Hey! So I'm currently in my first year of my A Level Drama and Theatre Studies qualification on the AQA exam board. Have any of you found any revision materials for it? I'm really struggling to find any but I'd really appreciate it if you could give me any ideas x

I’m studying Caucasian Chalk Circle and Metamorphosis so unfortunately I’m not studying the same as you. Do you have any tips though?

Ah I did Chalk Circle for one of our performances, I was Azdak !

Definitely look at the resources on AQA like the example student responses, they help a lot. For each character in the plays make sure you have an idea (and a sketch) of what their costume is. I have a folder for Antigone and I have a costume sketch for each character, and a sketch for set, as well as annotations on most pages of the play so you don't have to randomly make up facial expressions etc ahaha.

Also as you're in the first year, when you come to doing your final performances and stuff next year make sure you have a logbook of what you do each rehearsal. Sometimes I forgot and when I was writing my reflective report I had to sit for ages to think about what I did ahaha

Good luck !!

We’re thinking either Creon Or Antigone, as they haven’t been on the A2 papers since 2014, just the AS ones! The chorus came up in 2014 and 2016, and Haemon in 2016 so it could be him ahhhh
So stressed hahaha
I find it so hard to put in context throughout instead of just in my introduction so I’m trying to focus on that too !! How do you feel for live performance as well?

Hi, sorry I know this was a year ago now, but I'm in lower sixth studying drama and I'm doing the same plays as you. Have you got any tips on revision, or any materials online, especially for Yerma I can't seem to find it anywhere. Thanks!
