Hello everyone This has been a bone of contention in my school recently. We have target grades that are set by FFT data using the 'Creative Grade' column. Clearly, students do not have a previous track record in Drama so these grades can often be completely different to a student's ability in Drama. Therefore, without wishing to go off on a tangent about this particular aspect of school life, there is an argument that students should have to audition or at the very least, that the Drama department should be able to vet in some way the students who are taking GCSE Drama in Year 10 every year. By doing this, the argument is that the students who actually can do the subject and possess some ability in acting will be able to get themselves a decent grade for their GCSE. The other issue with this as a teacher is that if students are doing it who are actually good at it, it may give them a chance at attaining their target grade, which clearly helps everyone. So, in short, my question is.... are you fully inclusive allowing anyone to take the course regardless? Or do you have a selection criteria? I would be very interested to hear from as many of you as possible. Thank you in advance.
