NEW ID checks from January 2020 candidates taking ABRSM Theory exams Grades 5-8, Practical exams Grades 6-8, the Jazz Practical exam Grade 5 & the ARSM Diploma will need to bring a form of photo ID to their exam. If this is applicable to your child, we shall keep you fully informed.
Change to the ABRSM Theory Syllabus as of January 2018 ABRSM made changes to the Music Theory exams at Grades 1 to 5 with the removal of the SATB and composition aspects of the syllabus. Although we do not support the dumbing-down of any syllabus, their aim is to create a better exam experience for candidates with more focus on the essential music theory knowledge and understanding needed at this level.
