About Choral Singing exams 

We've designed our Choral Singing exams to support and motivate a wide range of choirs. They are face-to-face assessments that are open to singers of any age. 

Whether you’re a singer, teacher or director, we hope these exams inspire and support your music learning or teaching.  

Why do a Choral Singing exam?

Preparing for and taking a Choral Singing exam can help to give choirs a sense of progression and achievement from the earliest stages upwards. 

There are three levels of exam: 

  • Initial – for singers of around Grade 1 to 3 standard 
  • Intermediate – for singers of around Grade 4 to 5 standard 
  • Advanced – for singers of around Grade 6 to 8 standard
