Practical Session 2 update - Brunei Darussalam

We are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for  August – September. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Performance Grades

For the first time in ABRSM history, take centre stage and share your love of performance with our additional route to progress.
Available at Grades 1 to 8 for a wide range of instrumental and singing subjects, this 100% assessed from recordings exam is all about performance - you and your audience, you and your music, you and your instrument.
