    you don't need GCSE's to go to drama school, schools like RADA, Guildhall, LAMDA..Don't care about what grades you have you could be a hobo on the street, they just care about - talent.

    however schools like central, rose bruford ask for A Levels and GCSE's but I'm 100% sure they make some exceptions for a fact and also stuff like BTEC's etc.

    Here's something copied from the central website.
    Minimum entry requirements are 2 Cs at A Level, minimum of 3 Cs at GCSE and selection by audition. ‘Normal’ offers may be higher than this and depend upon expected grades and audition performance.

    No. Look at his/her reputation.
    your username appears to be wrong. it says critic instead of idiot.

    Are you being serious? I know two people that enrolled in an acting school without a GCSE in Drama?

    You should find your nearest colleges/schools. Compare the courses etc, and I would highly reccomend you attend their opening events! It'll be the best opportunity you'll have to ask any questions relating to entry into acting etc.

    If you aren't sure on your path, try Connexions. They'll be able to advise you in the best route to take.

    I'm pretty certain that Keira Knightley doesn't have a GCSE in Drama. In fact, she starred in Bend it Like Beckham without even having any GCSEs.

    you're such a cretin :rofl2:

    what about hollywood stars that didnt study in the UK for GCSEs
    what about hollywood stars that didnt even live in the time when GCSEs were the exmainations?

    most people dont know at the age of 13/14 that they want to go to drama school so probably never picked it for GCSE

    tit.

    You can take a-level drama without having done any drama previously... I did.

    then again I was a production candidate and used a-level drama in my gap year to earn a few extra ucas points. it did involve a bit of acting, but they allowed me on the course and I ended up getting an A for a-level drama having never done anything before.

    I think if you are serious enough about acting you'll get involved in school productions and plays, maybe even a local amateur dramatics group?

    Your right, in some sixth forms u only need a gcse in english to apply for drama/thearter arts.

    Then build your way up from there i.e. drama school, university.
