We are really proud of how hard our students work towards these qualifications. Students can begin LAMDA training as soon as they begin training with us at Allstars. Our youngest exam entrants enter with the 'Introductory steps' at four years olds, going all the way through to the Grade 8 exams that give our students UCAS points for University entry, this being a Level 3 Ofqual qualification (A'level equivalent)
