Subject and Exam Board: Drama OCR
Minimum Entry Requirement: 5+
Head of Subject: Miss C Kay
Course Description
This course allows students to participate in two performance components as either a performer
or a designer (lighting, sound, set or costume). One of these is a performance from a text, the
other a devised performance based on and influenced by their research into the work of others.
Alongside this comes the opportunity to develop high standards of academic theatrical writing
with two written exam papers.
What you will learn in Year 12 What you will learn in Year 13
Unit 1 – Practitioners in practice
September – May
120 marks | 40% | non exam assessment
Component group 1: Practitioners in practice
Students explore practically the work of theatre
practitioners and use the skills gained to
explore text and create devised theatre. They
are required to practically explore two
practitioners and an extract from a
performance text, and perform a devised piece
of drama or theatre for an audience.
This unit is built up and assessed via a final
devised performance, a research report based
on the work of the chosen practitioners and a
portfolio that documents the devising process.
Unit 2 – Analysing Performance
May- December
60 marks | 20% | 2hr 15 minutes
Component 3: Analysing performance
Students explore practically two performance
texts on a chosen theme, and analyse and
evaluate live theatre.
There is one component with two sections:
•Section A: students study two different
performing texts on a given theme and develop
knowledge and understanding of how extracts
can be rehearsed and interpreted in
performance.
The texts are as follows:
The Black Watch
Necessary Targets
•Section B: students analyse and evaluate a live
theatre performance in preparation for their
written examination paper 1.
This is a written paper assessed externally by
OCR.
Unit 3 - Exploring and performing texts
7th September- April
60 marks | 20% | non exam assessment
Component 2: Exploring and performing texts
Students explore one performance text in its
entirety and perform part of the text, applying
the relevant skills to communicate the meaning
in a performance text to an audience.
Students continue in the same role as for
component group 1:
•For performers: Performing live theatre (21)
•For designers: Designing for live theatre (31).
This is assessed externally by a visiting
examiner from the OCR examinations board.
Unit 4 - Deconstructing texts for performance
December- May
60 marks | 20% | 1hr 45minutes
Component 4: Deconstructing texts for
performance
Students will interpret and explore practically a
performance text considering how to create,
develop and direct a performance for an
audience. This runs alongside the unit;
‘Exploring and performing texts.’
Students study one performance:
•Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet
Street – Patrick Quentin/Stephen Sondheim
(45)
The set texts will be reviewed after three years
and may be subject to change. If a text is to be
removed from the list and replaced with
another text, centres will be notified a year in
advance and therefore a new text may be
chosen within the currents place.
This is a written assessment assessed externally
by OCR.
A-Level Exam Structure
60% practical exploration (two performances- scripted and devising)
40% written exploration (two written examinations- three text explorations and one theatre
review)
