    My Drama GCSE is approaching soon and it's 35% of my final grade. I am not very good at drama, I think I am currently at about a C which disappoints me more than you can imagine. I want to be receiving As or even A* s in drama as I would want to continue it for A Levels, but I find it hard to come out of my shell.
    We're doing a 'Hard to Swallow' workshop soon and I want to achieve a high grade, but my teacher made it seem like it was impossible to get an A* as only 1 person of 2 classes got an A* in a previous year. My question is: Has anyone done this, and if so please give me so tips. And also please give me some tips on how to be more open and out of your shell.

    Firstly you need to calm yourself.

    When you're performing, normally you have the stage lights on which stops you seeing the audience so don't panic and 'come out of your shell'.

    If you want to be achieving those high grades (A/A*) it's essential and most likely obligatory for you to come out of your 'shell'. Those top actors do stuff they don't want to do for fame and money and to prove themselves as actors.

    If you're a shy person, you can't expect to do multiple 'shy' roles and get high grades. You need to try different genres and roles.

    I did this play (not as a performance, as an activity for exploring some genre) but I can't remember anything about what I saw or did.
