Latest exam updates

COVID update

In response to the current restrictions in the UK and Ireland we are deferring Session 1 face-to-face practical exams at Public Venues and paper-based Grade 6 to 8 Music Theory exams at Public Venues and Private Visits. Where we can we will still offer practical exams at Private Visits. Our remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams and our Grade 1 to 5 online Music Theory exams are unaffected and all dates remain unchanged. To read more, please visit our latest updates page.

Performance Grade booking

The next booking period for remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams opens on 1 February. For details, see our dates and fees page.

Certificate amendment and replacement service

Where there are errors on a certificate or a certificate has been damaged or lost we can provide a replacement for a fee. You can find information about fees on our Dates and Fees page.

Due to the current closure of our offices, this service will take longer than normal. Please allow up to one month to receive your replacement certificate once you’ve made the request. If we are no longer able to print and distribute certificates at any point we will provide a further update on our website.

Please note:

  • We will not reissue certificates from the current exam session until 28 days after the original despatch date to allow for any delivery delays.
  • We will only confirm results to the applicant (the person who booked the exam) and the candidate (if they have an ABRSM account), for a period of eight weeks from their original despatch (see our Information and Regulations, 17f).
