The UK government has announced that from 5 January 2021 new national restrictions will apply to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Due to the current national lockdowns across the UK, RSL Graded Music and PAA face-to-face exams scheduled for January will be rescheduled.

You can view postponed exam dates below. Alternatively, please contact us to change your exam to a video exam.

We encourage all candidates to consider changing to a Video Exam which is available as Performance Certificate or Graded Certificate. The latter is a variation of the standard Grade Exam, adapted to video submission. Please see our guidance on Video Exams for details.

We would like to thank all candidates, parents and teachers for their understanding and collaboration in these challenging times.
