How it compares to the other qualifications out there.
The learning outcomes from the Foundation course are the equivalent to starting at Debut and completing a Grade 2. Each exam board have their own way of getting you to your goal. Orange have chosen to group their grades together in this course which some users may prefer as there are less exams to take to get to Grade 8. However, each exam is more intense than their relative graded exams so it is not for the faint-hearted!
On passing this exam, you will receive 27 UCV points.
