The objective of the test is to assess the quality of your instruction and your ability to pass your knowledge on to your pupils.
Put simply, the adi part 3, is a teaching exam. The way you drove to pass your adi part 2, is now what you should be telling me that i need to do. It is to see if you have any ability as a teacher or whether you will sit there and expect me to figure it out for myself.
