New online booking service for music exams in 2017


Music online booking

After the successful piloting of a new online booking service for music exams at five centres in London earlier this year, Trinity is extending this to include over 40 centres across the UK for the summer 2017 exam session.

The new service brings many benefits – it allows applicants to:

  • book and pay for practical music exams
  • choose the most convenient exam centre
  • select a preferred date
  • receive a confirmed time and appointment slip by email within 24 hours of booking

This service will make it much easier for teachers, parents and candidates to plan around exams.

All music grade, certificate and recital diploma exams (including percussion) are included in the summer session. Theory, Ensembles and Rock & Pop exams are not included.


Pilot booking period

Online booking for exams taking place in June or July 2017 is open from 19 April, and will close four weeks before the corresponding exam session begins.
