術科考試最新消息 澳門

我們明白取消考試對考生的影響重大,我們一直致力尋求解決方法,以確保考生能儘早獲得相關資格。

 

但是,根據官方和地方政府就新型冠狀病毒病的建議,我們已決定取消澳門的所有術科考試,直至另行通知。此決定將影響已報考2020術科等級考試、文憑考試、合唱和合奏考試的所有考生,但目前不影響樂理考試。基於此決定,我們將為所有已報考術科考試的考生辦理100全數退款。我們的代表處將在適當時候提供進一步的指導。

 

對於取消考試對老師和考生造成的影響,我們感到抱歉,同時感謝各位在此艱難時期對我們的諒解和支持。我們會繼續檢視什麼時候可以再次在澳門再次舉行即場考核的術科考試。

 

我們全新以演奏為重點的遠程評估等級考試 將為考生在這非常時期,提供了另一種可以向前邁進的途徑。這個以演奏為重點的考試,無論在考試要求、資格認可和價值各方面,均等同於我們的術科等級考試。兩個考試的曲目和考綱相同,評估標準和質量保證準則一致,並且均由曾接受嚴格訓練的考官進行評估。這全新的考試預計將在今年年底以前,開放予澳門考生報名,他們從即時起可開始為考試進行錄影。請瀏覽我們網頁查閱更多有關考試的資訊

General guidelines

ABRSM endeavours to make its assessments accessible to all candidates, regardless of sensory impairment or learning difficulty. It should be understood, however, that ABRSM’s policy does not make any concessions in terms of assessing standards, but rather we try to alter the administration of our assessments or, occasionally, to provide an alternative test or mode of assessment, in line with the particular needs of the candidate.

Arrangements

When entering candidates for a Medal, you will be asked to indicate any sensory impairment, learning difficulty or particular physical need using a series of tick boxes. It is important that we are informed of all candidates’ needs for our moderation purposes, as the administration of the assessment may be affected.

Where a candidate requires enlarged or modified Option tests or a Braille Option test, it is assumed that you as the Teacher-Assessor will produce these tests from your usual source after downloading the Option tests in the normal way.

Where a candidate requires extra time, you must obtain an authenticating document or assessment. This should be either from an Educational Psychologist, SEN teacher, GP or specialist, as appropriate. This document must outline the particular needs of the candidate and the likely impact on their Music Medals assessment. Valid documentation must be kept in your files, as ABRSM reserves the right to request this at any time.

Please note that all access details must be indicated for every online entry made.

Candidates with a sensory impairment or learning difficulty should be encouraged to choose the option test which best suits their requirements and strengths. However, it is recognised that extra time may be needed. The following arrangements apply for candidates with a visual impairment or Dyslexia:

Partially sighted candidates will be given an additional 30 seconds preparation time in their chosen option test. Please note that this does not apply in cases where the chosen option test is attempted by ear (Question & answer at Copper level, Make a tune at Copper & Bronze levels, Call & response at all levels), where no additional reading time is required.

It is assumed that Blind candidates will choose the Call and response option, or Make a tune by ear (at Copper and Bronze level). However if the candidate chooses an option that requires the test to be in Braille, Teacher-Assessors are advised to download the option tests as normal and produce a Braille test from their usual source. Please note that where a candidate chooses to read Braille, they will be given an additional 30 seconds preparation time.

Dyslexic candidates will be given an extra 30 seconds preparation time for the chosen option test, except for Call & Response where an immediate response is expected.

If you have a candidate whose needs are not covered by these arrangements, please contact our Access Coordinator, outlining the particular needs of the candidate, and the likely impact on their Music Medal assessment.

Modified stave notation is an alternative to Large Notation for partially sighted candidates. Option tests can be produced to the candidates preferred layout by altering stave sizes, bar lines and text which best suits their requirements and strengths.

Report forms

As the Teacher-Assessor you will need to be aware that although you may be sympathetic to the candidate, no special concession or allowance can be made in assessment, and the performance must be judged in accordance with the standard normally expected for each Medal.

Results

All results for candidates with access needs will be administered in the same way and forwarded to the Teacher-Assessor as soon as possible.

Braille results

In addition to the standard printed copy, Braille certificates can be issued if requested at the time of entry. These certificates are produced by the RNIB and will be forwarded as soon as they are available.

If you have any queries regarding this information and entering a candidate with access needs, please contact the Access Coordinator.
