Latest exam updates
To support customers affected by ongoing COVID restrictions, for Practical and Performance Grade exams from 1 January to 31 May 2021 any absent candidate will automatically receive a refund. This includes Performance Grades where the candidate has been unable to record and upload their video. You do not need to contact us to request a refund. However, it will help us if you can log in to your account and cancel the exam.
For Online Music Theory exams and any paper based exams taking place outside of the UK/Ireland we anticipate COVID restrictions will not prevent candidates from sitting their exam so absentee candidates will not automatically receive a refund and our normal Withdrawal, Non-attendance and Fee Refunds Policy still applies.
Performance Grade booking
We will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. Please check here for dates and fees.

Before you book exams, you will need to register and create an ABRSM account.
You will need to do this even if you have an ABRSM applicant number. If you have an applicant number, please enter it when you register. This will allow us to link your old and new accounts.
Username and password - create a memorable username and password. Your username cannot be your email address or include the @ symbol. It must also be unique. You will be prompted to try again if someone else has already taken a username.
Email verification - You will need to do this once you have entered you email address in order to complete your registration. Click 'Send Verification Code' and you will receive a code via email. The email will be from ‘Microsoft on behalf of abrsmglobalb2c'. Enter the code in the ‘Verification Code’ box and click ‘Verify code’. Once your email address has been verified successfully you can complete the rest of the form, including adding your name and date of birth.
Date of birth - We use your date of birth, along with other personal information you supply, to create a unique and secure record for you.
Contact ID/Applicant Number: for applicants - if you have previously booked ABRSM exams and know your applicant number, enter it here. If you haven’t booked ABRSM exams before, leave this blank. Once you’ve created your account we will give you a Contact ID which allows us to identify you in our system.
Contact ID: for candidates - Candidates will be given a Contact ID once they’ve been entered for an exam. If a candidate (parent/carer) wishes to create an account, they should enter this Contact ID along with their date of birth when they register. Contact IDs appear on all communications about exam bookings and results.
Candidates can register and create an account, even if they have not made the booking themselves. Parents/carers can create this account on behalf of a child, but the account must be in the child's name.
Candidate accounts are optional, but having an account means that a candidate can log in to view information about their exams, change practical appointments at Public Venues, and view their results and practical mark forms seven days after we have released them to the applicant.
Candidates can create an account at any time:
Candidate accounts must be created in the candidate’s name, and their Contact ID and date of birth should be entered where requested. This is to make sure we can create a unique record for the candidate, which links their existing and future exam bookings.
