Another important skill that the performers must demonstrate is their ability to stay focused: their ability as a performer to remain concentrated during the dramatic action. Things can go wrong in a piece, especially when someone isn't concentrating or focused and fully in role. This is obvious to the examiner. If something should go wrong, the students must be able to get themselves back on track whilst remaining in character. Students should not 'play to the audience' if it alters their intended portrayal of their character. For this reason it is always wise to do a dress rehearsal performance to parents/ peers before the examiner sees it. Also note, that whilst it is a performance to an audience, it is still an exam and the importance of this should be made clear to the students and the audience.
