Practical Session 2 Update - Bahrain

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 3

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.

Working with the Royal Philharmonic Society

Our collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) focusses on helping musicians develop the skills necessary to build sustainable careers and inspire musical achievement in the next generation.

Our partnership supports the delivery of their Women Conductors initiative, a series of workshops for women at different stages of their career, from school-age to professional.

We also support the RPS Young Composers Programme. Composition is a core part of both RPS and ABRSM activity, and as a commissioning body and publisher, we value skilled composers and recognise the challenges of building a career in composition.

Previously, we've sponsored their Learning & Participation Award and their Barbirolli Fund, which provides musical instruments for students entering music college.
