Latest exam updates

Grade 5 Music Theory waiver (not applicable in the UK & Ireland)

We are extending our Grade 5 Music Theory waiver until 23 May 2021. This means that candidates with a Grade 6 to 8 Performance Grade exam submission date up to and including 23 May can take their exam without first passing Grade 5 Music Theory. We are making this exceptional arrangement to allow candidates who have been unable to take an exam in recent months to progress with their learning. From 24 May, the Grade 5 Music Theory requirement will return. For exam dates/exam submission dates after 23 May, all candidates taking a Grade 6 to 8 Performance or Practical Grade must first pass Grade 5 Music Theory.

Performance Grade exams

We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. Please check here for dates and fees. We are extending the introductory 15% discount for these exams so that it applies to all remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams in 2021. Just enter code ABPG15MO when you book using our online service. Please also read our discount information and terms and conditions here.

To provide a more candidate-friendly experience, we will be moving the assessment of Music Theory at Grades 1 to 5 to an online exam.

With a focus on creating a more reliable and accessible assessment, our new Online Music Theory assessments give candidates the best opportunity to demonstrate their musical knowledge and understanding.

资源更新

《音乐理论练习》

我们未对第1至5级的《音乐理论练习》做出任何改动。它们仍然涵盖2018年起在这些级别的乐理考试所需的知识和技能。虽然书中的写节奏、写旋律、为歌词配旋律等部分与2018年起的考试没有直接关联,但这些书仍是宝贵的教学素材。

《First Steps in Music Theory》和《The AB Guide to Music Theory (Part 1)》

我们未对这些书做出任何改动。它们涵盖乐理的基本原理,能够很好地介绍第1至5级所需的知识和理解力。这些书在2018年以后仍继续为备考提供宝贵支持。

《往年试卷》

您仍可购买《往年试卷》和《模拟答案》(2016年及更早)。虽然这些试卷使用的是以前的形式,但它们仍继续提供宝贵的教学素材,并可与新的《练习试卷》一起使用。
