Latest exam updates

Practical Session 3 update

We are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 3 Practical exams scheduled for  October -  December. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Music Theory Exam update – session C

We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering our Music Theory exams as usual this November. These exams will all be paper-based and available for Grades 1 to 8, using the existing ‘from 2018’ Music Theory syllabus.

First HKAPA student awarded new ABRSM scholarship

8 years ago

A gifted young pianist from Hong Kong has been awarded the first ABRSM scholarship for students at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA). Seventeen-year-old Andy Chung Hok-chun began his undergraduate studies at the Academy's School of Music at the beginning of September and will receive funding via the ABRSM scholarship for all four years of the course. Chung, who was previously a student on the HKAPA's Junior Music Programme, counts Rachmanioff, Prokofiev and Mozart among his favourite composers. Chung will study with the Academy's Head of Keyboard Studies, Professor Gabriel Kwok. ABRSM already provides scholarships for students at four of the Royal Schools of Music in the UK, but this is the first time we have offered a scholarship at a conservatoire elsewhere. Our HKAPA scholarship was established to mark 60 years of ABRSM exams in Hong Kong and celebrates our close ties with the local music education community. The award will be available annually to any young musician from Hong Kong – pianist, instrumentalist or singer – auditioning for an undergraduate place at the HKAPA, and shows the seriousness of ABRSM's ongoing support for music making in Hong Kong. "We are delighted to be supporting Andy Chung as he continues with his studies," commented Guy Perricone, ABRSM's Chief Executive, "and look forward to helping many more young and talented musicians from Hong Kong in the years to come."
