To do acting as a career, you usually need 5 grades a-D or more. Expressive Arts subjects are usually preferred as well as the theatre or the Dance, or the Media. For most universities, when It comes to the performance, that usually look more on the talents or experiences in place of degree. Most appreciate that although their students may not be very academic you can have a good creative ability. If you have a background in drama/theater club, then make it known in your interview! When you are applying for a performance course, you will usually submit your application and will be invited to attend an interview/test. The interview is so that they can get a better understanding of what you are (personality/behavior) and of the hearing to judge your talent and suitability for the course.All in all, don't worry too much about their qualifications - if achieved simply the average of the marks don't worry, just make sure that you have the talent and confidence to blow them away in your interview/test!Good luck!Lizzy x
