I have had my first candidate for ARSM through, and will have another one in the next academic year. 

 

I teach quite a lot of teenage students, some doing GCSE / A level Music, and some aren't.  For the most post-Grade 8 students, DipABRSM or ATCL are  too high target to meet, and for this I welcome the arrival of ARSM.  For my candidate, I am pleased to say he passed with merit, this has been a pleasurable journey programming to show case his strength.  This smaller step to a diploma after Grade 8 approach suited him well, and it will suit my next candidate also as she will be in her final school year - A levels looming!

I have my exam a week on Friday. Was able to practice on the exam piano during the examiner's lunch break yesterday, thanks to a friendly HLR, so hopefully will be more prepared as a result.

Well done Zizi, How long did the results take to come back?

I am not sure if we should be expecting results with the rest of the session (2-4 weeks) or on a diploma timeframe of 3 months? The exam is on 27th June

Hi, Masanta.

The result came up on-line with my grade exam results.  So the time scales is a few weeks at the most.

The mark sheet and actual diploma came with grade stuff as well.
