Exam Refunds – Practical Session 1 & 2

We are currently working to issue refunds for all exams cancelled due to COVID-19.

For entries submitted online, all exam fees have been refunded to the original payment card and should be received by 14 September 2020. If you card has been replaced since you made the entry, the refund should be redirected to your new card automatically. If you have any queries in relation to this, please contact your card provider.

If you submitted a paper entry form to your State Education Department, you must submit a refund request to the Examinations Syndicate in Malaysia with complete documentation attached by 14 September 2020. Manual refunds may take between 1 to 2 months to process. Any queries relating to manual refunds should be sent to [email protected]. Thank you for your patience.

Prerequisite

Candidates for Grade 6, 7 or 8 exams must already have passed ABRSM Grade 5 (or above) in Music Theory, Practical Musicianship or a solo Jazz instrument. For full details including a list of accepted alternatives, see Regulation 1d.

Syllabus

Instruments

This syllabus is suitable for three-valved instruments at all grades. For those pieces containing notes that require a 4th valve (and where an ossia is not published), candidates may adapt the affected passages.

The repertoire lists indicate the clefs in which the pieces are published. If necessary, candidates may use manuscript transpositions into treble or bass clef.

Examiners will ask candidates whether they are bass- or treble-clef readers.
