Latest exam updates

Practical Session 2 Update

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we are continuing to postpone the entry period for Session 2 Practical.

Provided travel and COVID restrictions are lifted, we hope to open a booking period from 17 August – 23 August with exams to be held November - December. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings will be conditional on restrictions that are currently in place being lifted. Update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Music Theory Session B Update

We are postponing the Music Theory exam in Indonesia from 13 September 2020 to 25 October 2020.

The new booking period for Music Theory exams is 3 July – 17 July 2020. As this situation is still evolving, theses dates are subject to change. We will update all our customers if we need to make further changes.

Where to find sheet music

In these extraordinary times, teachers, learners and musicians of all kinds will be finding new ways to keep their musical journeys going. ABRSM is committed to continuing to support those journeys, just as we always have.

Many retailers are continuing to provide sheet music, books, instruments and accessories through online or mail order services. All the shops listed here sell a wide range of sheet music, including ABRSM exam music and repertoire, and all are able to take orders online or over the phone. We’ll be updating this list and invite UK music shops to please get in touch!

If you are looking for new sheet music to inspire you, please consider supporting these businesses – and visit our Play On website to find ways of sharing your music making with us and the wider musical community!
