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.

Where the repertoire lists include an arrangement or transcription, you should use the edition listed; in all such cases the abbreviation ‘arr.’ or ‘trans.’ appears in the entry.
For all other pieces, the editions quoted in the repertoire lists are recommendations only and you can use any edition of their choice (in- or out-of-print or downloadable).
All own-choice repertoire should exist in a published edition (either in print or downloadable), which you should indicate on the programme form.
To be eligible for an ARSM exam, candidates need to have passed ABRSM Grade 8 in the instrument being presented. A number of alternative qualifications are also accepted in place of an ABRSM Grade 8. Similarly, a Grade 8 in a closely-related instrument is accepted. For more information about the prerequisite, please see the FAQ page.
For more information on how ARSM moves candidates on from Grade 8, here's an explanatory video.
