ABRSM Theory Exam Syllabus
ABRSM Update Announcement 30 June – Music Theory Exams
“Many people have been asking about our Music Theory exams, in particular when learners will be able to take their Grade 5 exam. We have been listening and working hard to find a solution.
We recognise that the worldwide response to the coronavirus pandemic will continue to disrupt large gatherings of candidates. As a result, we have accelerated our plans to move the assessment of Music Theory at Grades 1 to 5 to an online exam, instead of a paper-based one.
ABRSM Online Grade 5 Theory Exam 26 August
The first online Music Theory exam will be a live pilot taking place on Wednesday 26 August (more details to follow). The Grade 5 exam is for candidates in the UK with a booking period of 27 to 31 July. The core knowledge and understanding assessed in the exam is not changing and candidates will be able to take the exam in any location where they have internet access. We will provide all the information you need for this exam, including how to book, in the week beginning 13 July.
Following this live pilot we will be offering online Music Theory exams at Grades 1 to 5 in the autumn, along with Grades 6 to 8 which will continue as paper-based exams.”
