Latest Exam News: Updated 22 July

Updating our service to you – from booking exams to receiving results

We are changing the way you book exams and receive results. 

  • We are introducing a new online exam booking service for all graded music exams, ARSM, Prep Test and Performance Assessment. This includes our new online Music Theory and Performance Grade exams.
  • If you are booking practical exams at a Public Venue organised by us, you can choose your exam date and venue from a list of options, and change appointments online.
  • If you are booking practical exams at a Private Visit, you can upload a list of candidates to your booking and use our online timetabling tool to arrange your exam day(s).
  • For remotely-assessed Performance Grades, you can choose an exam submission slot from a list of options.
  • Practical and Performance Grade exam results will be available more quickly – within a week of the exam, subject to quality assurance checks – with digital mark forms available online as soon as we release your results.
  • Our new candidate account option will give learners and parents easy access to essential exam information.

You will need to create a new ABRSM account before you book exams, even if you have an existing ABRSM Applicant Number.  We will email all exam applicants when you can go online to create you new account.

Please note, we no longer accept paper entry forms for the exams listed above. Instead, you will need to book and pay online using a credit or debit card or PayPal.

There are no changes to arrangements for DipABRSM, LRSM, FRSM, Choral Singing and Ensemble exams.
