    I don't understand your question?

    Are you learning question 1 section a off by heart?

    If someone else has already answered this, my apologies. Apparently this year we have to learn two moments for Section A (except of course question 1). I'm not sure if the same applies for Sections B and C though.

    Strange as it may seem, I'd advise just memorising your answers to the best of your ability because the questions, despite how they're worded, are pretty much the same every year.

    Is anyone else still deliberating over whether to do section B or section c?

    We have two different teachers; the one who taught us section A is brilliant but section b/c woman is rubbish.

    I've decided I'm definitely doing the section where you analyse your own performance (forgotten which one that is but think it's B). I think for section A it will ask for 2 moments, but plan for 3 just in case (aka have a backup)- but remember that moments do not necessarily correspond to quotations- you should still be using at least 3 quotes for section A qus 2-4 and between 3-5 for section B Hope that's of any use!

    Thanks. Do you mean quotes from the deviced piece we did?

    Have you got any tips for section B?

    Yes, so section A will be quotes from your devised piece and Section B will be quotes from your scripted piece (I believe it works that way in every school?)
    For section B, we have set structures that we get taught to use but as a general rule it's just really important to ensure you're fully explaining your vocal and physical skills- especially when you comment on gestures they need to be explained well enough that the examiner could effectively copy what you did from how you explain it.
    Also, in general it is vital you adapt your answers using key words from the questions- our teacher said often people are too rehearsed for drama, but the difference between the B/A answers and the A* ones is the linking back to what they are asking.
    Time management is also really, really important in this exam so ensure you have enough time for the 2 20 mark answers!
    Hope that helps at all

    Thanks it does. We've never been told about this quoting thing!

    It didn't necessarily say a 'scene' I can't remember the exact wording (said either extract or section i think) so I did the first two scenes and counted it as the 'introduction'. I mean if you did the opening and final scene you may lose a few for not reading the question, it depends what scenes you did
