LAMDA (London Academy Music and Dramatic Art) is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding bodies. LAMDA has been offering practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 130 years. In this time, LAMDA's qualifications have helped hundreds of thousands of candidates of all ages and abilities to develop lifelong skills.

LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognizing and rewarding the endeavors of each individual – but they are also about empowerment. LAMDA's ultimate aim is to provide all people with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.

At the heart of LAMDA examinations is the recognition that our qualifications are for everyone. Across the globe, LAMDA's examinations unite learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, and cultures in enthusiasm for the English language and a desire to develop skills for life.

Learners who prepare themselves appropriately will develop:

✰ Interpretative Skills
The learner will be required to learn the words of a poem and recall them aloud.

Technical Skills
