Latest exam updates

Music Theory results – update 6 April

Practical Session 2 - Update

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners And 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 1 Practical exams scheduled for September - October. 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 https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Music Theory Exam update – session two

On the basis of government advice, we are cancelling the Music Theory exams due to take place later in 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your ongoing loyalty and support.

Working with the London Music Fund

We sponsor the London Music Fund's Scholarships programme, which enables dedicated children across London to learn a musical instrument for a sustained period of four years. Our partnership focusses on developing further opportunities for the young players to work together and perform.

We support and design three 'Playing Days' each year, bringing the scholars together for a day-long workshop to help them develop creative musical skills and perform at prestigious venues in London.
