RSL Awards are proud to release a new suite of graded qualifications in Acting. PAA Acting develops candidates of all ages and levels, assessing a range of communication, interpretative and technical skills through practical assessment.
PAA Acting’s flexible delivery approach gives teachers complete creative freedom to compile scenes from plays or anthologies, adapted excerpts from novels, or even original scenes written by the candidates themselves. These can be performed in an exam as monologue(s), duologue(s) or scenes for three.Contact us
Depending on the requirements at each grade, candidates can perform scenes from plays (all grades), anthologies and adapted excerpts from novels (Premiere – Grade 5). There’s also the option to perform original scenes written by the candidates from Grades 1 – 8.
PAA encourages creativity; the performance material is chosen by the teacher or candidate(s), allowing creative freedom and the opportunity for learners to study material of particular interest to them or from their own culture.
Repertoire suggestions have been carefully compiled to provide a comprehensive and varied range of scenes/plays, as a useful starting point for teachers. We have championed authors from diverse cultural backgrounds, as well as a fair representation of gender, enabling students to feel comfortable performing or studying material which is enjoyable and relevant to them.
At all grades, candidates can enter their exam as a solo, or in twos or threes, performing monologues, duologues or scenes for three. In addition, candidates taking grades 1-8 in twos/threes, may also perform a monologue each for one of their choices.
There are three types of examination formats available across all grades to suit your learners needs: Face-to-Face examinations (schools / venues only), Live Video examinations (schools / venues only), Recorded Video examinations.
All PAA graded exams are recognised and regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). UCAS Points allocation are currently being assessed and should be available for September 2022. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
