Producing excellent, high quality and effective resources for teachers, students and parents teaching or studying GCSE Drama.

This is more of a resource than a lesson, although you can of course deliver it as such. It is worth highlighting that the questions in every exam paper remain the same across the five set texts, only the references to the actual text change. Therefore, there is an opportunity for students to work on writing skills that is relevant to all the set texts. This might come in useful as a starting point before you start your set text, or even before you choose your set text.
So of course, use this as a whole lesson and deliver it to your students in one go. Doing so might be a good introduction once you’ve delivered the Full Exam breakdown. It might also prove to be useful doing it in this way as a revision tool closer to the exam.
We think that the best way to use this resource is to split it up into questions and/or sections and deliver the content over a much longer period. Spend time looking at each question individually, and when you do, use this resource as a starting point to discuss what knowledge and skills the students are going to need to answer the questions.
Use this resource in as many ways as possible to get the best value from it. This resource could be printed out for a display or given to students as a handout. All we ask is that you don’t modify the presentation or layout of the information.

This lesson is a breakdown of the Component 3 Written Exam for the EDUQAS GCSE Drama course.
The lesson breaks the exam down so that students understand the expectations of each section of the exam, the requirements of each of the Assessment Criteria covered in the exam and the knowledge and understanding that will be required from them to do well in the exam.
The lesson also goes through the logistics of the exam, such as the time they students have in the exam to answer the questions, how many marks there are per question and the layout of the paper.
The students are given a graphic organiser to help them take notes during the lesson and to revise from at the end of the lesson.
This is a perfect starting point from which to begin working on the Component 3 Written Exam for the EDUQAS GCSE Drama course and something which you can then refer back to, turn into displays and use as a revision tool throughout the year.
