Hey y'all. Just being officious and I've just taken the AQA Drama GCSE 18th May 2012 paper. (Well yesterday). Anyhow, I'm just curious if any one else here did it? Our class did it last year as well, and about 70-75% of the class achieved D - U's, and the majority of the country also obtained disreputable grades?
P.S - A* for the practical was ~94%! Doesn't that seem infeasible and inapt for a GCSE?
Apparently they are scaled. I thought it was a precarious exam in such that you can never determine whether you've achieved a A* ~ D.
I thought it went okay, and the same for me. I'm an A* - A student in my other subjects, yet this one ins unequivocally more strenuous and difficult. I personally think it's difficult to somehow deter people from opting for it? I know it sounds ludicrous, but that's exam-logic. ^^

Hey, how did you do in the end? I've got mine tomorrow - not a fan of this exam, I must say.
Got an A in the end - 5UMS of an A* :/
If I could recommend - look at every markscheme available to get an idea of what they want. I did that for AS drama and got full UMS. It's rather worrying that AS was easier than GCSE, but there you go.
