LAMDA Examinations

See Teacher Profiles for Price

As a means of studying Speech and Drama Elvin Acting takes pupils through LAMDA Examinations. Normally, to prepare for an exam we would organise a regular class for half an hour or an hour at a regular time once a week. Each pupil is an individual, so preperation time will differ in each case as I wish the student to be as comfortable as possible when entering an examination situation. Exams can be taken from 5 years old through to Adult diplomas. 

 

LAMDA offer a wide range of examinations including Speaking Of Verse and Prose, Acting, Mime, Reading For Performance, Devised Performance, Spoken English and Public Speaking.

 

The Speaking examinations are taken individually but the Performance examinations may be taken individually or with a partner.

 

LAMDA also offer group examinations in Speaking, Acting and Devised Performance. Through a range of examinations their mission at LAMDA is to: Improve standards of communication through the spoken word. Develop an appreciation for literature and drama. Provide a framework through which individuals can develop. Support the creative, social and intellectual development of an individual. Build confidence and self esteem. Enable students to acquire skill certification. Through examination provide a record of personal achievement.

 

The examinations are split into 4 main levels:

  • Introductory Examinations (Minimum Age 5)

  • Entry Level (Minimum Age 8)

  • Level 1 (Foundation) - Grades 1-3

  • Level 2 (Intermediate) - Grade 4-5

  • Level 3 (Advanced) - Grades 6-8 which are also known as Bronze,Silver and Gold Awards.

 

After students have reached Grade 8, they can then continue to study towards their diplomas. These are:

  • The LAMDA Certificate in Speech and Drama (P.CERT.LAM)

  • The LAMDA Diploma in Speech and Drama Education (LSDE)

Students can also be entered for the LAMDA Communication Award and the LAMDA Performance Award. LAMDA Examinations are accredited by the QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority) providing nationally recognised qualifications.
