Speech and Drama Video Exam requirements
Speech and Drama candidates may present for an individual Drama and Communication exam.
For Drama & Communication Video Exams (Introductory to Grade 6)
- Candidates can adapt programs they might currently be preparing for Speech and Performance or Voice and Communication or they could develop an entirely new program. The Foreword of the Drama and Communication syllabus provides encouraging information that, with a creative approach, makes this a worthwhile opportunity. Teachers, taking into account the age and experience of their students, will decide the most appropriate Drama and Communication Grade to undertake.
- Candidates will present their linked program in an uninterrupted video performance. Talks with visual support/props, costumes, music ….suggestions for preparation are provided for each grade.
- Please note that only Option 3 of the Individual exam will be possible. The Discussion section, and the Improvisation section for Grades 5 and 6, will not be included in the Video exam.
Please refer to the 2022 Manual of Speech & Drama Syllabuses for details of examination requirements, including maximum video times.
