Practical exams return to Malaysia

3 weeks ago


Between 10-19 January 2022, we will be running a Practical exam session at the Eastin Hotel, Selangor. This is a pilot session, open to candidates who are able to attend an exam in Petaling Jaya. Booking will open between 6-13 December.

In this session, exams will be conducted by a trained ABRSM exam facilitator who will deliver the full exam, which will be audio and video recorded. The recording will then be assessed by an ABRSM examiner in the UK. For candidates, the exam will be exactly the same as a normal Practical grade, with all sections of the exam being administered by the exam facilitator.

Entries will be accepted for Grades 1 to 8 for Piano and Violin only. We are offering a 50% discount on exam fees for this pilot session. Although the exam will be fully accredited and a certificate sent as normal, results may be released outside of our published deadlines.

There are limited exam slots available on a first come first served basis. Please read the Instructions Document below. Further information can be found on our Dates and Fees page including links to documents that candidates need to download and present at the exam venue:

Please note, all candidates will be asked to complete a post-exam survey about their exam experience.

Prior to making the booking, please carefully read: Instructions for completing Facilitated Practical Grade Exams
