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.

Available now

Printed Practice Papers

You are now able to buy printed Practice Papers and Model Answers for the revised exams at Grades 1 to 5. These are available from our online shop, or from your local music retailer. The papers are based on real questions from the 2017 exams, adjusted to reflect the revised question formats in papers taken by all candidates from January 2018.

We have also changed the name of these resources from Past Papers to Practice Papers, as we think this a clearer way to describe them.
