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.

We will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. Exact dates will be announced soon. Please check here for more information.

Music Theory exam dates

We can now confirm Grade 6 to 8 paper Music Theory exams will go ahead on Wednesday 28 April at 5pm. The booking period will be open from 8 to 15 March.

An effective practitioner is a reflective practitioner

The Becoming a Better Music Teacher course provides ideas on how to improve your teaching strategies and skills. On this course, you will learn to assess your current teaching and look at new ways to engage your students during their lesson. How do we plan a lesson? What do we need to consider, other than the practical implications of the room, the online learning technical requirements, the number of students and access to resources? We asked teachers for their tips on lesson planning. Do you have more that you would add to this list? Email us at [email protected] and let us know
