Cambridge International AS & A Level Drama encourages learners to develop their skills in performing, devising and researching a wide range of theatrical styles and genres. They learn to communicate with an audience through practical and creative work on performance texts and their own devised material, both as individuals and in groups. Underpinned by theoretical and practical study, they learn to research, analyse, create and interpret, and to become skilled, well-informed and reflective theatrical practitioners who enjoy drama.
Cambridge International AS & A Level Drama provides a foundation for the further study of drama or related courses in higher education.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
From June 2021 you will need to prepare and submit work to us using eSubmission for component 04. This includes removing the need to submit an attendance register or declaration of originality as these will now be handled within the eSubmission system. For more information refer to the Administrative guide for subjects using eSubmission.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that Grade Descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020 or 2021.
Publication of grade descriptions for these syllabuses has been delayed. This is to make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the full range of candidate performance after the 2020 and 2021 series.
From 2020, we have made some changes to the wording and layout of the front covers of our question papers to reflect the new Cambridge International branding and to make instructions clearer for candidates - learn more.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
