Exam refunds

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.

Music Theory exams – March 2021

  • Online Music Theory exams (Grades 1 to 5) – we are cancelling the online exams planned for 16 March. Exams in May and June will go ahead as planned.
  • Paper Music Theory exams (Grades 6 to 8) – the next exams will take place in June. Please note, dates and booking periods for Grades 1-5 and Grades 6-8 may be different from now on. For full details, see our dates and fees page.
  • Grade 5 Music Theory requirement - from 1 January to 30 April 2021 only, candidates can take Grade 6 to 8 Performance or Practical exams without first passing Grade 5 Music Theory. From 1 May 2021, the Grade 5 Music Theory requirement will return with flexibility about timing. If you receive an email asking for your proof of prerequisite, please ignore this. We will still release any results in line with the arrangements outlined here.

我们的分级考试旨在激励各年龄段及具备各种能力的器乐 和声乐学生。 考试分为八个级别——第一至八 级——并提供:

  • 进步的目标;
  • 对成绩的肯定;
  • 架构严谨的考试规则;
  • 专家一对一的评估;
  • 针对考生技能和进度的客观指导。

考试没有年龄限制,学生可以从任何 级别开始或者跳级。


我们相信全面的音乐素养有着重要意 义,这构成了我们考试的基础。要成 为一个全能音乐家,学生需要一系列 环环相扣的技能——表现、技巧、识 谱、听力和乐感——以及知识、理解 力和创造力。这些是我们在考试中要 评估的内容。

要在考试中取得成功,考生需要技能 与理解力相结合。大体上,我们:

  • 通过乐曲或歌曲来评估表现技能;
  • 通过音阶和琶音(对于声乐考生则是 无伴奏传统歌曲)来评估技巧技能;
  • 通过视奏测试来评估识谱技能;
  • 通过听觉测试来评估听力技能和 乐感 。


我们也鼓励学生学习音乐的内在规 律。他们可以通过我们的乐理、实际 音乐技巧和爵士乐考试来探索音乐知 识、理解力和创造力。

理解音乐的内在规律,有助于学生在 进行音乐创作时有更深刻的认识、自 信和感受。随着学生在学习过程中的 进步,这也将变得越发重要。因此, 想参加第六级或以上的器乐或声乐考 试的考生必须先通过乐理、实际音乐 技巧或爵士乐器独奏第五级(或以 上)的考试。这确保他们拥有成功演 绎较高级别考纲中的音乐的知识和理 解力。


这一全面的方法帮助学生理解、表现 和享受音乐。它为学生的音乐成长奠 定了坚实的基础,并且提供让学生终 生受用的一套技能。
