Artists can make a scene

1st December 2006 at 00:00
Skilled mime artists can now use their talents to earn Ucas points, thanks to a campaign from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. From 2008, drama qualifications earned in after-school clubs will be included in the Ucas tariff for the first time, potentially allowing less academic pupils to earn university places that were out of their reach before.

The exams also cover public speaking, verse-reading, performance and acting.

"Our inclusion in the tariff will help thousands of young people applying to university to get one step closer to reaching their goal," said Daryl Lucas, Lamda's acting head of examinations.
