Following the introduction of the online visiting examiner request form for GCSE (9-1) Drama last year, we are now introducing this form for A Level Drama and Theatre for first teaching from September 2019.
Instead of leaving the date selection open across the entire exam period, you will be able to choose from week-long exam slots, and there will be alternative exam time options available. This will make it more likely you get your preferred choice of exam dates and times.
The new A Level Drama and Theatre online visiting examiner request form will be available via the Drama qualification page from 28 August.
Once we receive your preferred slots and times, they will be reviewed alongside the availability of examiners in your area. You will then receive a confirmed exam date from your allocated examiner by the end of January.
We understand the complex organisation that goes into preparing this non-exam assessment, and recognise how early centres start their preparation. We have therefore moved the submission deadline of this form to 1 November.
By receiving the exam date requests much earlier, we hope to avoid the need for any last-minute changes to exam dates.
