I would be very grateful if any member(s) could supply the following stats:
(I) The number of students taking each of the ABRSM graded I - VIII exams (any of the last ten years);
(II) The pass rate for each of the ABRSM graded I - VIII exams (again, any of the last ten years);
(III) The number (and types) of university courses (and if possible the names of the providers) that include qualifying ABRSM, LCM & Trinity grade classes when calculating applicant's total UCAS scores.
And finally -
Re. the practical (performance) music grades VI - VIII: can an examinee accumulate UCAS points by passing the qualifying examinations in different instruments (say piano and violin) or is the final UCAS score calculated on the basis of the single best performance. To illustrate:
Grade VIII Piano (Distinction) = 75 UCAS Points
Grade VIII Violin (Merit) = 70 UCAS Points
Could the examinee claim a total 145 UCAS points or just 75 (or only the 70 if opting for a violin based course)?
Not too much to ask for a first post eh?
