EDEXCEL Unit 3: I am a parent of a student who wants to take A level drama; was told he was very good; got a part in the school performance (mainly 6th formers) singled out after the run as a notable perrformer. A* in unit 2. Nothing below a b in all his other gcse's. Was told after his examined performance was of A level standard - marked as a D. He was gutted I have advised him to drop DRAMA at A - level. EDEXCEL are taking money on false pretence here a sham, piracy. DRAMA here is disreputable. Schools should all appeal then drop edexcel - too late for these poor pupils though.
