Paphos Youth Theatre is able to offer the GCSE in drama because it is largely a practical course. 60% of the work is coursework based on practical exercises while 40% is performance orientated. Some written work is required but there is no formal written examination.
GCSE in Drama is a two year course but we hope to complete the course in less. However, all parents should allow for a two year time frame.
We are offering the course at present to students in year 8 / age 12 onwards.
In order to successfully complete the GCSE in Drama, students must be prepared to undertake 3½ hrs of drama lessons per week.
