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 https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ 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.

We are committed to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our organisation or any of our supply chains. To help us identify and mitigate risks of slavery and human trafficking, we have the following protections in place:

  • Rigorously vetting new agents, contractors and suppliers before placing contracts with them, including taking references for all new suppliers
  • Obtaining assurance from existing suppliers that they abide by the new legislation and have checks in place for their own supply chains
  • Ensuring that our paper and materials are ethically and sustainably sourced
  • Complying with requirements to achieve a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) SKA rating, which requires office fit out materials to be sourced ethically and in an environmentally sustainable way
  • Using reputable agencies to source hotels for international travel and events
  • Thoroughly vetting and training all representatives (globally) and only engaging reputable organisations or individuals to act on our behalf
  • Only using reputable agencies to provide staff or services and ensuring that those staff are paid the national minimum wage, as a minimum
  • Complying with best practice when recruiting and employing staff
  • Establishing clear and effective lines of communication with our international representatives, and with examiners and staff travelling overseas, which they can use to report any concerns – we always act promptly on any feedback
