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.

We are making some changes to the way you book exams and receive results. These changes will apply from September 2020.

  • We are introducing a new online exam booking service.
  • If you are booking practical exams at a Public Venue organised by us, you will be able to choose your exam date and venue from a list of options, and change appointments online.
  • If you are booking practical exams at a Private Visit, you can upload a list of candidates to your booking and use our online timetabling tool to arrange your exam day(s).
  • For Performance Grades, you’ll be able to choose an exam submission slot from a list of options.
  • Practical and Performance Grade exam results will be available more quickly – within a week of the exam, subject to quality assurance checks – with digital mark forms available online as soon as we release your results.
  • Our new candidate account option will give learners and parents easy access to essential exam information.

These changes apply to the following exams: all graded music exams, ARSM, Prep Test, Performance Assessment.

We are no longer accepting paper entry forms for these exams. Instead, you will need to book and pay online using a credit or debit card, with payment in UK Pounds (GBP). You can also pay with PayPal linked to a credit or debit card.

Arrangements for all other exams are staying the same. For the Prep Test and Performance Assessment, examiners will continue to issue certificates on the exam day. For DipABRSM, LRSM, FRSM, Choral Singing and Ensemble exams, you will still need to book exams by post using a downloadable entry form.
