For further information, please contact your local Desk Officer.

Venues

At ABRSM we do our very best to allocate your students to their preferred exam venue as selected on the entry form. However it is important to note that this may not always be possible for reasons outside of our control, for example:

  • If an exam venue does not attract sufficient interest from candidates, it may not be viable for us to hold the exams there. This is an example of when a venue is undersubscribed and we may need to allocate students to the nearest available exam centre
  • If an exam venue attracts a very large amount of interest from candidates, it may not be possible to fit everyone into the venue (this is particularly the case for Music Theory exams, which occur on one day and are affected by the fact that each venue has a maximum capacity that we must adhere to for health and safety reasons). This is an example of when a venue is oversubscribed and we may need to allocate students to the nearest available exam centre
  • For Practical exams, we are increasing the number of areas in which studios are available (view further information); however, some studios may only be available for a certain period within the exam session. This is another example of when a venue is oversubscribed and we may need to allocate students to the nearest available exam centre.

If we need to allocate your students to a different exam centre, we do so in liaison with your local education department to ensure that the most convenient alternative centre is provided. It is not possible to contact Applicants individually to discuss these changes in advance due to the high volume of cases we handle each exam session – however, you will receive notification of your exam centre in advance and you can contact your local education department if you have any queries.

Candidate lists

Candidate lists will be sent out to your local education department after the exam appointments have been published online. The majority of education departments will post candidate lists out to applicants – however, some departments will ask applicants to collect them. For further advice please contact your local education department.

You may wish to bring your candidate list to the exam – however, this is not mandatory.
