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.

Music Theory Exam update – session two

On the basis of government advice, we are cancelling the Music Theory exams due to take place later in 2020. We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your ongoing loyalty and support

High Scorers' Concerts feature performances from an array of the UK’s most talented young musicians who have achieved high scores in their recent ABRSM Practical exams.

High Scorers’ Concerts give musicians the opportunity to share their achievements with a wider audience outside the exam room in a supportive and celebratory setting.

High Scorers' Concert

The first High Scorers’ Concerts were held in 1989 as part of ABRSM’s centenary celebrations. As we enter our 126th year, we now hold hundreds of concerts all over the world. Thousands of high scoring candidates have taken part and performed in front of an appreciative audience of teachers, parents, fellow students and other music enthusiasts.
