Latest exam updates

Practical Session 2 Update – Oman

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be postponing the entry period for Session 2 Practical exams and we will provide an update about the exams scheduled for November - December as soon as we can.

We will provide updates about future exams sessions as soon as we can and our Representative will provide further guidance in due course.

We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Record-breaking Music Medals

7 years ago

For the fourth successive year a record-breaking number of candidates took ABRSM’s Music Medals assessments. Nearly 10,000 candidates participated in Music Medals in 2012, bringing the number of assessments taken to 60,000 since their launch in 2004. Penny Milsom, UK Operations Director, said 'Music Medals give teachers the flexibility to teach and assess in their own way and help candidates to bring together many of the skills needed to become fantastic musicians. We’re very proud to have reached the 60,000 mark and hope more and more candidates will benefit from them in 2013!' Since 2010 Music Medals have been made available in schools, hubs and through Music Services as well as to private music teachers. Jane Hargrave, teacher, Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust, said: 'Music Medals have made a significant impact in Northamptonshire. Being able to choose material to suit individuals’ needs and assessing our own pupils is the perfect way to encourage our students to reach new targets. Children enjoy the preparation process and the filming day becomes an enjoyable event without the need to go out of their school and familiar environment.' ABRSM has also produced a series of films for candidates and teachers exploring the Music Medals assessment programme for early stage learning. To watch the rest of the films in this series please visit our YouTube channel.

Coming soon

  • On Wednesday 30 March, ABRSM will host a ‘Creative Teaching: Introduction to Music Medals’ presentation at Rhinegold’s Music Education Expo 2013 at the Barbican Centre, London. For more information please visit www.musiceducationexpo.co.uk
