How to book digital instrumental and singing exams

Performance Grades and ARSM diplomas

For these exams candidates video record their performance and submit the video to us for assessment. You can choose where and when to record the exam, as long as the location meets our requirements. You can check requirements here.

Booking periods and exam sessions

We offer booking periods and exam sessions every month. When you book, you select an exam submission deadline from a list of dates available in the forthcoming session.

  • The submission deadline is the latest date by which you must upload and submit the video recording.
  • Candidates can record their exam video at any time, and then submit it as soon as they’ve booked an exam.
  • We have a set number of submission slots available in each session. These are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Late booking

It may be possible to make late bookings, if slots are available. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to book an exam at this stage. Late booking usually opens around one week after booking has closed.

Rescheduling exam submission deadlines

It may be possible to reschedule a submission deadline, if slots are available. Applicants (and candidates with an account) can do this up to 48 hours before a submission date. Rescheduling usually opens around one week after booking has closed.
