Drama or History for GCSEWatch
I didn't do Drama GCSE but two of my friends did, however I did do History.
One of my best friends did costume and she really enjoyed it. She had to come up with costumes for her group, consisting of 6 actors; she sourced 4 costumes from shops and customised them and then made the other two costumes from scratch. Saying this, I know other girls that literally just bought all of their groups costumes online. It also involves building a portfolio which she said was quite hard work but pays off in the end and lastly you have to perform a 5 minute speech with a script.
Makeup seems just the same except obviously you have to do your groups makeup as opposed to their costumes.
I just finished my History GCSE and loved it. It's very different to Drama; in Drama, there is no final written exam but instead written coursework as well as the final performance. My History course had 3 exams and just 1 piece of coursework but was still rewarding.
Good luck with your choices and feel free to ask me any further questions!
(I studied both history and drama GCSE last year so feel free to ask any more questions )
Hope that helps you to decide!
I did both GCSEs and i got an A in both.
Are you doing any humanities subjects? If not, then chose Drama. If your thinking of doing history a level, then choose history at GCSE.
Drama is so fun!!
The best thing about it is that there is no exam, only coursework and it's pretty easy because you can plan at home and then write in class. The hardest part for drama is the last exam which is in year 11, where the exam board give you a theme and you have to create a play based around that theme and an external examiner will come to watch yor play on the day of the exam so it is one shot. PM me for any more questions
