COVID-19 - latest exam updates

A message from our Chief Executive – our future plans

Music Theory exam update

If you took a Music Theory exam in early March, we are working hard to make sure there is no delay to the dispatch of certificates in line with published deadlines. However, please bear with us as we process the exam papers.

Practical and Music Theory exams update

On the basis of official and local advice, we have decided to suspend all Practical and Music Theory exams outside the UK and Ireland from now until 1 July 2020, and our Representative will contact applicants with further guidance. We will update specific territories in due course in relation to exams after that date. We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your loyal support during this challenging time.
