Practical Session 2 Update - Qatar

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 November-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 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Working with Arts Council England

In 2017 ABRSM initiated The Music Commission with backing from Arts Council England. The panel, chaired by Sir Nicholas Kenyon, Managing Director of the Barbican Centre, brought together performers, academics, educators and sector experts.  The Music Commission’s final report was published on 4 March 2019. It sets out key themes and recommendations for improving how governments, music organisations, schools, teachers, parents and learners, support progress and progression in learning music.
