OCR Drama mock exam analysis

OCR Drama mock exam analysis

(0)
This power point was created for my year 11 Drama GCSE students after they completed the 2019 OCR Drama exam as a mock. It goes through each question of the 2019 paper, discussing mistakes made by the students, how they should have answered the questions and giving model answers. The paper was answered using Blood Brothers as a set text and for Section B the model answer is based on the play ‘The Woman in Black’ but will be helpful for any student of OCR Drama who wants help on how to structure answers and what the examiners are looking for. You may want to adapt this power point for your students as some of it is quite personal to my class.
