    What is A-level drama like? Is it easy? Do you need to take an exam or something?

    That probably depends on the exam board. I'm doing AQA and we have a 3 hour exam at the end on 2 set texts and a live performance we have seen.

    Hi, thanks for commenting. For the past few years my auditions haven't been bad as I've managed to get through to shows e. c. t. However, im really struggling with monologues for some reason and i just don't understand why.

    I also do A level drama. If you feel like your acting is bad, then you can have the exam and coursework to boost your grades. Idk how it is for your exam board but for me, the exam is the majority of our grade

    I would say that with monologues, reading the whole play is important to understand that character and their role in it. Changing your physicality in some way really helps you become your character. One technique is Lecoq’s animalism. You pick an animal that best suites your character. Then there’s 5 stages. At stage 5 you’re completely your animal and as you go to stage 1, you’re human but what’s meant to happen is that you keep certain mannerisms that would be associated with that animal.

    Another technique which I learnt from my NYT audition is to think of the thoughts of your character. Once you have the thought, you will naturally act in a certain way, rather than have a set way of acting an emotion.
