Online Music Theory exams in November

If you have candidates taking online Music Theory exams on 10 November, make sure you have sent them their login details and the online checklist link included in the same email as the log in details. They will need these well before the exam to: read the online checklist, download the exam software, run through the pre-exam set up and log in to test the practice questions. On the day of the exam the practice questions will not be available via the software but can also be found here under ‘More free resources’ . Candidates should open the software 15-30 minutes before the exam start time to run through the pre-exam set up. The live test will then be available at the exam start time. If you are a parent and do not have your child’s login details yet, contact the person who booked the exam.

There is currently no local ABRSM representative in Slovakia, so all exam arrangements are handled by the Practical and Music Theory teams in our London office. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee to hold exams in your area but please contact us as below if you're interested. 

To make an entry, complete the relevant entry form, then scan and email it to [email protected] for Practical and Diploma exam entries, or [email protected] for Theory exam entries, by the closing date for that session. Find out more about our exam fees, closing dates and exam periods.

Theory exams can only be held as Visits at schools of general education or LEA music centres approved by ABRSM in line with our regulations.

If you're entering candidates for both Theory and Practical exams, please complete separate entry forms and send them to the appropriate team.

If exams are possible, we'll then give you ABRSM’s bank details and a unique code for each candidate, which should be included in the payment reference for the bank transfer. This ensures that we're able to link your payment to your entry.

You'll receive approximately 2-3 weeks’ notice of the exam appointment(s) for your Practical exam candidate(s) and Theory exam materials will be posted to the host venue four weeks before the exam.
