It is a requirement of this qualification for students to experience live theatre in person as a member of the audience in the same performance space as the performers. Centres must make every effort possible for students to see live performance in this manner and confirm that they have done so to Pearson. Centres are free to make these live theatre arrangements at any time during the delivery of the qualification before Component 3 is taken.

To ensure that this requirement is met, centres are required to submit a live performance statement. This must be submitted to Pearson at the beginning of the year of certification using the online form below to inform us of your centre’s text choices.

If there are extreme extenuating circumstances regarding the access to live theatre, for example the occurrence of natural disasters or students are hospitalised, then centres need to apply for special arrangements to allow for a suitable live theatre alternative such as NT live or other live theatre broadcast – to apply, please contact drama.assessment@pearson.com.

Centres are reminded that if they do not submit a statement then it may result in malpractice/maladministration (for more information, please refer to the specification).
