Latest exam updates

Practical Session 2 Update – Germany

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

Provided travel and COVID restrictions remain lifted, we will open a booking period from 11 August– 21 August September with exams to be held November - December. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings remains conditional on the restrictions continuing to be lifted. An update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can and our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are looking forward to providing candidates with exams again and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Working with Make Music Day

Make Music Day - 21 June - is a national and international celebration of music-making. ABRSM contributes to the Make Music Day UK steering group, led by Making Music. Over the years, we’ve organised fun events to add to the celebrations such as the Big City Sing (2017) in partnership with Music In Offices, and the Piano Medley Relay (2018).   In 2020, the Coronavirus lockdown meant that all activities for Make Music Day took place online.  For our contribution, more than 700 musicians, from infant school pupils to retirees united virtually from around the world for an online performance of the Disney song, ‘How Far I’ll Go’
