Latest exam updates

Change to online Music Theory exam date – 12 December 2020

We are delaying our first online Music Theory exams for Grades 1 to 5 in Singapore. These exams will now take place on 12 December 2020 (not 7 November as published previously). The new booking period for these exams will be: 26 October to 9 November.  We are delaying these exams to ensure we offer the best exam experience for candidates. The later exam date will also give candidates more time to prepare and familiarise themselves with the new exam questions. Find out more about online Music Theory.

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  26 August – 30 September. 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.

Singapore office closure and update on Practical session 1 results

On government advice, we will continue to work from home during Phase 2 and possibly into Phase 3. We will therefore be unable to answer telephone calls during this time. If you need to contact us please email [email protected]

Unfortunately, hard copy results for Practical Session 1 exams, specifically 16-19 March, will be delayed due to the office closure. We are sorry for the delay and will send these out as soon as we have access to the office.
