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.

On 7 July 2017, we saw hundreds of people come together to celebrate music and music education at our Shine event held at London's iconic Barbican centre.

There we celebrated the best of music education and were joined by over 200 young performers. At the event, we saw hundreds of people get excited and celebrate music-making and music education. We wanted to continue to highlight the skills and benefits that people from all walks of life have experienced #BECAUSEOFMUSIC, which is why we launched the new Because of Music website.

We hope you'll be inspired by the stories that we will feature here in the coming weeks and months, and if you have anything to contribute, join us! Share your #BECAUSEOFMUSIC story on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you could be selected to feature on the website.
