ASSESSMENT
There are two forms of assessment:

1 Written examination paper. There will be three sections. The paper will require responses to a pre-released text and three stimuli, and provide opportunity for reflection on, and evaluation of, the practical work.

2 Coursework. This consists of three pieces of practical work, based on the guidance provided by the CIE and continuously assesses during the course. This will provide flexibility to suit different approaches to Drama. Coursework will amount to 60% of the final mark at IGCSE.
