Drama - updated National 5 specimen question pape-

Following the 2023 exam diet, we have updated section 1 of the National 5 Drama specimen question paper to include the following description on page 6:

‘Consider a performance one other drama student has taken part in during your course as either an actor or in a production role.’

This provides clarity and differentiates between questions that assess the candidate’s ability to evaluate their own work and those that assess their ability to evaluate the work of others.

You can access the updated specimen question paper from the ‘Past Papers and Marking Instructions’ tab on our National 5 Drama webpage.

The change will also be reflected in the 2024 National 5 Drama question paper.
