Practical Session 2 Update - USA

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.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

In our Music Performance and Instrumental/Vocal Teaching diplomas candidates play or sing a Quick Study, which is a short piece of unaccompanied and previously unseen music. The standard required is similar to ABRSM Grade 6, 7 or 8 for DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM respectively.

One specimen Quick Study is available for each diploma, to help candidates understand the technical level required and what to expect in the exam. For further practice, candidates can explore the repertoire lists for their instrument at Grade 6, 7 or 8.
