I'm looking for some guidance/opinions about doing LAMDA and dance exams, particularly in the context of uni applications and UCAS points. I have been dancing for 8 years and am currently in year 12. Next nov/dec I will be taking a dance exam in either grade 5 or 6(my teacher thinks I have a good shot of getting a merit/distinction in grade 5 but perhaps only a pass in grade 6) but as grade 6 gives you ucas points I was wondering whether I'd be better off going for grade 6 and getting a lower grade. Also, despite never doing lamda before, my teacher says that I can easily get ucas points by doing a grade 6 public speaking exam this summer.
Sorry for all the waffle but my question is, when applying to top universities, will having grade 6 in dance or LAMDA give me an advantage? Will these extra ucas points matter? Also, I won't recieve my dance results until after I've submitted my application, so will they still be considered?
