We are pleased to announce that candidates in China will soon be able to take our digital music exams. These include:

  • Digital Performance Grades and ARSM diplomas – the first booking period is 4 March (15.00 local time) to 9 March (07.59 local time) with video submission dates in April.
  • Online Music Theory exams (Grades 1 to 5) – coming later this year. We will provide an update as soon as we can.

About Performance Grades

Performance Grades provide candidates with an opportunity to develop their performance skills and gain an internationally recognised qualification. These exams are equivalent in demand and value to our Practical Grades but with a focus on performance. They are based on the same repertoire and are assessed by the same highly-trained examiners.

Performance Grades, and digital ARSM diplomas, are assessed from a video recording made and submitted by the candidate. To help candidates take their exams at the best time for them we offer regular, monthly sessions for these exams.

About online Music Theory exams

Our online Music Theory exams are available for Grades 1 to 5 and give learners an opportunity to demonstrate and be assessed on their musical knowledge and understanding. The online exams feature updated questions and are available on-demand, so candidates can book and take exams at any time.

Although Grade 1 to 5 Music Theory exams now take place online we are testing the same musical knowledge and understanding to the same high standards.

Next steps

We will provide further information about Performance Grades and how to book on our WeChat channel – “abrsm-official” – in the coming weeks.  Please look out for updates.  

For local support contact your ABRSM representative who will be happy to help.
