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.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for October-December. Our Representatives 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.

Music Theory results – update 6 April

Unfortunately, results for the Music Theory exams taken in March in the regions listed below in USA will be delayed. This is because the COVID-19 situation has meant that offices and premises worldwide are less accessible, including ABRSM’s offices in London.  At the moment we do not know when we will be able to release these results, and we are sorry that this is disappointing news. We are doing everything we can to keep the process moving and to release results as soon as we can.
