Practical Exams Update – Portugal website

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel all Practical exams in Portugal until further notice. This decision affects all 2020 bookings for Practical Graded Music Exams, ARSM and Diplomas. Following this decision, we will process 100% refunds for all existing exam bookings and our Representative will provide further guidance in due course.

We are sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place. We are continuing to review when live Practical exams can resume in Portugal and will offer them again at the earliest possible opportunity.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.
