About the Group Acting exam

Our Group Acting exams are a great way to get an entire class involved, building camaraderie as they take their exam together. 

Groups can be made up of between three and 15 learners, all performing together. 

Scenes are not set, which means that they can be picked to suit the specific needs and numbers of the group. Each member speaks enough dialogue that they are able to fully establish their character in the scene. 

Teamwork is essential. The group is graded as a whole, receiving one collective result for all their hard work.  

This is a non-regulated examination.
