Performance Grades are currently not yet available in the following countries: Austria, Falkland Islands, Madagascar, Malawi, Sierra Leone & Zimbabwe.
In March we introduced online programme forms for Performance Grades and digital ARSM diplomas. Instead of candidates showing a paper programme form to the camera at the start of the exam recording, the person submitting the video enters the programme details online. Find out more.
Performance Grades are available at Grades 1 to 8 for a wide range of instrumental and singing subjects, plus Initial Grade for Piano and Bowed Strings.
These digital exams focus on performance. They are assessed from a video recording and are available on demand. There are no booking periods or exam sessions. Instead, you can book, pay and submit the exam video whenever you’re ready. You can submit the video when you book or at any time during the following 28 days.
Recorded accompaniment is now an option alongside live accompaniment for Performance Grades. Find out more.
Our ARSM Performance diploma is also available as a digital exam. Find out more.
