In role-plays, the most important thing is to get your message across, so that a French-speaking person would understand. Of course, you should try to be as accurate as possible, but small mistakes will not always lose marks.
You will also need to ask questions, as well as give answers.
To do well at higher level, you will need to to be accurate and fluent. You will also have to deal with the unexpected, give explanations and communicate opinions, ideas and feelings. You will also be expected to use different verb tenses and have a wide range of vocabulary.
