Public centres in Ireland and group and pair public exams in the UK

Applicants, teachers and candidates based in the Republic of Ireland and who would usually enter face-to-face exams via our network of public centres should send their entry to their Local Area Representative, in the same way as for a face-to-face exam.

Entries for group (including In Production) and pair exams in the UK should also be made in this way. 

Entry forms and contact details can be found here:

Private centres in the UK and Ireland

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. There is no minimum fee for your booking, however, please do try to enter your candidates in groups of no less than 4 or 5 at a time.

When making your booking please:

  • Set your order end date to 2 months in the future (candidates will still need to upload their entries within two weeks of receiving log in details though)
  • Provide an email address for each candidate (or a single email address for the co-ordinator of your group or pair exam, which must be registered against all candidates). If you would like, you may enter your centre email address for all of your candidates and receive our communications on their behalf.
  • Follow the relevant Trinity Online centre portal guidance.

Timeframes and deadlines

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 and group (including In Production) and pair entries in the UK, should submit their exam order when their group is ready.

You can enter multiple candidates at the same time under one email address. Please put the email of whoever you would like to manage the booking as the candidate email, this is the email address that the log in details will be set up under. For group (including In Production) and pair entries you need only give a single email address for the co-ordinator of your group or pair exam, which must be registered against all candidates.

After you have booked your exam, you will receive your login details for our exam platform where you will be able to upload your exam performance. Login details will be sent to the email addresses provided within one week of submitting your order.

You will have two weeks to upload your exam entry from receipt of your login details.

You can expect the marking to take an average of two weeks for grades, and four weeks for diplomas, although this is often much quicker. Log back into your account, to read the feedback from the examiner and see your provisional result.

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. NB Group and pair exam results are sent out via email.

If your result is ‘referred’ by the examiner there will be a delay in these timescales of up to 30 working days. Our referrals team will be in touch with you if there is anything you need to do in order for your exam to be marked. Find out more about what a referral means on our syllabus infringement page.

Our handy checklists for Classical & Jazz, Rock & Pop and Drama & Speech can help ensure you aren't referred so please check these out before submitting.

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. For Digital Grades or Digital Diploma exams you will still be able to access your result via our Online Portal, and certificates will be despatched as soon as possible in term times.
