Practical Session 2 Update - India

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. 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. We are unable to offer Music Theory exams at Grades 6 to 8. The closing date is Monday 12 October. To book exams you will need to register and create an account with our new online booking service.

The making and meaning of popular music – a podcast

Describing itself as ‘a podcast breaking down the music of pop hits’, Switched on Pop is presented by two classical music geeks who are as comfortable talking about Liszt as they are Little Mix.

Co-hosted by Nate Sloan, Assistant Professor in Musicology at USC (University of Southern California), and Charlie Harding, a songwriter and producer, Switched on Pop uncovers ‘a-ha’ moments in music and links to the classical genre by posing fun questions like: ‘Does the falsetto in One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful essentially make them our modern day Castrati?’. Listen on Classic FM, Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
