This would be allowed in some cases but the non-assessed actors should not outnumber those being assessed. Instances where additional performers might be allowed include a group piece where a minor part needs to be filled, or an individual piece where the candidate requires a sleeping partner. However, a school production of a play, for example, where the candidates being assessed form part of a larger cast would not be acceptable. The piece must be performed specifically for the purposes of IGCSE Drama coursework. Schools are welcome to ask if they would like further advice on the use of non-assessed actors.
