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 the Royal Philharmonic Society

Our collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) focusses on helping musicians develop the skills necessary to build sustainable careers and inspire musical achievement in the next generation.

Our partnership supports the delivery of their Women Conductors initiative, a series of workshops for women at different stages of their career, from school-age to professional.

We also support the RPS Young Composers Programme. Composition is a core part of both RPS and ABRSM activity, and as a commissioning body and publisher, we value skilled composers and recognise the challenges of building a career in composition.

Previously, we've sponsored their Learning & Participation Award and their Barbirolli Fund, which provides musical instruments for students entering music college.
