Registered Exam Centres can book by entering candidates on Trinity Online. Please enter your candidates via Trinity Online when the candidates have recorded, or are ready to record their exams.

For those who booked pre the 17th November please refer to your confirmation email as some of the details below will vary for you and get in touch if you have any further questions.
There is no deadline to book a Digital Grades and Diplomas exam. UK candidates entering online should book when they are ready to film and submit their entry and for music exams they may wish to film their entry before they make their booking.
Private centres arranging their own entries, along with Local Area Representatives co-ordinating entries in the Republic of Ireland, should submit their exam order when their group is ready.
You can enter multiple candidates at the same time under one booking. Please use the email address of the person you would like to manage the exam submission as the ‘submitter’ email. This is the email address that the log in details for our exam submission platform will be set up with. For group (including In Production) and pair entries you need only give a single email address for the submitter for your group or pair exam.
If the submitter is using the Trinity submission platform for the first time, they will receive an email containing their username and password. The submitter can then use the same account details for any future Digital Grade or Diploma exam submissions with Trinity College London.
The submitter will also receive an email with a link to upload the candidate’s submission. They have 14 days to complete the submission from when they receive this email. This is usually sent within 24 hours of the booking being made.
You can expect the marking to take an average of 2 weeks for grades. Marking of diplomas usually takes 4 weeks, and if there are further checks to be made, can take up to 8 weeks. The exam report will be sent by email to the exam submitter and, for public centres, to the email address provided for the candidate.
It takes about a week for your provisional result to be verified as final, and your certificate will follow within 2-4 weeks. At this stage, Registered Exam Centres will also be able to see their candidates’ results on Trinity Online.
If your result is ‘referred’ by the examiner there will be a delay in these timescales of up to 30 working days from the point the exam is referred depending on the type of referral. You will get an email notifying you of the referral and of any actions you need to take to ensure the exam is able to be marked. Find out more about what a referral means on our syllabus infringement page.
Please note that in school holiday periods there may be a delay in receiving your exam certificate, as some of our Public Centres, who despatch these to candidates, may be closed, certificates will be despatched as soon as possible in term times.
