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.

Where the repertoire lists include an arrangement or transcription, you should use the edition listed; in all such cases the abbreviation ‘arr.’ or ‘trans.’ appears in the entry.
For all other pieces, the editions quoted in the repertoire lists are recommendations only and you can use any edition of their choice (in- or out-of-print or downloadable).
All own-choice repertoire should exist in a published edition (either in print or downloadable), which you should indicate on the programme form.
To be eligible for an ARSM exam, candidates need to have passed ABRSM Grade 8 in the instrument being presented. A number of alternative qualifications are also accepted in place of an ABRSM Grade 8. Similarly, a Grade 8 in a closely-related instrument is accepted. For more information about the prerequisite, please see the FAQ page.
For more information on how ARSM moves candidates on from Grade 8, here's an explanatory video.
