Any 'adjective' to be used in this sentence, please?
Is it possible to use any adjective to describe one's behaviour or even facial gestures when we know these could impress the interviewer, say, in an speaking test (resulting in a better mark)?
'...even the body language you use and your facial gestures could be ................. in/on the mark!'
I think it's possible to say it will impress the interviewer, but what if I want to use the word mark or score? Could any adjective like 'impressive' or 'influential' fit in the blank above?

The only words that go before "on the mark" are "right", "bang" and "smack", in BrE. You definitely can't say "your facial gestures could be impressive on the mark".

Firstly, I would say "your" mark/score. You could say "even your facial gestures could have an influence on your mark" or "could influence your score". I don't think "could be influential" sounds natural.
