The conference is the procedure in which the assessors are to cross-check their findings and decide whether to recommend a candidate or not. So make sure you do not take up too much time thanking them/giving them suggestions or asking for suggestions. This too is not very common, but there are candidates who ask the assessors to review them.

The conference is of little consequence for a candidate because the assessment stage is already over. However, candidates must make sure that they do not commit mistakes during their conference. The josh must be as high as it was during the screening–in time. That will bring out the liveliness in you.
