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.

Make musical learning more engaging with Classical 100

Challenge your children to complete a few Classical 100 activities this week. Listen, learn and explore all 100 pieces. The challenges are fun and flexible enough to use in a number of ways – from short starter activities to longer pieces of work spanning a few hours. In the next two chapters of our films below, ABRSM colleague Sarah demonstrates how to use the categorisation features and shares some of her favourite activities. In one of them, ClassicFM presenter Aled Jones introduces a creative task using Mussorgsky’s Baba Yaga.

“The children clearly loved taking part in the Classical 100 lessons, they were intrigued by the challenge titles and are looking forward to taking part in their next challenge and collecting more stars. It was great to be asked 'when can we do our next challenge?' at the end of the session!”
