COVID-19 - 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.

About our assessments

Our assessments are an effective and reliable way to motivate learners. They provide carefully structured syllabus requirements, progressive goals to work towards, an objective evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses in a learner’s performance and recognition for achievement.

Preparing for and taking these exams encourages learners to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding, something that provides a foundation for future musical learning and activities of all kinds.

NEW Performance Grades

In addition to our Practical Grades, and other assessments listed below, we now offer Performance Grades for instrumental and singing subjects at Grades 1 to 8. In these exams, candidates present a continuous programme of four pieces or songs with the assessment including a focus on the performance as a whole.
