Subject: Dance
How are the exams structured?

 

The written exam is in 3 sections.

Section A relates to the dancers knowledge and understanding of choreography and performance.

Section B is a critical appreciation of the dancers own performance and choreographic work.

Section C explores the 6 anthology works

Where can we find past papers etc?

 

AQA have last year’s exam paper on their website.

Students can also access mock papers written by Mrs Partridge in the lessons and in revision classes… these can also be completed for homework.

Students also have a grid with 100 possible exam questions that they can attempt.

Students will be given access to Mark Up! An online system for answering questions and having these marked by an examiner who sends back their marking, Dates for this will be released shortly.

What do we need to revise? Where should we start? The students need to revise everything about choreography, performance and the 6 anthology works. Creating large posters or que cards for each topic would be helpful and watching the anthology works on YouTube would certainly be a benefit.
What will we find in the subject folders on the secure site? There will be interactive resources for the anthology.

Posters and fact files for the anthology.

Posters for choreographic devices and performance skills

What are the most useful websites?

 

Please do not use any websites other than the anthology clips released to YouTube via AQA. It is essential that students use the correct information from definitions, explanations and discussions given in lessons. Use of websites may cause confusion. There are no AQA endorsed websites for this subject.
