Free Choice Piece Expansion

We are still accepting music from other recognised exam boards so you can get the grade that you deserve. Music in genres other than popular music, including classical, which is set for exams of other recognised boards will be automatically accepted as free choice pieces for the equivalent grade (applicable for Piano, Keyboard, Vocals and Acoustic Guitar). These performance pieces will be assessed in the same way as our own repertoire using the published RSL Awards assessment criteria, thus maintaining our high academic standards.

Once the confirmation is received, you can sit back and relax (and practise!). We will be in contact with you about your face-to-face exam date, or your deadline date for video submission, in due course. We give a minimum of two weeks' notice before a face-to-face exam but always aim for four wherever possible. An email notification will be sent to the address on the account which made the online entry.

Want to host a private exam session?

Rockschool Private Exam Days are hosted at a venue of your choice, enabling your students to sit their Graded Exam in the comfort of a familiar setting, using equipment they are accustomed to. Students often prefer this format due to this familiarity, whilst it also reduces the amount of time spent outside of school. These exams can be done through an examiner visit or alternatively via a live-stream at the venue or direct from the student's home.

For teachers, this introduces a higher degree of flexibility as the exam date itself is not limited to specific Exam Periods, like our public examinations. All private centres are given access to discounts on official Rockschool publications, as well as additional resources and support to help make each learners experience as enjoyable as possible.
