If your exam day works out at less than six hours, you can let us know whether you would prefer your exams to take place in the morning or afternoon by using the Notes section when you are booking.

Before the exam 

The process
  1. Once you've submitted your learners, we'll send you the paperwork to prepare for exam day

    We take online security and child protection seriously so please read over our online safety policy carefully, and ask your learners’ parents or guardians to sign the online safety agreement for remote online assessments. This can then either been scanned or photographed, and uploaded via a secure link that we will send to the centre coordinator. We must receive the signed policy before your exam event. 

  2. We'll need a list of pieces your learners are performing

    Own-choice pieces should be uploaded via a secure link either as a JPEG or PDF file. We won’t be able to check the suitability of the pieces for you, but we’ll make sure the examiner has a copy during your learners’ exams. 

  3. How to prepare for an online exam

    As learners will be taking their exams in their own homes, they’ll need to find and prepare a suitable space to take their exam. We’ve created a guide for learners, and their chaperones which offers instructions for setting up their space and equipment which you can find on the Learner Hub or via the button below. Please check your learners’ intended exam space and equipment in good time before the exam, and speak to their parent or guardian about acting as chaperone for the exam. 

  4. On Exam Day

    Learners and their chaperones will need to sign into Zoom five minutes before their exam time and will be greeted in the waiting room by one of our stewards. When the examiner is ready for them, they will be let into the exam session. After a few checks to make sure that everyone’s equipment is working, the chaperone will be asked to leave the room, and the exam can begin.
