Students get the opportunity to take exams with the RAD & ISTD when deemed ready by their teacher. Exams are conducted by external examiners on various dates throughout the academic year. It is not compulsory to take exams, but if a student shows good ability, it is encouraged as it provides a focus and gives a sense of achievement. Students hoping to progress into further education in the performing arts benefit from internationally recognised qualifications. Senior levels also provide UCAS points for university applications.
