Practical Session 2 Update - Malta

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

Unfortunately government restrictions have not lifted in time for us to open the postponed booking period. Therefore we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for October-December. Our Representative will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

The booking period for online Music Theory exams at Grades 1 to 5 is now open. The closing date is Monday 12 October. For information about Grades 6 to 8, see our dates and fees page. To book exams you will need to register and create an account with our new online booking service.

Lucy is Content Producer at ABRSM looking after the blog, our online magazine, Libretto, and a range of other written materials and resources. She has a musical background and studied the piano at the Royal Academy of Music. When not writing, commissioning and editing for ABRSM, Lucy enjoys spending time with her two young boys, baking and exploring the Essex countryside.

With 2017 well and truly here, this is a chance to say Happy New Year from all of us at ABRSM. It’s also time to introduce our new blog and tell you about our new home. The blog will be somewhere to share news, ideas and opinions about the wonderful world of music and music education. And it’s not just going to be about ABRSM or exams. Yes, there’ll be posts from us, but we’re also inviting many others to get involved. As the year continues you’ll find contributions from teachers, students, parents, schools, examiners, musicians, composers and many more. If it’s about music or music education then it has a place here! We’d also love to know what kind of topics or people you’d like to see in the blog. Perhaps there’s something you’d like to write about. We promise to consider all suggestions, so if you have any ideas for the future please leave a comment below. And if you’d like to keep up to date with the latest posts, just send us your details using the sign-up form. Aside from the new blog, we’re all excited about being in our new offices at 4 London Wall Place, in the City of London. At the moment we’re still busy settling in, but it’s already starting to feel like home. We’re also looking forward to welcoming our first visitors and bringing some music making into the building. We have examiners and Local Representatives coming for training sessions and seminars in January and February, followed by exam candidates in March and April. We hope all our visitors like it here as much as we do. Until the next time, thanks for reading and have a happy and musical 2017!
