Level 3 Drama
Students undertaking study in drama at level three can be expected to perform in full public performances, and must be willing to put time into reflection and preparation of written work, as well as developing performance and technical skills. The level three course develops students’ skills of presentation and is useful for students wishing to undertake further study in the theatre, in English, in film, or in broadcasting.
Scholarship builds on the performance and reflection skills of the level three course and requires students to present for camera, three pieces of work.
Students with strong performance skills are encouraged to attempt the scholarship exam.
