Exams at Public Venues – what’s changing

If you are booking exams at a Public Venue organised by us you can:

Choose your practical exam date and venue

  • When you book your exams you will be able to choose dates and venues from a list of available options. You will know your exam date(s) as soon as you book and pay.
  • You can choose your date and venue, but not the time of your exam. We will email you to confirm the time of your appointment(s) once the booking period has closed and we have finalised the timetables.

View exam venue details

  • You will be able to search for venues to check the full address and facilities and choose a venue that suits you and your candidates.

Change practical exam appointments online

  • Once the booking period has closed and we have confirmed your exam times, you can go online to search for and select an alternative exam slot, either at the same venue or at a different one.
  • You can do this up to 48 hours (two full days) before the exam date.

Key dates

  • The booking period for Music Theory Session 1 (June) is 3–17 April. This is when you can go online to book your Music Theory exams.

What you need to know

Booking periods for exams

  • The booking period is when you can book exams for the forthcoming exam session. Each booking period has an ‘opening date’ as well as a ‘closing date’.

Book early for more choice of practical dates

  • For the widest choice of practical dates and venues, book your exams as soon as the booking period opens. The earlier you book the more choice you will have.

What about Music Theory exams at a Public Venue?

  • Music Theory exams will continue to take place on set dates.

No late bookings at Public Venues

  • We are unable to accept late bookings. Please make sure you book all of your exams before the booking period closes.
