Performance Grades

Introducing Performance Grades

To avoid 28-day exam deadlines falling during the Christmas holiday period, we are closing booking for all digital exams from 23.59 on 24 November to 00.00 on 5 December (UK times). 

Performance Grades are digital exams assessed from a video recording. They focus on performance skills and are available at Grades 1 to 8 for a wide range of instrumental and singing subjects, plus Initial Grade for Piano and Bowed Strings.

Performance Grades for Jazz Piano, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet and Trombone will be available worldwide from January 2024.
