A message from our Chief Executive – our future plans
Singing exams from 2018 consist of three accompanied songs at all grades, chosen by the candidate from the appropriate lists in the current syllabus, an unaccompanied song, sight-singing and aural tests. Grade 6–8 exams up until the end of 2017 consist of four accompanied songs rather than three.
Total marks in all individual Practical exams are 150. 100 marks are required to achieve Pass, 120 marks to pass with Merit and 130 marks to pass with Distinction.
There are eight grades of assessment. Select a grade using the links below in order to view the syllabus and supporting materials for that grade.
