with this areas are of students spending too much time on research and too little on preparing the talk; building up too much information to use, and reluctance to edit material down to what can be delivered in the time available. As a result, students arrive with too much information and they are confronted with the difficult task of editing on the spot.
