Following the government's recent announcement, we’ve received many enquiries about whether exams can still be taken this term.
We want all our students to achieve their goals, so we’re delighted to announce that we have added a new UK and Ireland exam period between 17th August – 30th September 2020! These exams will follow strict government guidelines and will apply to all Graded Music Exams.
You will have the option of entering for a recorded video exam, or a live face to face exam. Please remember, we are also accepting free choice pieces from other examination boards.
