Graded Examinations in Performance: Acting
(Solo/Duologue) and (Combined - Levels 1 and 2 only)

Purpose of the Qualification

LAMDA examinations in Acting are designed to develop the skills necessary to communicate dramatic text to an audience.

Learners who prepare themselves appropriately will develop:

1 Interpretative skills
2 Technical skills
3 Knowledge of the performance process

Broad Objectives of the Qualification
1 Interpretative skills
Learners will be required:
• to explore style, form, character, subtext and context in order to realise the specific demands of the text
• to suspend disbelief by focusing on the immediacy of the character and situation in order to create a credible sense of reality.

2 Technical skills
Learners will be required:
• to build skills in voice, diction and movement in order to realise the specifics of
character and situation.

3 Knowledge of the performance process
Learners will be required:
• to understand character, situation, staging, context, subtext, style and period
movement where applicable
• to understand the key principles of the acting process according to Stanislavski, Brecht or Edward Gordon Craig.


The qualification is available at four levels, in line with the Qualifications and Credit Framework.

Entry Level (Entry 3) Entry Level Level 1 Grades 1, 2, 3
Level 2 Grades 4 and 5
Level 3 Grade 6 – Bronze Medal, Grade 7 –Silver Medal,
Grade 8 – Gold Medal

Graded Examinations in Performance:

• Solo (one learner) – where the learner performs alone
• Duologue (two learners) – where learners perform all scenes together
• Combined (two learners) – where learners perform one solo scene each and one duologue (not available at Entry Level or Level 3)

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria are set at each level, often covering a range of grades (for example Level 1 covers Grades 1, 2 and 3). However, there is still a qualitative difference in outcome between individual grades within each level. This is because:

• the repertoire chosen by the learner should increase in linguistic and technical
difficulty as the grades progress
• the knowledge required for the set discussion increases in technical difficulty as the grades progress.
