How It Works

  • As a student, once you have learnt your course material and feel
    prepared, you can take an exam at any time and on any date.
  • Seriously, it is up to you when you sit your exam, as long as you have good internet connection, you can take your exam anywhere. (In your house, on holiday, at school…)
  • Your exam performance is captured via video and audio recordings and then sent to our dedicated examiners to mark. (We have a guide to ensure that you are set up correctly before your exam is recorded).
  • Once the exam starts, an automated examiner (AIE) will set each task.
  • Students will be asked to play the exercises and performance pieces by their chosen course provider.
  • As the exam process is completely online (and therefore very efficient), we are able to mark and send certificates within days (rather than the standard timeline of 2-4 weeks with alternative boards).
  • Students will be sent their marks and digital certificate directly to their account.

Accreditation & Quality Assurance

One of the reasons we are the first and only provider of government accredited, online music exams to grade 8, is our attention to detail and quality control.

Our examiners can review exam material in the marking room with more accuracy through the replaying of the exam, cutting the need to look away to write while you play. Examiners can also see the student and their playing in more detail than current face to face exams as the recording is much closer. The only examiners marking your exam will be the ones who specialise in your instrument of choice, so no more piano examiners marking your drum exams. Our FPS (frames per second) checker helps to ensure a good quality of image and audio syncing. We have independent moderators who also mark your exam to make sure our examiners are always accurate. Under these recording conditions students can afford to relax and perform in familiar surroundings. Below are our regulatory and accrediting bodies.
